Our take on the BDI Marina 8729-2

by Ralph Graves

Display your gear in this retro-cool cabinet

The BDI Marina 8729 cabinet recalls the space-age styling of the late fifties with its curved lines and high-gloss finish. This sturdy, spacious cabinet can support a flat-panel TV with a screen size of up to 75" and weighing up to 200 lbs.

With an optional Arena 9970 bracket, you can even mount your flat-panel TV above the cabinet without drilling into your wall.

Versatile storage options for your system

This cabinet can store up to eight components. Its left and right side compartments each include an adjustable shelf and a tinted glass door that allows remote operation of the components within.

Use the open compartment for your center channel speaker or for game controllers and other accessories. The lower compartment features a tinted glass door, and can hold either another component, or CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

Openings in the removable back panels let air circulate, so your system runs cool, even with the doors closed. Hidden wheels let you easily move the cabinet when connecting new components or cleaning.

BDI Marina

Written By MildBill, Charlotte, NC on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The BDI Marina is a beautiful piece of furniture that works well with our 65" large screen TV. At it's price, we assumed it would be a quality unit, but it exceeded our expectations both in looks, design and construction. It is built like a tank yet it has an elegance about it. Beautiful gloss finish, clean lines, smooth remote friendly glass doors, cable management and ventilation, all integrated into a classic piece, wow! The whole family loves the look.
Design, build quality, functionality. Packing was excellent too, the only think to do was to pop the two back ventilation panels into their slots and move it into place. The doors came preinstalled. Pretty painless.
I have a large tube amp that is 19"s wide and it is a tight fit, so measure the width of your components closely. Depth was not a problem. If you are planning to use a sound bar in the center opening, measure first.

BDI Marina - Black

Written By Matt, Saratoga, CA on Monday, March 14, 2011
Ordered the BDI Marina for it's clean look and perfect size for my needs. I've owned it for nearly a year and have a Yamaha RXA2000 receiver, Sony PS3, Direct TV DVR and more than 100 blue-ray discs fitting easily inside. I also have a Polk CSi A6 Center Speaker which is a perfect fit in the space provided so it doesn't have to sit on top of the unit. The Polk speaker is adjustable so it can be optimized relative to the viewer from the mounting position in the BDI unit - nice!

I must admit, the quality and craftsmanship of the unit are exceptional. BDI clearly engineers the furniture grade cabinet with Audio/Video useability in mind. The shelves and the unit are highly configurable and vented for A/V components. All the hinged doors have integral dampeners (no slamming) and operate like butter. The tinted glass allows just enough visibility for component lighting to be seen without being obnoxious. The unit is SOLID and appears like it is built to last for decades. Expensive but worth it.
