    This shows a monolith amp in the photo but says it only supports 75lbs per shelf? Is the bottom shelve the same as the amp stand that says it supports 150 lbs? Or can the amp stand be used as a fifth (bottom) shelve?

    BEST ANSWER: The amp stand can be used as the bottom shelf. I called Monoprice and they said no, but they looked like the exact same design so I bought both and they connected no problem.
    This has the same exact dimensions and looks exactly like the shelves on the 4-teir audio stand. What makes this capable of holding 150lbs opposed to 75lbs?

    BEST ANSWER: This is only holding one component, where the 4 tier shelf will be holding several components.
    What are the interior space dimensions? Outside dimensions do not provide info for determining if our audio componenets will fit within the confines of the legs on each shelf.

    are there other options for the feet? i have a wood floor and the spiked feet would not be good
    kurt g on Sep 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I just received and built the product. You install plastic bumpers onto the bottom legs. Those plastic bumpers are threaded for the metal spikes. If you don't use the metal spikes, the shelf just sits on the plastic bumper. The main downside is that my shelf is slightly uneven and I need the spikes to compensate for the leveling.
    Can this shelf be shortened to accommodate a 24" height restriction? As in, could I remove a middle shelf and riser set and meet my height requirement?
    A shopper on Sep 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can exclude one of the shelves to make it shorter.
    what is the size of the screw threads for casters?

    How about stacking one on the other?
    A shopper on Sep 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Could be done. The Amp Stand and this stacked no problem. If you bought two of these you could assemble however many of the 8 shelves you needed, though if you went with 8 it wouldn't be very sturdy and would need to be secured in some manner. I've proposed to Monoprice that they create an option allowing for the purchase of 4+ tiers (however many fit your needs) so that way you don't have spare hardware lying around if you only needed 6 tiers, for example. Also, along with this being able to buy the longer posts would be awesome. This stand wasn't able to accommodate my processor or amp so I had to cut some spacers from wooden dowels to increase the clearance for these pieces.
    Is it possible to leave a SHELF out (not remove the legs) and have a 14"+ opening to store records?
    Paul B on May 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Its possible but couldn't promise that it wouldn't look a bit weird or wobble a bit. The pipes are hollow so they kind of need something solid to sit on. You might be able to solve that with a large washer in between since they don't have much of a surface that can sit on one another.
    Can two of them be combined to make a taller (5 or 6) shelf unit?
    Liam S on Mar 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, a 2nd unit can be used to add a shelf or replace a shorter shelf with taller. (each kit has one shelf a couple inches taller than others). I tried 5 shelves, with 2 taller shelves and it was too tall for me, went back to 4 shorter height plus 1 taller shelf. Still stable with an extra shelf. I made a second unit with remaining 2 shelves.
    What is the maximum total weight a fully built stand can hold?
    A shopper on Apr 12, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I put the Monolith Stereo Rack/Stand together in less than 45 minutes, with NO Tools. The Rack is made Very well with powder-coated steel tubes, which are connected together with relatively large diameter threaded (at each end), solid steel pins. These in turn also connect to each shelf with a washer like plastic/polymer pad. These pads act as shock absorbers and reduce any noise or squeaks, if you will. The black shelves are well-made and I would assume that the stereo rack could hold approximately 175 pounds. It passes the "Bump Test" and does not sway back and forth. Great Product for the 4 large Stereo pieces I have on it.!!
    Can this be used in a carpeted bedroom to hold Altice One cable box, PS4, ADT home security keypad and landline phone?
    Ernest S on Aug 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it can.
    Can mont this with just 2 shelf and put Monolith 7 ont top shelf ?
    Carl T on Apr 5, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, you could.
    What is the thickness of the wood shelves?
    A shopper on Nov 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It's in the description... 0.6" per shelf. They're not wood... It's like a high density particles board that's wrapped with a thick, durable vinyl coating. It looks and feels nice, but nowhere near as rigid as solid wood
    Would it be possible to add casters to the bottom of the legs?

    Nice design, decent quality, high value
    Design - it's simple, understated and functional. It's completely modular, so you can use between 1-4 shelves. They are spaced well and can fit even some of the largest dedicated amplifiers (although weight might be the limiting factor). The biggest design characteristic is a slight curve on the face of the shelf. On Monoprice's photos, the make the AV components facing out with the curve for aesthetic appeal, but I actually flip it around and feed my cables through this curve and push the stand flush against the wall. To each their own...

    Build Quality - the stand is made in Taiwan which, although imported, is still a step up from being made in "China". The shelves are made up up a relatively high-density particle board and wrapped in what appears to be a thick, durable vinyl wrapping. Fortunately, the wrapping is entirely seamless and You can't even tell how it was applied. I wouldn't expect any peeling of the surface material. It's a smooth, textured feel that cleans easily. The legs are individual metal poles (12 of them with one shelf having a taller height) that appear to be strong enough to hold the purported 300 lbs of total weight. It comes with 12 silicone dampeners that you install under each shelf (except for the top shelf) which is supposed to help with the acoustic dampening. It would have been nice to include an extra four dampeners so that I could isolate the top shelf as well since I'll be putting components on the top shelf as well. Once put together, the shelf, it feels pretty solid and is much heavier than I expected (compared to what you might get from IKEA). It's not flawless, though, as I noticed that there was a slight rocking due to unleveled legs. This can be resolved through the included carpet spikes that can adjust and compensate for leveling. Note that this DOES NOT come with carpet spike disks to protect your hardwood floors. You can refrain from installing the carpel spikes, but in my case, that means that I have an unleveled AV stand. My only other complaint is that the screw caps on the top shelf shelf look VERY cheap. They're semi-gloss plastic which highlights the imperfections on it (scratches, dents, swirls, etc.) This is very obvious as it sits on the top shelf and is about the only thing you see when you look down.

    Weight Support - Based on my assembling of the shelf, it appears that the weight of each shelf is being supported primarily by the threads of a 2-way threaded screw and the thin metal exterior of the pole. Split four ways for each post and the thread of each screw is supporting about 20 lbs (up to 75 lbs plus the weight of the shelf). This seems reasonable, and inf act, I would estimate that it could probably hold a bit more. However, the limiting factor would probably be the shelf rather than the supporting legs. After putting together the first shelf, I applied about 100 lbs of pressure and could see the shelf flex. For the dozens of you wondering whether this can support the 94 lb Monolith 7 amplifier, I would be hesitant, but what I might do is fabricate a center support out of a solid block of wood (maybe a 4x6) and place it under the first shelf for additional center support. This would undoubtedly provide the necessary support for a Monolith 7 amplifier.

    Value Proposition - I got this on sale with free shipping, and at the price, it's commensurate with what you would expect. For the price, you're getting modular metal posts holding up wrapped particle board shelves - all made in Taiwan (NOT China). But put this up against the $300-$1000+ you'd be paying for a name-brand AV stand at Magnolia or other custom fabricators and the value is through the roof. You can't pick anything up from IKEA or other big box retailers that provides the same level of quality as this shelf. I would recommend this for the entry-level audiophile who wants something that looks good and is functional.

    Recommendations to Monoprice - include a 5th pole support on the bottom shelf to increase holding capacity so it can support your wildly popular Monolith 7 Amplifier. All you need is another 25 lbs of support which can be accomplished with a 5th post that is threaded 3/4 of the way through the bottom shelf. I would also include an extra set of 4 silicone dampeners for the top shelf. Lastly, I would do something about the top shelf plastic screw caps. They look VERY cheap and take away from the overall quality and feel of the stand. You could make them textured to match the MDF shelves, or mirror the high quality caps used on the dedicated Amplifier stand. I would gladly pay an extra $10-15 for these upgrades.

    Very good and simple gear stand
    Like the looks, don't like that you can't customize how many shelves you want. This stand WILL connect to the Monolith amp stand if you need more tiers as they're the same design, so there's that, but being able to buy the hardware and extra shelves would be great for expanding gear needs.

    I used the amp stand as the bottom shelf for my 130lb amp.

    Otherwise, very happy with the stand. Good design overall, great price.

    Simple and Sturdy -- I added wheels
    Very sturdy and well built. The gaskets between the support posts prevent vibrations and loosening over time.

    I added 2 inch clear polyurethane wheels from Harbor Freight (Item#69536 / $3.50 each) that screwed right into the bottom posts. I store mine in a cabinet under my basement stair, so this allows me to pull the unit out easily. Raised the height by an inch. Wheels support 150lb each for a total of 600 lbs.

    The wheels made it even better for my purpose.
