Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Is pretty sturdy and hold my amp weight. If you have a heavy amp you will need it.

Great product, mates up perfectly with my existing rack. Sturdy and doesn't give way to weight load.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to go with the CFR 1620. It comes with 2 shelves (CASH21, CASH22). I added this which I have my big receiver on. This was very well built and since I added it to the bottom, it sits on the whole frame, front and back. It was probably overkill for my use, but very happy to have it. One point of concern, If I had used it higher in the shelf, it would just be held by 4 screws and rear suspended. I am sure the engineering that went into it makes it fine, and the build quality on the shelf and rack are both excellent. But why didn't they design it so it goes all the way to the back and transfers the weight down evenly over the 4 posts on the rack, as oppose to leaving all the forces on the 4 screws and the front 2 posts on the rack?

Order this for A/V Receivers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This supports 80lbs and is the deepest of the Sanus branded shelves. This will accommodate higher quality receivers that are heavier. Even though smaller shelves such as the CASH22 will support 50lbs, I would not recommend pushing the weight limit on shelves so getting the larger/stronger shelf such as this is a smart choice.

Pros: Big, strong, holds larger heavy receivers

Cons: None

Why did you buy this?

Sanus racks come with shelves that can hold up to 50 pounds of gear. This heavy duty shelf is rated at 80, which is good because my McIntosh Power Controller (MCP1500) and my Amp (MC207) both weigh 80+ :-) [ Adam  Aug 04, 2018 ]
Need to support 65lb McIntosh Integrated Amp [ Michael  Jun 09, 2018 ]
