House your audio/video components in this stylish real wood cabinet. BDI modeled the Novia along traditional lines, so it makes a beautiful addition to most rooms. This durable cabinet can support a flat-panel or rear-projection TV with a screen size of up to 55". The two lower doors feature grey-tinted glass panels that discreetly hide your system while permitting remote control operation.
Inside the cabinet are two adjustable shelves, as well as wire channels that let you neatly route your system's cables. The wide center drawer lets you store accessories, additional components, or even a center channel speaker. A compartment between the two lower shelves is perfect for vertical video game consoles.
The lowboy stays well-ventilated to keep your gear running cool, even with its doors closed. Hidden wheels let you easily move the cabinet away from the wall for cleaning your system or hooking up a new component.
The BDI Nova 8428 is a superb media stand and cabinet. Packaged well. Set up easily. Stores all AV equipment appropriately with ease of access. Appearance is an attractive addition to our family room. This unit is a good cost / value. Yes, it's an expense but it will be a future valued investment... It's like an excellent pair of quality shoes... comfortably adds to the overall ....
Pros: Appearance, fit, and use...
Very nice piece. Allows for a very organized and neat cable management. Also very well built and classy looking.
I have an existing cherry entertainment center with 52 1/2" between the towers and limited a height of 30", a large center channel (41") and multiple electronic systems. So I had been looking for something to satisfy all my needs ( Looks, size, color, functionality, venting, I'm a neat freak so the removable panels in the back along with the wiring holes make it nice and easy to keep things neat. This cabinet has it all, and its built strong and heavy. It's a bit more money than others I was looking at, but they didn't have everything I was looking for and they definitely weren't built as nice. You get what you pay for with this cabinet. Delivery was good, takes a while to unpack, i've rarely seen anything packed so well. You can't go wrong with the nova 8428.....
Pros: Design, build quality, truly electronic entertainment specific piece of furniture
Cons: None that I've found
I was looking for just the right media cabinet for several years before this purchase and could not be happier now. The cable management is simply outstanding, the wheels allow easy access the the rear of the cabinet and the removable panels there are a joy. I have a large center speaker that I am able to hide entirely behind the mesh of the top shelf and the other components are just visible behind the smoked glass of the lower shelves. The cabinet is very attractive and looks like furniture that belongs in a home. My wife is not at all accepting of visible wires or technology and was fully prepared to hate this cabinet. I had it all set up when she arrived home and to my amazement (along with hers and everyone who knows her) she likes it. This cabinet is a marriage saver.
Received this item on schedule and it was very well packed without any damage. Beautiful piece of furniture with very little assembly required. The hardest part was removing all the foam, wood and cardboard packing. I was able to roll it into my living room with ease. I was able to handle everything by myself but it would be more practical it another person would have helped especially lifting it off the bottom support. My new 46" Samsung HDTV looks fantastic on this classy console. I was able to place my Bose subwoofer behind the TV with room to spare and you would never know it was there. I searched for weeks for a console that would meet all my needs and I keep coming back to this one and I finally ordered it. This console is expensive but you get what you pay for.
We did a lot of research for a new entertainment center. It was so helpful to watch the video of this product on the website and see exactly what was offered. We are very pleased with our choice of the Novia A/V cabinet, cocoa. Crutchfield should be applauded for their amazing service... the cabinet arrived on schedule and in perfect condition. No scratches or any damage! I was so relieved. It actually looks better than it does on the website. The color is darker than it appears on the website, but I think it is even better, richer... a mahogany tone. With its simple clean lines, it's perfect for housing all the components and very well ventilated. We are especially glad that it has wheels, so we can move it easily when needed. The delivery and assembly went well, too. We are very satisfied customers.
I agree with other reviewers that this is a very heavy unit. It was well packed and totally surrounded with plywood in the shipping box. No shipping damage was evident. Set up was straight forward. It helped to have a set of carpet sliders to move the unit to it's location.
The unit is well designed and constructed. Fit and finish are very good and the hardware of high quality. A pleasant surprise for something built in China. Quiet door closures top and bottom. One door hinge needed slight adjustment. There is plenty of ventilation for a unit that is totally enclosed. The rear panels hide the cables and are easy to use. The glass top is very dressy. The color is a fair bit redder than shown on the website photo, but cherry can have a lot of variability and tends to lighten with age. All things considered, I am very happy with this purchase.
I am 100% delighted with my purchase!
I thought I would need a team of engineers to assemble the TV cabinet! Not so!
It was carefully delivered and put in living room. I had no problem unpackaging alone. I did need an extra person to help drag out of disassembled box. This is a HEAVY piece!
Well constructed, beautiful!
Only assembley was attaching knobs, placing glass and easy insert back panels. Could not believe that you can buy something in today's times and not need a team of workers and know how to read Chinese!
Super happy here!
It took three deliveries to finally get one that wasn't damaged. But that wasn't Crutchfield or BDI's problem. (The second delivery looked like two guys with forklifts decided to play catch with it.) It is very well packed and a beautiful piece of furniture. Everyone who has seen it with our new 50" plasma atop, remarks on the stand more than the TV picture!
Crutchfield was awesome to work with on getting the reshipments, and even added more protection after the second mishap.
I am a hero in my wife eyes
My wife is not too happy about me buying a new plasma TV. My previous television was a 42 in first generation HD TV (purchase 2000). It was a big box with no room for receivers and speakers. Because of this, we had wires and speakers showing behind the big box TV that was installed in a corner.
When I purchased my 46 inch Panasonic plasma from Crutchfield and received a 10 percent discount on furniture, I started looking around for a entertainment center that would be all encompassing. This product is not an entertainment center as much is it is a beautiful piece of furniture solid in every way and extremely well thought out. I was able to put my left right and center Bose speakers in the upper compartment which has speaker material instead of a solid door. Because of the compartment slots, the wiring is all internal to this piece of furniture. After I finished wiring everything, there are two beautifully finish back pieces that slide into place and conceal everything. Because of the back pieces, light from a window close does not illuminate the component compartment. Needless to say the look is beautiful. And my Panasonic TV is perfectly matched for the glass top of this piece. My Wife is Happy!
If you are interested in a beautiful finish look for your new plasma/LCD TV It is well worth the money.
This is an extremely well made and well designed cabinet that looks great
and makes the component set up very easy (the back panels are easily
removable). This is a piece of furniture that I will be glad to have for a long,
long time. The cabinet is heavy so get it delivered to a location near to
where you will want it to be.
