The Sanus NFAV230 provides a sophisticated home for your audio/video system. Durable tempered glass shelves with smooth, polished edges support your equipment. The sturdy frame consists of solid, grade-A hardwood with graphite-finished steel cross-braces for visual accent.

The stand's wire management system keeps cables out of sight for a clean, uncluttered appearance. The oversized top shelf is specifically designed for a TV, and its sides are angled toward the rear to allow the stand to fit in a corner.

Well designed, well made, easy to assemble and looks great. Sets off my stereo components.

High design meets high function

Written by: Downing from Portland, OR on May 9, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a stand that would fit in the corner, hold four components and do a reasonably good job of hiding the cables. This was a perfect fit. My only knock, and it's a small one, is that the plastic piece that's supposed to attach to the back to hide the cables doesn't function very well. Like the other reviewer, I just tossed it. Be warned that the top shelf is not attached, when only becomes an issue if you try to move the stand, which shouldn't be very often. The four shelves are more than big and strong enough to hold my components: a Panamax M4300-PM Conditioner/Surge Protector on the bottom shelf, a Samsung Blu-Ray player on the next shelf, a DirecTV DVR on the next shelf and a Bose TV controller on the top shelf. All in all, this stand is a nice looking piece of furniture that does what it was designed to do very well.

Pros: Looks good, well designed, functions well

Cons: Back plastic piece meant to hide the cables doesn't work well

Well designed, well made, easy to assemble and looks great. Sets off my stereo components.

Pros: Well made, easy to assemble. Looks great.

Very happy with purchase

Written by: Dan from Latham, NY on March 19, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus NFAV230 was purchase as a TV stand for us. It arrived very quickly after the order was placed. We have a 42" TV and a limited corner space for a TV stand. This 30" product fit perfectly and holds our TV very well with room to spare on the top shelf. It is well constructed and exactly as pictured on the website. The back panel holds our few wires perfectly. The front wood section came broken and we just called customer service and a new section was received in a few days. Very easy to assemble. Very happy with the purchase.

Pros: Solid wood and glass construction. Easy to assemble

Cons:

Sanus Media stand

Written by: Stereo System in Living room from philadelphia, PA on February 18, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This media stand is classy, sturdy and very easy to put together. It holds an Audio Technica Turntable, Yamaha receiver and a TEAC CD player. I have detected no shaking or vibrations at all when I walk past or up to it. It is very sleek and attractive and I am thrilled with this choice.

Pros: Easy to put together, 4 spacious shelves, speedy delivery from Crutchfield!

Cons: None

Great product!

Written by: Marshall from Florida on February 7, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great. Easy to assemble. Put my turntable on the top shelf. Works great.

Pros: Sleek. Sturdy. Modern.

Cons: It would be great if the shelves were adjustable.

Beautiful piece of furniture

Written by: Nancy from plaistow, NH on January 25, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was a little leery purchasing furniture without being able to see it first, but this exceeded my expectations. It looks great and is perfect for holding my stereo components. I purchased the mocha color and it compliments my furniture beautifully. It does a good job of hiding the cables from view.

Pros: Quality, style, functionality

Cons: none

Great piece of furniture for stereo

Written by: Mike from Texas on January 18, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was really looking for something enclosed with a door for my second stereo, but none of them really fit the bill so I chose this one and am glad I did. It looks great in our formal living room / game room. The finish matches my speakers and, as a bonus, the doors of the dart board. Relatively easy assembly; only had one part that I had trouble fitting but I think that was mostly my fault. I'm very satisfied with this.

Pros: Looks, stability. Appear very durable.

Cons:

very nice stand

Written by: Utepp10 from Florida on October 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus NFAV230 stand is perfect for my setup. The mocha color matches my new hardwood floors perfectly. My components fit perfectly on the shelves. I feared my A/V receivier wouldn't fit, but it fits the bottom shelf perfectly. Great looking stand.

Cons:

Sanus stands are a good buy

Written by: Chris B from Albany NY on September 2, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to put together and easily hide wires. Stands look good and are pretty well engineered. My speakers are on the heavy side and stand holds them fairly steady. Would not recommend them for a speaker heavier than the Polk RTiA3 s I have on them.

Pros: Easy assembly, neat look

Cons: Not for a real heavy speaker

Just what we wanted

Written by: SteveI from Petaluma, CA on December 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what we wanted. Was very easy to put together. I was a little worried about the cable run since others had previously said it was too small. I had no problems with five components' cables. Maybe they redesigned it? Couldn't be happier with this unit.

Pros: Easy of assembly. A really nice piece of furniture. My wife loves it so that says it all.

Cons: None

Crutchfield's Service is Great, Sanus....Not so much.

Written by: BWH from Kapaa, HI on April 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As usual, Crutchfield's service was excellent. However, I received the unit only to find it was missing 8 parts! And I don't mean hardware parts, major components. So I contacted SANUS, which in turn, sent out the parts by UPS ground.......to Hawaii. Seven days later, I was informed by UPS a train carrying my parts had derailed. So here I sit, waiting for $20 worth of parts to assemble a $3000 stereo. All SANUS needed to do was spend $4 more dollars to send the part 2nd day. I would have given SANUS five stars if they would have corrected their mistake in a timely manner.

Pros: Well built, solid wood construction and ease of assembly.

Cons: SANUS customer service........:(

Great but not perfect

Written by: EricG from Portland, OR on September 19, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Mostly quite happy with the quality of materials, ease of assembly, and overall appearance. It has one flaw that may be significant to some: the "interior cable channel" is just a piece of flexible plastic that bends into too-shallow channels into the wood frame. This plastic will take any excuse to pop out of its channels. After fussing with the plastic, I eventually discarded it and allowed the cables to fall as they may.

Pros: Looks great. Provides great function. Is made of quality materials.

Cons: The "interior cable channel" design is badly flawed.

Almost too small, but a perfect fit in the end

Written by: Anonymous from Loganville, GA on January 16, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We used this to replace our large entertainment center furniture. It holds our blu-ray, Dish, receiver, roku, and apple TV. It was almost too small for the Dish box, but there was just enough room. The Dish's antenna does have to be turned a little or it will hit the top of the next glass shelf. The quality is worth the price, and it was pretty easy to put together.

Pros: sturdy, attractive, and small footprint

Cons: shelf height could be a little higher to accomodate large devices.

Quality Product

Written by: Franc from Boston MA on June 26, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality of its workmanship and materials. Assembly was quick and easy. The one issue...a threadless nut...was quickly resolved by a call to the manufacturer's customer service department. Taking into consideration all of these factors, this is a great value.

Cons:

Great product and service

Written by: Steve K from Holland, MI on March 8, 2011

Crutchfield shipped on time. The product arrived with a small chip on the front piece. A call to Sanus customer service and they immediately sent a replacement! That is service worthy of repeat business. Thank you Sanus, thank you Crutchfield. It is a beautiful stand.also.

Nice Product

Written by: Adithya from Oakland Township, MI on March 1, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Did not receive the order the first time around despite the UPS tracker indicating the delivery was left on my porch. Called customer service and told them the product never arrived and got a polite service rep who apologized for the inconvenience and shipped a new order the next day. Received the stand today in good order. Assembly was simple and the product is a value for the price and looks great.

Sanus NFAV230 (Mocha)

Written by: SherryW from Las Cruces, NM on February 10, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my first Sanus system but it certainly won't be my last. It is a beautiful and elegant piece of furniture - the wood is lovely, the glass shelves are sturdy and very well made as is every item that is used on the piece. I bought it to hold my first 32 inch Sony LCD that is in the master bedroom and the stand blends beautifully with the furniture. The assembly was absolutely the easiest thing I've ever done and I've put together a lot of "pressed-wood" items together over the years. I want to compliment Crutchfield for having the instruction manuals available to download PRIOR to purchasing something like this. I am somewhat disabled physically and I wasn't sure I could actually put something like this together again, but after reading the assembly instructions BEFORE I purchased it, I was comfortable that I would be able to do so. It took all of 25 minutes to assemble and I was able to do it while sitting in a chair. A remarkable and easy assembly process and yet another reason why I'll be purchasing a similar Sanus piece for my audio system. As always, an excellent job by Crutchfield to provide high quality products from a variety of vendors as well as prompt delivery service.

Written by: TomG from Baltimore, MD on November 25, 2010

This is the second Sanus stand I have purchased from Crutchfield. The quality is excellent, it is easy to assemble and everyone comments on how good it looks. Although the Sanus products are very reasonably priced, they look as if they are very high end.

Best of the Best

Written by: Dennis from Fort Worth, TX on November 1, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus v230 is a piece of hardwood furniture and not some "pressed-board" whatever that falls apart should one drop of water touch it. I have a 42" LCD Toshiba sitting on top of my V230, a Bose Wave underneath, and a couple of other components to round out my "system." The V230 holds it all, perfectly and in a tight corner space for my apartment. Plus, it looks good, and fits any decor. Putting the unit together was a breeze! Less than 30-minutes (longer if you're slow, like me and spray cleaners, waxes, etc. on your new item). the box arrived with no damage of any kind, as does everything I order from Crutchfield.

Like Sterling On Silver

Written by: John from Chicago, Il. on February 16, 2009

Many years ago, we had our milk delivered by Wanzer's Dairy. Wanzers had an advertising slogan that " Wanzers on milk was like sterling on silver." The same can be said for the Sanus NFAV230 component rack. Sanus puts out a quality product made of real wood, not pressed wood chips. The NFAV230 comes in different wood finishes to match various room decors. I purchased one in Mocha to go with the dark walnut paneling in my bedroom. Its a classy looking piece of furniture. The one drawback to this unit is that the shelves are not adjustable. If you plan to put a receiver on any other than the top shelf be sure that your receiver is no more than 6 inches high. I found out the hard way. The Onkyo TX-SR 604 I was going to use didn't fit. There aren't many quality receivers that do fit. I wound up having to spend another $300.00 on the Yamaha HTR-6140, it fits nicely. But all in all, if your looking for a quality piece of furniture you can't go wrong with Sanus. And the assembly is easy! Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $$$$, stay away from the garbage that the big box retailer sells!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pros: Very well-made and sturdy, attractive design with nice finish, open for great ventilation, assembly could hardly be easier, snap-on cover to hide cabling, fits nicely into a corner, decent price considering quality. Cons: Open design not for those who want everything hidden, cable cover needs to be a little larger - tends to pop off if cables are too numerous or too bulky, shelves could be deeper - cables in center area tend to jam against rear support if equipment is deep. Served my needs well, in a small room, for a receiver, cable box, Blu-ray player, center speaker and 32" LCD.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I have just spent many internet hours looking for the ideal tv stand. Many hours, indeed. After discovering this item, I could finally call off the search! It has all the features that I was looking for: 30 inch height, not too wide since there will be speakers on matching stands on either side, clean looks and a price I can live with. Plus free shipping! Yay! [ William  Jun 30, 2016 ]

Still in the box but there's a Technical Drawing for it that can be found on Sanus' web [ Steven  Jun 10, 2015 ]
Hi Mike, The bottom shelf is 7", the other 2 are 6.5". It's a nice stand although cord management is tough if you have too many cords to fit in the tube. Still worth it. [ Christine  Jun 10, 2015 ]
4-1/2, 13, 20-1/2, 29-1/2 You lose some on the shelf heights of each because of the supporting bars. [ Tom  Jun 10, 2015 ]
i cannot measure them right now. But you need to look up to then TV rather than straight across. I really like them. For me, it was a good purchase. [ KENNETH A.  Jun 10, 2015 ]
