CD rack dimensions can be quite diverse, so you need to be familiar with some of the sizes before you buy one. Their designs also differ, which can also determine what they can hold. Some CD racks for instance, can’t hold double CDs.
Examples of CD Rack Sizes
The E15 Slab CD rack is 170 mm wide, 90 mm deep and 2200 mm high. There are 90 slots, good enough to hold 90 CDs. It has an inset eyelet so the rack can be set against a wall and fastened with a wall hook.
The E15 Slab CD rack comes in either European walnut or European oak (both oiled). The Tonelli Elianto Mirror CD rack dimensions are 1700 mm x 190 mm x 190 mm (H x W x D). The rack can hold up to 87 CDs. The base is chrome plated.
The Atlantic DOM45C58 45 CD / 21 DVD rack measures 17 x 5.2 x 8.5 inches. The CD rack can be oriented vertically or horizontally. This allows the unit to take advantage of whatever space is available. The Atlantic DOM45C58 has spring lock connectors, allowing for full customization.
The Prepac Black Slim Barrister Media Storage Rack is 19.25 inches wide, 63.75 inches high and 9.5 inches deep. The rack is fitted with a narrow base so units can be set adjacent to it.
Besides the CD rack dimensions, there are other things you need to consider. If the product is to be shipped, make sure the company will get you a replacement. Reading some online reviews may help determine which manufacturers can be trusted in this regard.
Also think of the cost down the road. You may settle for a smaller rack, but if your CD or DVD collection increases, you’ll end up buying another one. In most cases, getting one large rack is cheaper than buying a couple of smaller racks.
At the same time, you have to balance the need for a large CD rack with the space available in your home. A casual CD collector will do just fine with a 50 to 100 CD rack. If your CDs run into the several hundreds (or getting there), large CD rack dimensions are necessary.
Tips and Warnings
Almost all CD racks have to be assembled. Always follow the instructions as indicated in the package. A lot of the problems stem from the fact that some buyers don’t go through the manual / user guide. All the major manufacturers label the pieces to make assembly easier. If the instructions are followed, the process won’t take long.
CD collections can be organized in many ways: by genre, year, alphabetical order etc. Choose the one that is most convenient for you.
After you arrange the CDs, do your best to keep the arrangement intact. If you have several CDs, placing them in order may seem like a lot of work regardless of the CD rack dimensions. You must keep them in order. It’s the only way to help you look for a particular CD.
