About the Sanus CFR2127

Ralph Graves
If you have a sizeable audio/video component system, then the Sanus CFR2127 component rack was made for you. This metal cabinet securely holds your gear, and has enough space to run all your cables inside it.

If you have a sizeable audio/video component system, then the Sanus CFR2127 component rack was made for you. This metal cabinet securely holds your gear, and has enough space to run all your cables inside it.

Sturdy casters make it easy to move, and each shelf is backstopped so your components sit securely during repositioning. Quick-release removable side and back panels give you access to your components.

Rack-mount or shelve your gear

The CFR2127 can accommodate up to twenty-seven 1-3/4"-tall rack-mounted components. Or you can use the included shelving to store up to 13 larger components. You also get rack face plates, so you can fill in empty gaps between rack-mounted of shelved components for a cleaner look.

Easy cable connections

Space behind the shelves lets you run connecting cables between your components. And a three-rack panel that can be attached to either the top or the bottom of the rack's rear gives you options for running wire out of the cabinet.

Industrial-strength construction

The beefy CFR2127 can support up to 750 lbs. of electronic gear. Welded heavy-gauge steel construction makes it durable and strong, and a locking tempered glass door gives you added security. Drop-down legs provide stable support, and they're adjustable, so you can ensure your gear stays level.

Ventilation to keep components cool

Integrated vents along the edges and air holes in the back panel keep air circulating. The cabinet also features cooling shelves on both the top and bottom of the rack for improved airflow. In addition, every shelf also has ventilation slots to help keep the temperature down.

55" Tall AV Rack (27U): : The Sanus Component Series CFR2127 AV rack stands 55" tall, provides up to 27 rack spaces, and can support up to 750 lbs of AV gear. It comes pre-assembled with blanking panels and vented shelves, which include back stops to ensure AV equipment does not move during use.

  • Shelves:
    • Two 1: 17.4 (w) x 1.75" (h) x 18.2" (d), 30 lbs weight capacity
    • Four 2U: 17.4" (w) x 3.5" (h) x 18.2" (d), 50 lbs weight capacity
  • Blanking Panels:
    • Two 1U: 17.4 (w) x 1.75" (h)
    • Four 2U: 17.4" (w) x 3.5" (h)

Steel Construction: The Sanus Component series CFR2127 features heavy-gauge welded steel construction that is strong and durable.

Lockable Tempered-Glass Door: The Component series CFR2127 features a lockable tempered-glass front door that can be placed on the left or right side of rack for added flexibility during installation. The lockable tempered-glass door provides security, while maintaining component visibility.

Quick-Release Removable Panels: Quick-release back and side panels allow complete and total access to components and wiring. The CFR2127's quick-release removable side and back panels allow for easy access to your components during and after installation.

Convection Cooling System:  Cooling vents on the top and bottom of the rack ensure all equipment stays at the ideal temperature. The Sanus CFR2127 employs a convection cooling system that allows warm air to escape through the top as cooler air is drawn in through the bottom of the rack, keeping your AV gear at the proper temperature. The rack also has two 3U cut-out openings on both top and bottom of the rack as well as a removable 3U panel that can be located above or below the rear rack door for added venting or active cooling flexibility.

Adjustable Feet: The Sanus CFR2127 includes four adjustable feet and 4 swivel casters to help with placement. These swivel casters and adjustable feet allow mobility and stable positioning,

Customer Q&A

11 questions already asked

I am looking at getting this stand, however the shelf width concerns me. Does anyone know if a Marantz SR8012 will fit into this without using a shoehorn?
[ JOHN  Nov 24, 2022 ]
1 answer
The Marantz SR8012 is 17.375" wide. The width of the shelves in this cabinet is 17.4". The SR8012 would fit, but it would be snug. However, this isn't uncommon for AVR units situated in equipment racks.
[ ZACHARY  Nov 25, 2022 ]  Staff
Is there any way i can hold two 80lb each audio amplifiers and my gear on this thing?
[ james  Jul 20, 2021 ]
4 answers
James. I bought the heavier shelves and used them to mount a denon amp that about 60 lbs and a pioneer amp that is about 80 in this cabinet and a bunch of other gear without and problems. I also bought the fan assembly's for cooling. Filled my rack though
[ RON  Jul 20, 2021 ]
James, per the Sanus web site, the CFR2127 comes with four 2U shelves with a 50lb weight capacity for each shelf. I have three Emotiva amps in my rack, two XPA3's and one XPA5, as well as a Marantz processor, but none of them weigh more than 50lb.
[ Jeffrey  Jul 20, 2021 ]
Put their heaviest amps on the bottom of the rack***
[ STEVE  Jul 20, 2021 ]
Yep. Most people put the heaviest equipment (which are typically amplifiers). My amp is only about 55 pounds but it holds in place no problem and the full weight of equipment in my rack is close to 300 pounds and there are no problems.
[ STEVE  Jul 20, 2021 ]
How much space is there between the front rack and the glass door (when closed)? I have rack mounted equipment with XLR connections on the front. There would need to be enough space for the connections protruding from the face of the equipment.
[ Derek  Feb 08, 2020 ]
5 answers
There is about 1 1/2 inch between the components and the glass.
[ WILBERT  Feb 27, 2020 ]
The racks allow you to adjust a fair amount. Mine are configured for 2 1/4 " from the rack to the glass. This is not QUITE enough for a Blue Ray disc to eject fully, but it certainly is far better than other racks I have worked with. If you use Right angle XLR's you will not have any problems. Hope that helps. By the way, I have NO complaints with this rack at all. It is expensive, but I looked around and I could not find any rack that was as well built and was easy to work with when you need to quickly strip off a panel to gain entry. I wish the rack was 25% less expensive, but it truly is a quality piece of gear. Even my wife likes it! That absolutely surprised me.........
[ Michael  Feb 21, 2020 ]
Hello! The distance between the front edge of the rack and the glass with the door closed is exactly 1". I hope this helps and you have enough room. The Sanus unit is really nice- Very professional looking and excellent heavy-duty quality. Crutchfield is awesome as well! Best. Poppa Wheelie.
[ JEFFREY  Feb 20, 2020 ]
The cabinet is deep, so I think you will have enough depth to have the connectors in the front.
[ Lester  Feb 20, 2020 ]
I have a rack mounted NAS installed. When the door is closed, the clearance is about 1 and 1/8th of an inch (about 2.9cm) between the edge of the NAS and the door.
[ Oliver  Feb 20, 2020 ]
Do IR tv/ receiver/ set top box/ etc. remotes go through the glass door? I would like to avoid to have an extender and buy a universal remote.
[ BERRNHARD  Apr 11, 2017 ]
2 answers
IR works great. This rack is fantastic!
[ Michael  Feb 21, 2020 ]
Yes - My rack is full and the remotes work without any impairment to range.
[ ADAM  Dec 12, 2017 ]
Can this be used in a garage? Is it sealed enough?
[ CHARLES  Mar 22, 2017 ]
1 answer
It can. The issue will come from cooling fans. If you need to install some to keep your gear running cooler, then that could bring in a lot of dust/dander from a garage. If that can be kept somewhat under control, then you shouldn't have any issues. HTH! My Bio:
[ JASON  Apr 04, 2017 ]  Staff
what is the usable inside space from front to back and side to side? i am trying to see what size gear can fit.
[ Teryl  Mar 18, 2017 ]
1 answer
I'm not in the position to measure the rack now but I can confirm that it is deep enough to fit my 18.5 inch deep Yamaha Aventage RX-A2060 receiver with some space left behind for wiring etc. Side-to-side fits the 17-inch wide receiver too. I also have an Emotiva XPA Gen3 amplifier sitting comfortably in the rack too.
[ OLALEKAN  Mar 20, 2017 ]
what is the inside measurement of the rack space and can you remove the back ?
[ Teryl  Mar 16, 2017 ]
1 answer
The rack shelves are 17.25 inches wide and are available in varying depths (my shelves are 17.75 inches and 15" deep. The back panel and both side panels are easily removable.
[ Jesse  Mar 17, 2017 ]
Does this unit come with any shelves/blanking plates included? Or are they sold separately?
[ DANIEL  Apr 29, 2016 ]

I have 4 of these cabinents a 2ea. 72" h , 1ea. 52" h, 1ea34" h cabinents , 4 in all . All from Crutchfield . All these cabinents from shelving don`t remmber the number in each Cab. . They all come differant sizes of Blanks as well . All the Cabinents also come with rack screws . With 4 Cabinents I have more tan enough to go around , all are interchangable . Over the years I have spent in Audio ( Pro. audio as well as Home Audio ) I have had alot of equipment Racks and these are BY FAR the best I have ever had . YOU won`t be dissappointed . Hope this answers Your question . Ask more question just ASK .
[ JAMES  Apr 30, 2016 ]
Yes the unit came with an assortment of shelves and blanking plate. I purchased the unit about a year and a half ago, so I do not remember the exact amount, but it was approximately 6or 7 of each. I love the unit, it makes doing your wireing so easy to access, and it looks good too.
[ MARTIN  Apr 30, 2016 ]
The unit I purchased in 2015 was with five shelves and four blanking plates.
[ Anand  Apr 29, 2016 ]
Product comes with several shelves and blanking plates in multiple sizes.
[ Michael  Apr 29, 2016 ]
Would it be safe to put a turntable on top of this rack? I know that the heat vents are on top, do you think it would damage the turnable over time?
[ ALEXANDER  Dec 05, 2015 ]
7 answers
I do not have a turntable, but if I did I would not have a problem with putting a turntable on top of the cabinet. I do not feel a great deal of heat coming out of the vents on top and my cabinet is full of equipment.
[ PETE  Dec 07, 2015 ]
I purchased this item last year. The top is steel and would work fine to put a turntable on. I don't see how it could damage your turn table as long as it has a dust cover.
[ KURT  Dec 06, 2015 ]
It is warm at the top vent but not overly so. Plus the turn table will be in the ambient air so it should cool off. But why not get a taller version and put the turntable inside?
[ SHAWN  Dec 06, 2015 ]
My turntable was on top of my Sanus rack (until I purchased a sliding shelf to hold it) and it never became notably warm. Unless you have a large, hot component near the top of your tack, I wouldn't think you had have any problem.
[ Jesse  Dec 05, 2015 ]
I suspect you would have to have a very hot cabinet to generate enough heat to damage a turntable. There are vents on the sides and back also, so it seems highly unlikely. If you had that much heat you should be cooling it with a fan in the rack or A/C. For typical audio components I think it would be fine.
[ Bryce  Dec 05, 2015 ]
No you would need a lot of very hot running equipment to generate that much heat. I have an 11 channel receiver, separate amp, blu ray player, media server, rook, cable tv dir, apple tv, etc and it generates very little heat.
[ Rick  Dec 05, 2015 ]
the amount of heat should be negligible. I have 2 large amps, pre-amp receiver, and it only gets warm. I have the optional fan unit installed in the top, but I rarely turn it on. If you are that concerned, you can get the fan unit.
[ ANTHONY  Dec 05, 2015 ]
Can the casters and adjustable feet be removed and this rack be used built in? We are doing a new construction home and want this mounted in the wall with closet access from behind. Thanks!
[ Aaron  Jun 08, 2015 ]
4 answers
The casters and the adjustable feet can both be removed this is a great buy will work with new construction
[ devon  Jun 09, 2015 ]
I actually did use this unit as a built in and did not use the canisters. I did use the adjustable feet for leveling purposes which I would recommend. I bulit the framing specifically to fit this unit and then finished it with trim. It absolutely looks like a custom built in...
[ Gary  Jun 09, 2015 ]
Yes, in fact the casters and adjustable feet are included separately to be attached to the cabinet - so you can just leave them off.
[ JAMES  Jun 09, 2015 ]
I see no reason why you could not do this as the wheels are removable and i believe the feet can be unscrewed and removed as well (not 100% sure on that last part but you could just screw them tight to the bottom. there are vents on the sides, top and bottom so make sure you leave room for air to circulate. it is a high quality piece of equipment.
[ STEPHEN  Jun 09, 2015 ]
Can this rack also be used for networking / servers as well ? will a standard server-mount switch fit in this rack ?
[ Luis Gonzalez  Jan 21, 2014 ]
3 answers
Luis, No problem! Rack is standard 19", 1U vertical spacing is clearly marked. Shelves can be inverted to mount wider items as long as their depth is 14" or less
[ WAYNE  Feb 17, 2014 ]
Yes it will. This is a very sturdy case. We are pleased with it.
[ ANDREA  Jan 22, 2014 ]
Yes I have a 1 u music server mounted with my McIntosh equipment. Very well built
