Our take on the Sanus Cadenza53

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

The Sanus Cadenza53 is a component rack system that not only does the job, but looks so handsome it can easily fit into virtually any décor. The rack features a tempered glass top and real wood shelves. The top door is solid wood. The bottom has interchangeable solid wood and mesh panels. The latter lets commands from your remote pass through without interference. And the hinges can be mounted on either side, so you can choose to have the doors open either to right or left.

Rack-mount or shelve your gear

The Cadenza53 can accommodate up to twenty-six 1-3/4"-tall rack-mounted components, eleven in the bottom compartment, and fifteen in the upper. Or simply stack your components directly on the shelves. The top compartment has two adjustable shelves, and the bottom has a single adjustable shelf, increasing your storage options. Space behind the shelves lets you run connecting cables between components. The back panels are magnetically attached for easy access.

Ventilation to keep components cool

Integrated vents along the edges and air holes in the back panel keep air circulating. Brushed metal legs provide stable support, and you can make small adjustments to them to ensure your gear stays level.

Compatible with Sanus EcoSystem™ rack mount accessories.

Features

Cadenza Series AV Rack: The Sanus Cadenza53 Cadenza Series 26RU AV rack brings together the function of an AV rack with the beautiful style and design of an elegant AV cabinet. The unit can house up to 26RU of equipment (11RU in bottom/15RU in top), yet still features wood shelves. Magnetic black panels snap into place for easy access to components within the rack. Smooth operating self-closing hardware will provide years of trouble-free operation.

Note: Available in a Natural Wood or Charcoal finish.

Interchangeable Top/Bottom Doors: The Sanus Cadenza53 features a solid top door and screen-vented bottom door. The doors are interchangeable, so you can have the solid door at the bottom and the screen-vented door at the top.

5 Shelves: Behind the two doors are 5 wooden shelves. There are 3 adjustable shelves and two fixed shelves. Each shelf can hold up to 40 lbs. The fixed middle shelf measures 19.5 (w) x 23.0" (d), the three adjustable shelves measure 17.4375" (w) x 18" (d), and the fixed bottom shelf measures 19" (w) x 19" (d).

Glass Top: The Sanus AV cabinet is made mostly of wood, but features a glass top which must be installed.

Adjustable Feet: The Sanus Cadenza53 AV cabinet comes mostly pre-assembled with the exception of the adjustable feet. The four adjustable feet help level the AV cabinet on your hardwood, tile, or carpet floors.
