Attractive design for advanced systems

Sanus designed their handsome Cadenza cabinets for the audiophile with a sense of style. The compartment doors of the Cadenza61 have interchangeable solid wood and perforated steel panels. The latter allow infrared signals from your remote to pass through. The cabinet top features a distinctive tempered glass panel that resists scratching. The cabinet can support a flat-panel TV with a screen size of up to 70" and weighing up to 150 lbs.

Two drawers provide storage for media and accessories, such as DVDs and remotes. Two side compartments have a total of four shelves for your larger components. A hidden rear compartment provides space for a power strip and other small devices, such as a router or cable box.

Great piece of furniture...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love this piece. The shipping container ensures that the furniture arrives in 100% perfect condition. And then the unit is so functional. Two hidden compartments in the back hide all the power supplies, wall warts, wires, power stripes, etc. And then all three back panels come off and on with strong magnets. Just a fantastic engineering job vs the crap at typical furniture shops. Cool retro look fit into our house nicely. I have the new Samsung 9500 4K TV from Crutchfield on top and it goes great with the legs and knobs.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: None

Stylish and Functional

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for a new AV cabinet that had drawers, and a spot for the center channel. Everything else that I saw looked too techie or boring. This Sanus cabinet is functional and chic. The walnut color is beautiful, nothing screams look at me, yet you can't help but notice the Euro/Modern yet retro style. This is a beautiful piece of furniture. I went to the Sanus North America's head office in Eden Prairie, MN and met the production manager who took the time to show me the cabinet. He explained the thought process that went into the design, and even how it is manufactured. This cabinet was designed with a lot of attention to detail for the home AV enthusiast. I love the flexibility of the internal rack system for the shelves, and how the doors are easily removed to gain access to the rack mounts. The drawer boxes are plywood and dove tail construction with soft close everything. The back of the cabinet has shelves for unsightly components such as the power bricks and DirecTV Swim power supplies. The back panels are thick not the thin hardboard of cheap furniture and are held on by magnets making access super easy. The ventilation throughout is excellent. My only wish is that it had wheels to make sliding it in and out easier. That said, the metal legs look retro cool. I have to say it again. This is a great looking cabinet. I think it compliments any room. I thought the walnut finish was much better looking than the black ash.

Pros: Stylish, fit and finish, rack system shelving, not too big, not too small, delivered ding free

Cons: No wheels
