Re: Installing Stereo Deck in Cabinet - Best Way to Support
I just have to pipe in again.
There is a good chance, that by the time you work out how and where to cut the hole and how to support the stereo, it will be replaced by a new model, with more features, for less money, and it will be smaller than the unit you bought and custom installed.
And, if it breaks, you won't be able to get it repaired for lack of parts. You'll be left with a hole.
Where in your home is your console stereo record player, your VHS deck, or your 26" tube TV?
I'm sitting here in my living room, facing a piece of $2,000 Shaker design furniture, that has the 40" flat screen TV on top because it doesn't fit inside where the TV is supposed to go. It has a drawer with dividers for VHS tapes. It's a really nice piece of furniture, but in no way functional.
Don't do it.
With an iPod and a dock for the iPod you can take up little counter space and you can take it outside, to the beach or use it at home. When Apple recalls the iPod because the battery overheats, you can get a new one for free, 1/3 the size and more features, for nothing. I'm speaking from experience, because I now have two 6th generation Nanos, replacing the 1st generation Nanos I returned.
And I have a $25 piece of Shaker furniture.
