Amazing value, get it while it lasts!

Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

There's not many specifics in the details page....I took a chance on this desk and glad I did. For anyone wondering like I was:

Dimensions:
Front Length: 59"
Rear Length: 47"
Depth: 30"
Height (first shelf): 26"
Height (top shelf): 37"

Brand is Sauder. In my experience their stuff for cheap self assembled furniture is well designed and is easy to put together, this desk is no exception. Assembled with a philips screwdriver and the included hex key in about an hour and only got one blister. Most of the assembly is straightforward, however a word of caution: when you get to the top shelf be careful with the threaded screws. They are the long bolt type that uses round twist anchors to secure it to the rest of the desk. I actually screwed them in by hand and still managed to poke through the top making a bit of a bubble that is now hidden by my right monitor. Not a concern but worth noting.

Compared to other Sauder veneer furniture, this has a very durable purpose built feel, feels like plastic coating and like it should hold up well for years.

Only other issue as others have noted, the rack screws don't always line up. In the case of mine, most are too close together, but I still managed to fit everything in with at least two or three screws each. For the price it's really not a deal breaker in my opinion. Overall amazed with this desk, it looks great and is all the space I need. Shelf height is not too high for my display and my speakers are perfect listening height and distance.

Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

Really cleaned up our home studio. If you are installing rack components leave those panels a bit loose until the equipment is in, holes don't line up perfectly when tight.

    Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

    I bought this to upgrade my home studio from the smaller computer desk I had since I ordered some new hardware for my studio. I was looking for something with rack space and at first was looking at a different desk that was more expensive. I ended up finding this one on sale here at Musician's Friend and decided to take the chance on it and I'm glad I did. This desk was worth every penny. Nothing cheap about this desk. Very solid wood and metal, no plastic pieces anywhere. Even the wheel casters are metal. Just enough rack space to fit everything I needed and still have space for on more thing if I need it. I would definitely recommend this product!

    I'm much more productive now

    Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

    After using a "standard" computer desk with a rack next to it for years, I finally broke down and got a proper studio desk. Having my patch panels, interfaces and outboard gear right in front of me has made me so much more productive. No more rolling over to make cable adjustments and then rolling back to start the next take. And, to top it off, my speakers are now at the proper height and sound a ton better!

    Very good basic music production station

    By Wave6dog

    from Wausau, WI

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Cord organizer is a nice feature
    • Easy to assemble
    • Love that it has lockable casters
    • Very good riser height for monitors

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

        The height of the riser is just a tad high for my liking when it comes to setting my 23" monitor. That probably has to do with my 58 year old eyes and my no-line bifocals. I really like the built-in 19" rack system. It really organizes my DAW and outboard gear nicely.

        Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

        Great home studio desk. Lots of work space, plenty of room for guitar setup. Unit sets a little low but would be just right if you are using a synth or keyboard. Easy assembly and included rack screws.

        Good value

        By Mikey P

        from Pittsburgh, PA

        Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

        if you are on a tight budget, then this is the rack for you. It all arrived in one
        box, pieces all there and it was a very easy set up. Just make sure when putting on the top deck not to let the lock nut poke through the top. One of mine wasn't exactly inserted all the way so I used a rubber mallet to let it know whose boss, however doing that made a bubble on top. Small bubble and I put my monitor over it so no harm, no foul. I really like this unit because it was cheap, easy to set up, and gave my workspace much needed room to create. Do not be afraid of the price, it's a winner. After spending a a lot of cash on an all new setup (iMac, focusrite, Komplete s61 and Komplete 11, 32 gig ram) there was little left in the pot of gold. This was a blessing because I thought I would have to spend 600 or more for a decent workstation. Thank you MF and Studio RTA.

        Better than Expected

        By Duane H.

        from N. FL

        Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

        I,ve had this since March of 2005, and it,s still holding up strong. And, has plenty of pounds worth of highend gear on it as well. Rock solid. Like it alot. Never thought it would,ve lasted this long and I,ve moved it several times. I,ve got 6 inch monitors on mine, I wouldn,t put 8 inch ones on this, that might be a bit too much weight. Good Product.

        Perfect desk for home studio

        By kray

        from USA

        Comments about Studio RTA Work Station:

        I bought this desk many years ago from MF and I am glad to see they are selling it again.

        This desk is sturdy and can handle being disassembled and reassembled multiple times. I have moved the desk to three different spaces over the years and haven't had any issues.

        I have a home studio and use the racks for my two power supplies and two channel strips. The top shelf is where my speakers sit using the speakers isolation foam to angle them down towards my seated position. The monitor is also on the top shelf. The monitor, when attached to its original stand, is too high to view comfortably, so I bought an adjustable monitor stand so I could move the monitor down where the bottom of the monitor is almost touching the shelf. On the desk itself I have my interface, laptop, USB hub, external hard drives, surface controller, and a mini midi keyboard. On the bottom platform I store my mics and cables.

        This desk is very easy to put together, bottom platform, casters, legs, desk top, shelf supports, shelf, done! The desk top and bottom platform are big and heavy, you may need help moving them.

        This desk is perfect for my home studio, with enough rack space and enough desk space for all of my equipment.

                  This is now my music studio desk which holds my desktop computer, monitor, printer, speakers, mixer and battery ups. The instructions were clear and all the components assembled as shown. This desk is heavy and very sturdy but the wheels make it easy to move once assembled. Plenty of work area and looks great!

                  Thanks to another reviewer who posted the actual dimensions for this desk, I realized it would hold my Alesis QS8 perfectly. Super sturdy, simple to assemble and the perfect desk for a workstation that doesn't involve other table top gear if you go the full size controller route.
