I was reading a review of a 2k+ audio rack and the reviewer commented that racks can set you back as much as $10k which I guess means the $2k+ rack is a pretty good deal. Not for me. Things that actually produce the sound, like speakers, amps, CDPs and turntables I accept the steep prices, but a rack is just...well, a rack.
I don't have any problem with these products being offered, I just would not buy a $10k rack ever and I think my absolute limit would be around $1k and I'd have to really, really love the rack to pay anywhere near that. My current rack I purchased for less than $150 at amazon with free shipping and I've had many people ask me where they can get one.
