Contemporary styling meets practical storage
Contemporary styling meets practical storage
The BDI Avion Series II lowboy cabinet rests on a sturdy stainless steel base and easily supports a flat-panel or rear-projection TV with a screen size of up to 60". With an optional Arena 9972 free-standing bracket, you can even mount your flat-panel TV above the cabinet without drilling into your wall.
Glass-panel doors elegantly show off your system and allow remote control signals to pass through to your gear. The center drawer has a cloth panel and can hold a center channel speaker in front, plus DVDs or Blu-ray discs behind its divider.
Concealed ventilation slots keep your gear running cool, even with the doors closed. Hidden wheels built into the frame let you easily move the cabinet away from the wall for cleaning your system or hooking up a new component.

BDI Avion 8927 Series II reviews
Nicely made, well designed, looks pretty, holds up pretty well (I've had mine for about 12 years), except... I had a very heavy 165 lb. 70" JVC DiLA set on there for almost a decade. Its weight was no problem according to both the specs and talking with the manufacturer, but after 10 years, there is a subtle but perceptible bowing of the top from the weight. I've since replaced it with a 65" OLED that weighs significantly less, but of course there's no way the top is getting straight again. It's a subtle bowing, but it's there. Expensive yes, but after 12 years it still looks great. As always, you get what you pay for.

BEAUTIFUL piece of furniture. Everything turned out to be as advertised: high quality, handsome and designed for AV use in every way possible. It's not inexpensive, however worth the price if you have the means.
Cons: None whatsoever

it's very overpriced. it's nice enough, but it's laminated wood. it's not at all what i would expect for how expensive it is. for the cost, there are much better solutions.

Love the cabinet. the attention to detail is remarkable, from the soft-closing doors to the ventalated shelves. It is every bit as well crafted as it is beautiful to look at.
Pros: Elegant appearance, vented and adjustable shelves, hidden wheels, easy pop-off back, built to last

BDI has created a beautiful and highly functional piece of A/V furniture. The cherry finish is stunning and the construction is solid. The ventilation, movable shelves, center speaker drawer, removable sliding back panels, not to mention the hidden wheels, make this a breeze to install and wire up your HT. You get what you pay for in this piece. Of course Crutchfield service and support was top notch as usual.

Attractive and well-made piece of furniture. The minimal assembly is pretty easy. Be forewarned that because it's pretty solid, it weighs quite a bit (about 200lbs I think). It ships in amazing packaging, I think they could have dropped it from a plane and it would have been fine. I went for the espresso color figuring in a dark home theater room it would blend in better. These are expensive units, but well worth it. The wood and the hardware (hinges, handles, legs, wheels) are solid and well-made. Their marketing says it's designed by electronics people, and I'm inclined to agree. It's designed for good ventilation and easy management of wires and connections. Very pleased.
