    Tv/ hi fi stand that has room for turntable ..where ? 2nd Jun 17 at 4:59 PM
    Howdy !
    Just moved into my new flat . Boxes evrrywhere
    I was just putting together my seperates system from the '80s/ 90s,plus my tv temporarily in the living room to see what gives.
    Bare in mind, I nearly spent a lot of cash on an all in one system .not very m s e

    I have a lovely toshiba tv on a nice tv stand. There is only one immediate shelf, which holds my old Cambridge audio amp.
    At the very bottom is a nackamichi c d multiplayer .
    What I would like to know, is if there is a very similar stand that would hold an extra shelf which would hold my turntable .

    Please help if you can .

    Thanks

    Not sure what the stand looks like but have you looked at the ikea Besta stuff? They have an online designer which is really easy to use and you can configure the unit however you want.

    I was also going to suggest IKEA Besta and a tv wall mount...

    I would love to put a separates Hi-Fi system together again.
    I used to have a good one, many years ago now...
    Sherwood Tuner/Amp
    Technics Turntable
    Denon CD
    AKAI twin cassette deck
    Classic Wharfedale tall floor speakers x4
    Ah, the joys of listening to good music on quality hardware...
    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.
    R.I.P. T.P.

    Thanks scot
    Yeah , I used to read the hifi mags in the '80s and it was great fun buying the seperates in stages . A bit every couple of months
    Now it's so easy to have music and a lot cheaper with wireless / Bluetooth etc

    Generally it is cheaper to create lower quality sound.

    What seperates do you have?

    Update : I've wired all the seperates up . The tv is now mounted to the wall . The turntable is on top of the tv stand . All good .

    The tv unit is a black , glass oval shaped affair .

    The annoying thing is , I have a couple of small set top boxes , an Apple TV box and a Mac mini . They take the look off of the setup.
    The Apple TV is at the rear of the top shelf next to the turntable and it looks good .
    If anyone has any ideas of a small unit/ box or something that I could put the small stuff on , that would be much appreciated

    Bet it sounded good though, even a basic set up.

    I remember the Nakamishi Dragon cassette deck, that thing had more buttons than most jet aircrafts of the same era.

    Yeah, sounds great
    As I'm not totally settled yet, I've been playing music through you tube via Apple TV . During the week, I may get the cds and vinyl,out
