Strength:

Beautiful design, solid steel construction, easy to assemble, great customer support

Weakness:

The glass is a bit thin, which translates to a weight threshold of only 50lbs. That's good enough for most consumer components; however, if you're an audiophile then you understand that most components, if stacked are way beyond that weight.

There is no doubt that Bello' makes some of the most attractive pieces of audio/video furniture, with excellent craftsmanship and extremely meticulous with it's curves. For the average person, all of their racks, depending on the style you like will do the job for you, but once you hit the audiophile components, you'll soon realize that the structure support of the glass shelves just won't cut it. When you've hit this ceiling, turn to Billy Bags. Even though Billy Bags racks aren't as attractive (however, some are extremely eye catching), their racks are much sturdier in almost every sense. From beam support to the support of each shelves is just what the higher end audiophile is seeking for. So depending on which category you're in, choose accordingly. When I first saw the Bello' AR716 at an audio show, I instantly fell in love and bought one a few months later. If you're planning to purchase an highly modern and sturdy rack (remember, each shelve can only support 50lbs.), I would highly recommend this piece for you. It is a bit pricey, but shopping around, you'll find a good deal.

This is the ultimate audio rack. It looks great, black iron construction with glass shelves (very sturdy). The cable management system works great. But one of the best parts is the customer service. I bought my Bell Oggetti as a close-out at Fry's with a few missing rubber stoppers. I call Bell Oggetti for the rubber stoppers and they were in my hands the next day, no charge. Great Product
