If you have a large, multi-component audio/video system, you know storage can be a problem. The brawny Sanus CFR2136 is a great solution. It can handle a whole-house system and then some. And it has enough space within the cabinet to run your cables.

Sturdy casters make it easy to move, and each shelf is backstopped so your components sit securely during repositioning. Quick-release removable side and back panels give you access to your components.

Rack-mount or shelve your gear

The CFR2136 can accommodate up to 36 rack-mounted components that are 1-3/4" high. Or you can use the included shelving to store up to eighteen larger components. You also get rack face plates, so you can fill in empty gaps between rack-mounted of shelved components for a cleaner look.

Easy cable connections

Space behind the shelves lets you run connecting cables between your components. And a three-rack panel that can be attached to either the top or the bottom of the rack's rear gives you options for running cables out of the cabinet.

Industrial-strength construction

The beefy CFR2115 can support up to 500 lbs. of electronic gear. Welded heavy-gauge steel construction makes it durable and strong, and a locking tempered glass door gives you added security. Drop-down legs provide stable support, and they're adjustable, so you can ensure your gear stays level.

Ventilation to keep components cool

Integrated vents along the edges and air holes in the back panel keep air circulating. The cabinet also features cooling shelves on both the top and bottom of the rack for improved airflow. In addition, every shelf also has ventilation slots to help keep the temperature down. .

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have had the rack for a month, getting it filled up. Very sturdy. Love the included shelves, that made it more economical than competing products. All machines parts are high quality.

Pros: Value for money, Sturdy.

Cons: 2 small dents via shipping but I did not consider them bad enough to send back.
