The folks at The Cable Company should be able to help you. I've dealt with them a few times and found them very well informed.

I just completed a cross-country move myself and at that time I took the opportunity to upgrade my overall system in several ways - one of which was to improve my speaker stands and my audio component racks. I utilized "Audio Vibration Control" for both the speaker stands and the component racks. I worked with Dan Colnon there to do a customized set of both. I found the level of fit and finish to be excellent.

I'll save you the call.

They'll say it's an excellent product, and the next model(s) up the range are proportionately better.

DIY doesn't have to be difficult. With 8020.net, you speak to an advisor, pick your 80/20 T-slot aluminum, give them your hand drawings/measurements, and they will cut your aluminum pieces for you to assemble. It is like legos for adults. Can be as complex or simple as you want it. I then purchased some off-the-shelf Boos maple blocks that I floated in the aluminum as platforms. Viola - instant audio component rack that is infinitely adjustable for component height, expandable as you go, and less than 1/2 the cost of commercial ones (at least back in the day). The T-slot aluminum already has channels if you want to add lead shot, etc.
