The rack came today, but I haven't had time to open the box yet so I
won't vouch for quality. However, my basic requirement was just "Hold
my gear up off the table" so I don't expect it to fail.
I also picked up an ART power conditioner for about $80. My studio's
in my basement, which a prior owner appears to have run electric
wiring in by hand, so better power protection is probably a good

One of the best racks you can build is simple and cheap, and it may be
perfect for most podcasters since it sits on any flat surface without
needing screws or mounts. (Plus it's any size you want it to be)
Buy a 2 space rack shelf. (You can get one for BSW for $25)
Then pick up a short pair of rack rail. (another $20)
Mount the rail on the shelf and add your equipment. What is cool with
this setup is that you have space underneath to put stuff. (CD's, mics,
Also, it is as big as you need it to be. two space, five space....
whatever. It stands up strait, (no leaning back) and it slides around
on the table easy for positioning.
Give it a try, I think you'll like it.
