Our take on the BDI Revo

by Ralph Graves

BDI's REVO cabinet offers stylish storage for your audio/video components in rooms where space is at a premium. Its sleek, modern design blends in well with den, office or bedroom décor. The cabinet supports a flat-panel TV with a screen size of up to 37". It also swivels at its base, so you can easily turn your TV to watch from just about anywhere in the room.

The REVO features a large, open shelf and three additional shelves behind a curved glass door. Wire channels at the back of the shelves let you neatly route your system's cables. The cabinet stays well-ventilated to keep your gear running cool, even with its door closed. A removable back panel gives you easy access to your equipment.

Fits Perfect!

Written By David, Kalamazoo, MI on Sunday, September 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
After remodeling our living room, we wanted an appropriately scaled TV and a cabinet that housed the components out of site. I was a bit hesitant to purchase because the manufacturer suggests a 37" TV as the maximum, so I called BDI and they explained it was for aesthetic reasons only. Well, let me tell you, 37" TV's are no longer readily available, but don't despaired because most 39" & 40" fit nicely and do not look out of place. This is largely due to tv's loosing their bulky frame. I have a 39" Panasonic and it looks super on top of the Revo. The build quality is superior as is the fit and finish. I chose the darker expresso oak, which is a natural wood veneer exactly as fine furniture. The unit is heavy, which adds to it's stability, yet it rotates with ease. I have not experienced any over heating of components as the back panel is well ventilated. The degree of access of the components is super easy for front and back, allowing for a very tidy installation. The Revo is the perfect solution for those of us who do not want our audio/visual equipment dominating the room.
Build quality is superior to that of the big box store brands and cannot be compared to a knock-down cheaper model. The unit arrives extremely well packed in a very sturdy box with lots of cushion.

Cool Looks, But Hot Components

Written By Dale, Gainesville, FL on Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Pros: The swivel is smooth, the back comes of easily for full access to your equipment, looks great in the corner of the room.

Cons: Expensive, components run hot - something I was not expecting given the hype surrounding the BDI name.

It is a nice looking cabinet and sturdily built, that requires some assembly when you get it home. It is my first BDI cabinet and I had very high expectations - especially for the price. I am greatly disappointed in the heat build up in the cabinet with the door closed as I am only running two devices - a few watts from the integrated amplifier and an HD radio receiver above it.

Think Again

Written By SMG, San Francisco Bay Area on Monday, August 25, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
It's a great corner solution. Having only 15-in. depth for components, though, was a little bit of a problem because we have a cd-changer that's too deep. The first delivery had a damaged bottom swivel. The edge was crushed because it's not made of solid wood, it's particle board (?) with a wood laminate. It has nice organizing features to hide cables and ventilation, etc.

1 question already asked

I have an interest in this unit. The largest component I have is an Cambridge Audio Azur 851A. Will the Revo accommodate? Thanks [ David  Jan 24, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • It looks like the Cambridge Audio Azur 851A will be about 2 inches too deep to fit inside this cabinet. However, I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to confirm. They can also discuss other options if it does not fit. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 24, 2014 ]
