Overview: The BDI NOVIA CORNER (8421) is engineered to make the most use of corner space with a minimal footprint. The cabinet's IR-friendly glass doors conceal generous accommodations for a stack of components as well as compartments for DVD/CD storage and/or gaming stations. The top compartment has a flip-down door with easy access to a multi-function compartment for additional components, media or a center channel speaker.

TV Shelf: The BDI Novia 8421 features a tempered glass top TV shelf which is able to accommodate up to 50" flat panel television up to 150 lbs. The stand's top TV shelf measures 45" wide x 22" deep and places the television 31" from the floor.

Flip-Down Door Compartment: The Novia 8421 features a flip-down door compartment under the stand's TV shelf which can be used to house a center-channel, two audio/video components, or used to store your DVD/CD collection. The compartment measures 37.5" wide x 10.5" deep x 8" tall for a center channel or media. By removing a wood strip, the shelf will provide two compartments that are 19.5" wide and 16" deep to accommodate A/V components. The shelf will hold up to 75 lbs.

Enclosed Cabinet: The Novia 8421 features an enclosed cabinet which houses two shelves which make up six compartments. The enclosed cabinet features two wooden doors with see-through tempered glass inserts so your components IR commands will still function.

Ventilation: The stand's lower cabinet feature's floor-through ventilation to promote air flow and to keep your equipment running cool, prolonging your components' life.

Hidden Wheels: Hidden wheels make adding a component or changing a connection easy. Even when the stand is fully loaded, you can move your system away from the wall for easy access to cables and connections.

Levelers: There are adjustable levelers on the bottom of the cabinet, which may be adjusted to allow the stand to rest flat on your home's floor.

Great investment for both my electronics and my living room

Written By Stacy Q, Oregon on Sunday, August 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this from Crutchfield in April 2009. I agonized over the price but I just couldn't find anything with these features and quality at a better price. In person, this is a beautiful piece of furniture (mine is in natural cherry) that fits in well with my dark oak furniture. I only needed to add the glass to the doors and top of the unit; otherwise it came completely assembled. The wheels are discreetly hidden and make moving this easy and painless. Note: Discreetly hidden feet can be lowered to keep the cabinet from moving. My 46" TV fits very easily on top without hanging over the edge. It is sturdy and made with hardwoods with a very thick varnish that resists scratching. Hinges resist slamming; and doors align perfectly. All of my electronics are out of sight but I can still access them with their remote. The cooling features are particularly beneficial with today's electronics. All of the shelves have vents, back of shelves are open and the top door has a cloth panel for cooling and discreet speaker & Monster PowerCenter placement. In the center, I have a DVD player, Satellite DVR, and Onkyo receiver. Since my receiver generates a lot of heat, I keep it by itself on the top shelf so it won't heat up my other components. The side shelves hold a Roku, Logitech hub, DVDs (15+/shelf), and TV accessories. Bottom line: After more than four years of use, I still love it, and this cabinet looks as good as it did on the day that I got it. I'd highly recommend it
Functional but elegant; beautiful, simple lines; quality construction, materials, finish & hardware; built to last; discreetly hides my electronics behind doors; can use remote even when doors closed; cooling features built into every area of the cabinet; wheels for easy movement; surprisingly functional space; corner cabinet but would work equally well in the middle of a wall; shelves are adjustable and side shelves & top cabinet have adjustable "bookends" to keep DVDs and such in place.
Glass top does attract a lot of dust, but my Swiffer cleans it up pretty quick and easy. Side shelves are deep but not terribly functional.

Quality furniture, high but fair price.

Written By Gary, St. Leonard, MD on Friday, March 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have purchased many items from Crutchfield in the past, and always had good experiences, and this BDI cabinet is no exception. The delivery man brought it into the living room, unpacked it, looked it over to be sure there were no problems, and then took all the packaging material with him. The design is great, the wood solid and beautiful, and the workmanship excellent. Dampers on the doors so they cannot slam, and a smooth hinge for the top compartment. I will never need another corner cabinet, since I don't think they could improve on this one.
Great quality, excellent delivery service, beautiful piece of furniture.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Excellent tv cabinet. Don't be put off by the price, you are buying a piece of quality furniture, something to have in your family room, something that serves a purpose but also looks very nice. The features and quality are excellent, nice set up for tv, dvd player, cable box and storage too.Delivered in perfect condition, packed very well.

This is REAL Furniture

Written By Princess, Long Island, NY on Monday, January 11, 2010
Not your mother's nasty self-assembly plywood. Comes completely assembled, except the knobs, Top compartment with mesh hides the dreaded cable box. Cable box remote operates even while compartment is closed. Every corner lines up perfectly. Hidden wheels make it easy to move and removable back make it very easy to manage wires. Initially balked at the price, but after its arrival and putting my new 50" TV on it, it is gorgeous. I ordered from Crutchfield, even though temporarily out of stock at the time, because I knew there would be no problems and everything from order to delivery would be seamless. This cabinet Rocks!
