The 875 would fit on the bottom shelf of the Equinox hi-fi rack, but it's too heavy at 23.5kg, whereas the shelf is designed to hold 20kg.

The XL Pro SE is the one to go for, as it can handle 25kg per shelf.

I use the equinox av stand and I never understood why the equinox stand could take 75kg on top shelf but only 25kg on bottom because the structure is exactly the same as is the glass shelf - i have my 875 on the bottom shelf of mine along with a xbox 360 and wii and touch wood so far have had no issues. I also have an equinox hifi stand and on the bottom shelf i have both a roksan kandy amp and power amp these must be close to 28kg and again no issues

Potential for interference, heat problems in that the one below will heat the one above (which I'm sure is a line from Sweeney Todd!), and the fact that the one on top won't be as solidly 'planted' as the one on the bottom.

In general terms it's best not to stack hi-fi equipment; in terms of amplifiers that's doubly true.

Oh, and the combined weight of the two is 28kg, which brings us back to the original question.

I have my Sony SACD player on top of my Meridian G61 surround processor and my new Panasonic BD50 on top of the SACD player, mmm...

What did you end up doing Smurphy? Did you make a decision and if so are you pleased with it?

My problem is that I need a rack or unit that's deep enough to fit an Onk 875 or Yamaha 1800 - say around 45cm for arguments sake, but must also go in a corner location so can't be any wider than 70cm.

The Equinox Hi-Fi or XL Pro look possible but when you factor in the need to place my AV Receiver, DVD player, CD, Humax PVR and the KEF centre all in the rack then the TV screen is going to be way too high. I'm also going to end up with the TV and centre speaker on the same shelf on the top which kind of defeats the exercise i suspect?

Anyone seen a better option space wise recently that would be deep enough to house an Onk and fit in the corner of a room?

I've used the Atacama rack with the Onkyo receiver and didn't have a problem. However, there's only a small gap between the top of the receiver and the shelf above, and the shelf can get quite warm. Not a major problem, but worth noting...
