Introduction

When you get that piece of upgraded equipment you’ve always wanted there’s typically that follow-up feeling of “man that makes my old furniture look really bad!” StudioTech is no stranger to Audioholics, and we were able to take a closer look at their DP-2 line of AV component racks. This stand works well in a corner, but also looks great when placed against a flat wall. When we took a quick peek at the specs it surprised us in that it seemed to be very “roomy” for equipment but maintained a low profile that didn’t dominate the room.
