    Hi guys, i'm changing a few things in my room (mainly getting some mission speakers and av receiver.

    I have a little shelving unit to my left which holds the 21" CRT that i use as a second monitor and screen for my xbox.

    It is the only thing in the whole room that doesn't match wood wise so i'm looking for something that is beech.

    I love the look of this -

    Completely the wrong colour though.

    I need silver and beech or silver and glass or beech and glass etc... You get the idea.

    Have searched MFI, Ikea etc... but can't find much.

    Can anyone help?

    I know it's an odd request but am in need of it soonish :)

    i reckon you'll have more look with specialist hifi retailors than the likes of ikea etc.

    what sort of budget you thinking of?

    Budget is under £100 ideally otherwise i would have gone for a Alphason but they are just too expensive.

    I did find this one which don't look too bad -

    thats actually a good idea, couple of coats of silver on the black bits (assuming you can mask or remove the glass) and it would look quite good.

    Is that stand in the OP a Apollo stand, if so they are quite pricey ;)

    You can get wooden HiFi stands from the bay quite often, usually go for about £80.

    Will take another pic once i've got my AV Receiver (picking up tonight) and put it on there along with my xbox and 21" CRT (This shelf says it can hold 80KG :o)
