Storing LP's/Laserdiscs

So since Ph0t0Fuk|t is holding everyones pictures hostage, and the Vanilla search function isn't super useful, what are folks using thats fairly inexpensive to store their LP's?

I have probably one carton OR LESS of LP's and Laserdiscs and dont plan to add to this list much, but want to store it right.

Any suggestions welcome. Likely wont be something I keep out visible either, so it doesn't HAVE to be pretty, but it does add bonus points :smile:

    Dan, you know the rules...you must list an asking price :p :D :D

    I use some storage bins I found at Target. I don't have many LP's, so I only have a couple. I can't seem to find them online now, but if I come across them I'll post the link.

    Here's the one's I use. Kind of a "leather" milk crate. Works well and looks pretty good.

    This thread inspired me to spin the black circle today. First time since moving into this house a little over a year ago. I think (hope) I'll be listening a little more frequently than once a year as it sounded really good.

    I need to get my TT worked on as its not spinning right.... Once I get my TV wallmounted I plan to leave enough space between the TV and rack for the TT to go on when I use it every once in a while.

    My new setup doesnt allow it to stay out 24/7 which is fine because I have a VERY LIMITED collection, and I'm ok w that. Its the Nostalgia that I enjoy.... just like my Laserdisc players hehehe......

    Yes....I'm debating on putting back on over the section which holds my amp on one shelf and a bunch of untidy stuff underneath. The back of this section is completely open and the sides have that black screen material option Salamander sells

    So as I sold one salamander rack cause it was too big... I found ANOTHER ONE that was JUST RIGHT.....

    And initially in that my wife wanted to store these:

    Well I said "F THAT" and said we will find somewhere for those. That space is for THIS

    kq4ivbvdslb1.jpg

    And problem solved.... for now at least.... I have a couple more display pieces I want to put in the rack that will kick the LP's out (namely 2 laserdisc players and 2 vintage Stereo Recievers)

    I almost picked up one of those APS units for $20 the other day. Lady had two and would let them go for $40 total. Damn BTS shopping killed my budget.

    Enders, is that an Anthem AVR?

    Other; SDA2BTL's, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    It sure is... it's my old MRX-500. GREAT AVR. If the HDMI out didn't fail on me, it would still be pulling weight in my HT... I'm glad Dan's putting it to good use!

    Where? And why didnt you man, 40 bucks for 2 of those is nothing.......

    If I didn't have a whole home surge protector I'd still be looking for another one (and because I'm OCD I may still) for my bedroom.

    The APC H10, H15, and Belkin PF30 and PF60 are great models. Also the Tripplite LCR2400.

    Furman and Panamax also make good units but they tend to be pricey and hold their value more...

    Local FB buy/sell groups. I had the cash but after paying off a whole credit card and making double payments on the others I wasn't left with much. I then remembered school starts soon and despite how much I pay in child support I still make sure to take care of clothes. After clothes, back pack, supplies (double supplies as I donated to charity) and shoes I was dead broke.


    Bet you she still has them though, might push my luck in a week.
