    Depends what you're looking for mate, and how tall you are.

    http://www.djdeckstands.com/ is a good place but I've heard they don't come exactly as they look on there.

    Also they're made of mdf so if you're at uni etc there's going to be trouble moving it around

    There are these shelves at ikea for about £30 which you can turn on their side. comfortabley sit decks and a mixer on top of them can't remember the product name but they're beige and have 8 spaces. Perfect for vinyl storage.

    Hope thats some help (y)

    If you have the knowledge and the time I'd definately recommend building your own custom one. Can make it fit anywhere, can get the height just right, can add on to later.. So much better then anything you could buy imo.

    But seriously man loads of threads on this. USE THE SEARCH ;)

    Peace

    Definately, sheet of MDF and some spare time, build a good stand exactly how you want it. I built one for about 20 - 30 quid. Bargain.

    I've always built my own. Spend a day or 2 getting the right design on paper. Start building.
    I'm building one at the moment. An L-Shaped one. Just started the frame. Bottom to go in next. I've got a nice polished granite top to go on & various shelving to hold equipment.

    If you just wanna by then try Sefour. They make good affordable deckstands.

    If you got £250 as a budget, and aint bothered about saving money, then i'd try the yellow pages for carpenters and shit cos you could get something sicko with made with that much cash (y) After thought you see...

    blatantly make your own at a fraction of the price.

    Got mine from DJ Deckstands and it was a right bodge job! I had to remove the clips on the back of my dex just they would fit in it and the instructions were terrible! Now thats good craftsmanship!
