I originally bought this to house my AVID (Euphonix) Artist Mix series controllers and it still does. It has also become the foundation for my whole control room. Extremely high quality and amazing looking. Most people just say "Oh" and pause for awhile before making a Star Trek or mad scientist reference. It weighs about 200lbs but comes reasonably packaged when shipped. The only problem is the shelf doesn't have enough clearance for a Kensington trackball or a modern keyboard controller that's higher than about 2.5 inches. I had to jury-rig it to get it to be around 3". Aside form that it is super hight quality. I've had mine about 6 or 7 years and it looks brand new.
