If you're an audiophile with a large music library, imagine how great it would be to have a CD storage system that integrated the look-up ease of a card catalogue with the browse-ability of the stacks.
The Porcupine CD Rack might be the one. Each prickly rack is designed to be mounted on the wall, which means your collection is always visible and accessible, and oriented horizontally for easy scanning of titles. And since it houses a whole lotta CDs (27) in that small wallprint, it delivers all this usability without dominating a room.
We're envisioning a neat row of these 15 5/8" satin anodized aluminum shelves integrated into a media center, at browsing level.
Custom-hardware specialist David Mockett in Torrance, CA. is the designer and manufacturer of the Porcupine and they seem to be running low on them, so if you like the idea, jump on it right away.
