This is not designed specifically for audio components....it's a bedside table. However, having seen it in person, it is quite sturdy. There's about 17 1/4 inches in width between the 2 sides, so most full size components with fit. It's available in a number of colors that're not even listed on the webpage. I picked the "black brown" color, which is a lot closer to black than brown. I plan on putting my turntable on top, with a CD player and integrated amp below.

It's called the Corras and it's US$29.99/each (US$19.99 if in white).

Know what the rest of the usable dimensions are on that? Walmart has a pretty attractive black and chrome audio rack for like $70 but it was too small for my equipment. I ended up getting a pair of Sanus racks because they were one of the only racks I could find that would actually fit Sony Megadisc changers due to the large depth (like 20 inches!!) and no middle column.

Just measured it to be 17.5" wide x 17.5" long x 15.5" deep.
Length wise is adjustable (middle rack). The 17.5" measurement was by removing the middle rack. The way I have it set up gives about 8.25" length to the top shelf and 8.75" to the bottom. Hope that helps.

The basic dimensions of the Corras rack is contained in the link in the initial post.

Width: 20 1/2"
Depth: 15 3/4"
Height: 22 7/8"

The inside width is about 17 1/4", which should fit my Cambridge Audio A500 integrated amp and Sony DVP-NS500P SACD/DVD player (both at 17" wide). The middle shelf is adjustable.

I have a couple of the Corras bedside tables as well (in birch - light wood), one is my bedside table/headphone rig rack, and the other serves to hold sheet music by my piano. For the price it's quite nice, and I like having it on castors so I can move it closer to the desk when I'm at the computer, and then back to the bed when I'm reading.

My Sony SCD-CE775 fits perfectly on the shelf - just a little gap on either side and front to back, and with a second shelf right on top looks like it was custom fit for that spot.

I use the Corras myself. You can see it in this pic minus the wheels. They are extremely sturdy and work very well for audio components.

Wow!! I was thinking I actually had an inexpensive component no one has found.

I just finished assembling my black-brown Corras. Very easy to assemble....couple of screwdrivers are really all you need, although I recommend a power screwdriver/drill would be handy if you are putting on the wheels.

My Cambridge Audio A500 goes in perfectly. The top will be occupied by my Technics SL-BD20 turntable. Damn!! Need phono pre-amp now

If your component is 17 inches wide or less, the Corras would be a great inexpensive audio rack. Make sure your component doesn't have vents on the sides though.

IKEA's website says this item is "only available in our stores" -- did you people all go and pick yours up? I don't think there's an IKEA anywhere near me. Also, I didn't see the "black brown" color anywhere.
