    Default Ikea Kallax etc

    Anyone know for sure if these box systems fit 12" records ok. Is there any others around same price that are worth consideration. I wanted to have some of my music out for playing as I struggle to get them out of the boxes they are in at moment any info gratefully received

    Grant,

    I have just checked. We have both Expedits and Kallexs at home. The internal dimensions are near damn identical - LPs and box sets will fit in fine.

    Yep, they are the perfect size for LP's (it's Kallax btw). I've got 2 of the 8 square ones (well 1 of those is the older Expedit, but they are the same size internally). Don't think there is any alternative at this price point.

    Thanks Charlie and Simon... yes I noticed I mis spelt doh!! Ok I wasnt sure as they dont give internal dimensions. A single 4 or 6 will do me I think. I have limited room and need them at a decent height as I cant get down too low now. Currently in the ali boxes Ive always kept them in.. great stuff, at least i know they will fit.

    The kallax is perfectly sized for records. The need to be braced in my opinion. I had one for a while, and it didn't feel sturdy enough to trust my albums with. I braced it, and it worked fine. I ended up replacing it with shelves I built myself that fit the walls perfectly. There are plenty of other options, but they are a lot more expensive.

    Amazon sells some double cube ones that aren't very expensive, that seem more stable. I have some stacked two high, that make a good base for setting some gear on too.
