Sanus Cadenza 75
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Very well built item that arrived on time to our home. This product very heavy so be prepared to have another person(s) help with situating it within your home. Although it's another 'Made in China' item, product was put together very well with only minimal assembly required. Reason I gave it 4 stars versus 5 was due to two factors. Some minor blemishes were found on front of cabinet. Very small, however, and Crutchfield folks did a nice job resolving the issue. Secondly, however, there is a design flaw that's affected my placement of components. For those that mount their big screens on the wall, logical place to put your center channel (assuming it's a separate component) is on top of the cabinet, not middle shelf as mfr assumes. You want your center channel on top of the console to keep sound direction at ear level. Logical alternative, therefore, is to put one's A/V receiver in the area designated for the center channel. Plenty of width but lack of depth. Wooden piece in back of center channel shelf appears to be permanent and part of the structure. Mfr could have easily made this back piece adjustable for just such a purpose. You buy yourself a high end A/V receiver and you're dealing with over 17" of depth not including add'l space needed for the WiFi antenna and HDMI cables & wires. I'm going to see if I can customize this myself with some add'l holes drilled to move piece back as there is room to do that. Problem is if piece is also glued which negates that approach.
Pros: - Well built with very clean appearance. - Nice option to install black mesh instead of leaving wood panels on. - Comes fully assembled with exception being foot hardware.
Cons: - None adjustable center channel shelf as respects depth.
