85"-tall steel component rack with heavy-duty casters
Our take on the Sanus CFR144 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
If you have an advanced audio/video system, a home studio, or any type of setup with a lot of rack-mounted gear, then the Sanus CFR144 may just be the best place to store your components. The cabinet's sturdy casters make it easy to move, and its removable side and back panels give you easy access to your equipment.
Rack-mount or shelve your gear
The CFR144 can accommodate up to 44 rack-mounted components that are 1-3/4" high. It also has eight single- and triple-rack unit shelves for larger components. You also get single- and double-rack face plates, so you can fill in empty gaps between rack-mounted or shelved equipment for a cleaner look. And there's space behind the shelves to run connecting cables between your components.
The beefy CFR144 can support up to 1,000 lbs. of electronic gear. Welded heavy-gauge steel construction makes it durable and strong, and a locking tempered glass door gives you added security. Drop-down legs provide stable support, and they're adjustable, so you can ensure your gear stays level. Integrated vents along the edges and air holes in the back panel keep air circulating. If you have to keep the CFR144 in an enclosed space, or have several components that tend to run hot, you can also add a Sanus dual cooling fan kit.
