The Sanus NFAV230 provides a sophisticated home for your audio/video system. Durable tempered glass shelves with smooth, polished edges support your equipment. The sturdy frame consists of solid, grade-A hardwood with graphite-finished steel cross-braces for visual accent.
The stand's wire management system keeps cables out of sight for a clean, uncluttered appearance. The oversized top shelf is specifically designed for a TV, and its sides are angled toward the rear to allow the stand to fit in a corner.

Average Customer Review(s):
Nice product. Well packed for shipping. Good value for the price.
Pros: Good value for the price
Cons: Shelve height is not adjustable. Make sure your components will fit.
Arrived on time and was notified about the delivery date. Fits perfectly for what I needed. Very good product.
Pros: Well built and beautiful.
Nice product for the price. Not too difficult to put together. Nice looking when finished.
Works well for my needs and limited space, easy to assemble and everything fits well.
Pros: Easy to assemble and fits in a tight space.
Cons: There was a staple stuck in the bottom of the leg that I didn't see while assembling and it scratched my floor.
Nice looking rack, but I wanted my amp on the bottom shelf, but only the top shelf will accommodate deep components (over 15"), so I'm going to have to put my turntable on the bottom rack which makes no sense. The middle shelves have 6.5" height space, whereas the bottom shelf has 7" (again I'm not sure why).
Pros: Looks good Sturdy Cable management
Cons: Only the top shelf will accommodate deep components (over 15") No rubber feet provided Plastic back breaks easily
An excellent design! What you see in the photo is what you will get. Good quality wood, nicely finished, solid hardware, good quality glass shelves. Very easy to assemble. Plenty of room on the top shelf for a turntable, a lamp, and a few accessories.
Pros: Sturdy. Elegant. Well made. Good size.
Cons: If you have a larger amp and are using banana plugs, you may find that the amp just fits onto a shelf with its front end poking out a bit, as is the case with my Yamaha A-S301.In other words, check all measurements carefully. My amp does just fit, but yours might not.
Overall it is surprisingly nice and simple. Panels are solid wood and have an even, smooth finish. Glass is nicely cut and has a slight tint. It was packaged quite well, which is good because the box showed up in a very rough state. No damage to any materials. Assembly was simple, took about 15 minutes. The top glass panel just sits on top, on a couple rubber pads. It can slide around fairly easy until some weight is on it. Two down sides; the rear panel has a flexible plastic cover that pops in place to hide wires. Cool concept, but can't fit many wires behind it. I couldn't get mine on. The shelves are deep, but not deep enough for large amplifiers. My amp fits on the shelf well enough, but the rear support is in the way of plugging in wires. Especially the speaker wires. Had to pull it forward a tad past the front.
Pros: Easily assembled, nice finish, small footprint
Cons: Wire management is a tad lackluster, beware if you have large amps, receivers, etc.
I've owned other sanus products. They were built well. This is not. It's junk.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 2/1/2017 We're sorry you're disappointed with your new stand. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Worked well for our Family room which also has the home theater. The HT Receiver just fitted the bottom shelf height and depth. Unit is very good style, flexible and functional.
Excellent workmanship. Exactly what I needed. Easy to assemble, give it 5 stars.
The stand goes well with the Sanus speaker stands I purchased at the same time.
Pros: Relatively easy to assemble, especially since I practiced putting together the complementary Sanus speaker stands first. Nice looking.
Cons: The top glass shelf isn't attached to the rest of the unit. I hope it stays put! I called Sanus and heard back from a supervisor who said they've never had a problem with this.
I wanted a stand that would fit in the corner, hold four components and do a reasonably good job of hiding the cables. This was a perfect fit. My only knock, and it's a small one, is that the plastic piece that's supposed to attach to the back to hide the cables doesn't function very well. Like the other reviewer, I just tossed it. Be warned that the top shelf is not attached, when only becomes an issue if you try to move the stand, which shouldn't be very often. The four shelves are more than big and strong enough to hold my components: a Panamax M4300-PM Conditioner/Surge Protector on the bottom shelf, a Samsung Blu-Ray player on the next shelf, a DirecTV DVR on the next shelf and a Bose TV controller on the top shelf. All in all, this stand is a nice looking piece of furniture that does what it was designed to do very well.
Pros: Looks good, well designed, functions well
Cons: Back plastic piece meant to hide the cables doesn't work well
Well designed, well made, easy to assemble and looks great. Sets off my stereo components.
Pros: Well made, easy to assemble. Looks great.
Cons: Top shelf is not attached but only presents a problem if attempting to move the rack.
The Sanus NFAV230 was purchase as a TV stand for us. It arrived very quickly after the order was placed. We have a 42" TV and a limited corner space for a TV stand. This 30" product fit perfectly and holds our TV very well with room to spare on the top shelf. It is well constructed and exactly as pictured on the website. The back panel holds our few wires perfectly. The front wood section came broken and we just called customer service and a new section was received in a few days. Very easy to assemble. Very happy with the purchase.
Pros: Solid wood and glass construction. Easy to assemble
This media stand is classy, sturdy and very easy to put together. It holds an Audio Technica Turntable, Yamaha receiver and a TEAC CD player. I have detected no shaking or vibrations at all when I walk past or up to it. It is very sleek and attractive and I am thrilled with this choice.
Pros: Easy to put together, 4 spacious shelves, speedy delivery from Crutchfield!
Works great. Easy to assemble. Put my turntable on the top shelf. Works great.
Pros: Sleek. Sturdy. Modern.
Cons: It would be great if the shelves were adjustable.
I was a little leery purchasing furniture without being able to see it first, but this exceeded my expectations. It looks great and is perfect for holding my stereo components. I purchased the mocha color and it compliments my furniture beautifully. It does a good job of hiding the cables from view.
Pros: Quality, style, functionality
I was really looking for something enclosed with a door for my second stereo, but none of them really fit the bill so I chose this one and am glad I did. It looks great in our formal living room / game room. The finish matches my speakers and, as a bonus, the doors of the dart board. Relatively easy assembly; only had one part that I had trouble fitting but I think that was mostly my fault. I'm very satisfied with this.
Pros: Looks, stability. Appear very durable.
The Sanus NFAV230 stand is perfect for my setup. The mocha color matches my new hardwood floors perfectly. My components fit perfectly on the shelves. I feared my A/V receivier wouldn't fit, but it fits the bottom shelf perfectly. Great looking stand.
Easy to put together and easily hide wires. Stands look good and are pretty well engineered. My speakers are on the heavy side and stand holds them fairly steady. Would not recommend them for a speaker heavier than the Polk RTiA3 s I have on them.
Pros: Easy assembly, neat look
Cons: Not for a real heavy speaker
Super easy to put together and works and looks nice...
Pros: easy to put together
Exactly what we wanted. Was very easy to put together. I was a little worried about the cable run since others had previously said it was too small. I had no problems with five components' cables. Maybe they redesigned it? Couldn't be happier with this unit.
Pros: Easy of assembly. A really nice piece of furniture. My wife loves it so that says it all.
As usual, Crutchfield's service was excellent. However, I received the unit only to find it was missing 8 parts! And I don't mean hardware parts, major components. So I contacted SANUS, which in turn, sent out the parts by UPS ground.......to Hawaii. Seven days later, I was informed by UPS a train carrying my parts had derailed. So here I sit, waiting for $20 worth of parts to assemble a $3000 stereo. All SANUS needed to do was spend $4 more dollars to send the part 2nd day. I would have given SANUS five stars if they would have corrected their mistake in a timely manner.
Pros: Well built, solid wood construction and ease of assembly.
Cons: SANUS customer service........:(
Mostly quite happy with the quality of materials, ease of assembly, and overall appearance. It has one flaw that may be significant to some: the "interior cable channel" is just a piece of flexible plastic that bends into too-shallow channels into the wood frame. This plastic will take any excuse to pop out of its channels. After fussing with the plastic, I eventually discarded it and allowed the cables to fall as they may.
Pros: Looks great. Provides great function. Is made of quality materials.
Cons: The "interior cable channel" design is badly flawed.
We used this to replace our large entertainment center furniture. It holds our blu-ray, Dish, receiver, roku, and apple TV. It was almost too small for the Dish box, but there was just enough room. The Dish's antenna does have to be turned a little or it will hit the top of the next glass shelf. The quality is worth the price, and it was pretty easy to put together.
Pros: sturdy, attractive, and small footprint
Cons: shelf height could be a little higher to accomodate large devices.
Product exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality of its workmanship and materials. Assembly was quick and easy. The one issue...a threadless nut...was quickly resolved by a call to the manufacturer's customer service department. Taking into consideration all of these factors, this is a great value.
Crutchfield shipped on time. The product arrived with a small chip on the front piece. A call to Sanus customer service and they immediately sent a replacement! That is service worthy of repeat business. Thank you Sanus, thank you Crutchfield. It is a beautiful stand.also.
Did not receive the order the first time around despite the UPS tracker indicating the delivery was left on my porch. Called customer service and told them the product never arrived and got a polite service rep who apologized for the inconvenience and shipped a new order the next day. Received the stand today in good order. Assembly was simple and the product is a value for the price and looks great.
This is my first Sanus system but it certainly won't be my last. It is a beautiful and elegant piece of furniture - the wood is lovely, the glass shelves are sturdy and very well made as is every item that is used on the piece. I bought it to hold my first 32 inch Sony LCD that is in the master bedroom and the stand blends beautifully with the furniture. The assembly was absolutely the easiest thing I've ever done and I've put together a lot of "pressed-wood" items together over the years. I want to compliment Crutchfield for having the instruction manuals available to download PRIOR to purchasing something like this. I am somewhat disabled physically and I wasn't sure I could actually put something like this together again, but after reading the assembly instructions BEFORE I purchased it, I was comfortable that I would be able to do so. It took all of 25 minutes to assemble and I was able to do it while sitting in a chair. A remarkable and easy assembly process and yet another reason why I'll be purchasing a similar Sanus piece for my audio system. As always, an excellent job by Crutchfield to provide high quality products from a variety of vendors as well as prompt delivery service.
This is the second Sanus stand I have purchased from Crutchfield. The quality is excellent, it is easy to assemble and everyone comments on how good it looks. Although the Sanus products are very reasonably priced, they look as if they are very high end.
The Sanus v230 is a piece of hardwood furniture and not some "pressed-board" whatever that falls apart should one drop of water touch it. I have a 42" LCD Toshiba sitting on top of my V230, a Bose Wave underneath, and a couple of other components to round out my "system." The V230 holds it all, perfectly and in a tight corner space for my apartment. Plus, it looks good, and fits any decor. Putting the unit together was a breeze! Less than 30-minutes (longer if you're slow, like me and spray cleaners, waxes, etc. on your new item). the box arrived with no damage of any kind, as does everything I order from Crutchfield.
Purchased this stand to put under our mounted tv in the corner of the room. Looks great in that spot and holds all of our stuff. Stand is very solid and easy to put together.
Came well packaged. Easy to build. Looks very well made. Especially liked the smoked glass. Easy to route the cables through the rear. Nice product and worth the money.
Many years ago, we had our milk delivered by Wanzer's Dairy. Wanzers had an advertising slogan that " Wanzers on milk was like sterling on silver." The same can be said for the Sanus NFAV230 component rack. Sanus puts out a quality product made of real wood, not pressed wood chips. The NFAV230 comes in different wood finishes to match various room decors. I purchased one in Mocha to go with the dark walnut paneling in my bedroom. Its a classy looking piece of furniture. The one drawback to this unit is that the shelves are not adjustable. If you plan to put a receiver on any other than the top shelf be sure that your receiver is no more than 6 inches high. I found out the hard way. The Onkyo TX-SR 604 I was going to use didn't fit. There aren't many quality receivers that do fit. I wound up having to spend another $300.00 on the Yamaha HTR-6140, it fits nicely. But all in all, if your looking for a quality piece of furniture you can't go wrong with Sanus. And the assembly is easy! Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $$$$, stay away from the garbage that the big box retailer sells!
Nicely made,Good looking, quick to assemble.
Very classy looking stand. Super easy to assemble.
Good workmanship. Excellent design, cables are well hidden!
Pros: Very well-made and sturdy, attractive design with nice finish, open for great ventilation, assembly could hardly be easier, snap-on cover to hide cabling, fits nicely into a corner, decent price considering quality. Cons: Open design not for those who want everything hidden, cable cover needs to be a little larger - tends to pop off if cables are too numerous or too bulky, shelves could be deeper - cables in center area tend to jam against rear support if equipment is deep. Served my needs well, in a small room, for a receiver, cable box, Blu-ray player, center speaker and 32" LCD.

Had one already and like it [ Steve Feb 03, 2017 ]
I have just spent many internet hours looking for the ideal tv stand. Many hours, indeed. After discovering this item, I could finally call off the search! It has all the features that I was looking for: 30 inch height, not too wide since there will be speakers on matching stands on either side, clean looks and a price I can live with. Plus free shipping! Yay! [ William Jun 30, 2016 ]
Like the style/appearance, intend to use for my audio equipment to replace my old cabinet, rather than for tv usage. [ James Oct 25, 2017 ]
Seemed perfectly suited for my very traditional stereo system set up. Was not disappointed. [ Jack Mar 03, 2017 ]
Fit, quality, price. [ R Aug 27, 2016 ]
Tops are: 5", 13 1/4", 21 1/8" and 30". Glass is 5/16" thick [ Mary Nov 28, 2017 ]
Still in the box but there's a Technical Drawing for it that can be found on Sanus' web [ Steven Jun 10, 2015 ]
Hi Mike, The bottom shelf is 7", the other 2 are 6.5". It's a nice stand although cord management is tough if you have too many cords to fit in the tube. Still worth it. [ Christine Jun 10, 2015 ]
4-1/2, 13, 20-1/2, 29-1/2 You lose some on the shelf heights of each because of the supporting bars. [ Tom Jun 10, 2015 ]
i cannot measure them right now. But you need to look up to then TV rather than straight across. I really like them. For me, it was a good purchase. [ KENNETH A. Jun 10, 2015 ]
