Our take on the Sanus NFA245

The NFA245 component stand from Sanus features five tempered glass shelves for your audio/video gear. The sturdy frame consists of solid, grade-A hardwood. Hollow channels in the rear pillar hide your system's cables for a clean, uncluttered look.

Very good quality, not difficult to assemble.

Wanted stand for corner of room and this unit allowed all items to fit [ Robert  Dec 07, 2016 ]
I was hoping that this rack would work for me, but on carpet it is very unsteady. It is such a nice looking piece. But i had to send it back. [ EnlightMent  Dec 01, 2016 ]

4 questions already asked

can you remove a shelf? My sub would sit on the bottom shelf but I would need to remove the shelf above that one to have room for the SUB height [ Deb  Jul 31, 2014 ]
Can a shelf be removed so my sub will fit on the bottom shelf? [ Deb  Jul 31, 2014 ]
Shelves are not adjustable. Around 8 1/4 inches between top shelf and 10" between others. The open shelf on top is great for adding a turntable. [ JEFFREY  Apr 16, 2014 ]
Not our product. [ STEVE  Apr 14, 2014 ]
Shelves are not adjustable. The useful space height-wise is 8 1/2" +/- just a touch. [ PAUL B  Apr 07, 2014 ]
Shelves are not adjustable and there is 8.75" of space between shelves. [ Edwin  Apr 07, 2014 ]
Sanus website says 74 lbs. [ Wayne  May 15, 2017 ]
It may but it won't slide completely back into a corner, the shelves are still square. [ Paul  Dec 07, 2015 ]
The back is not a complete triangle, however you could make it work in a corner but you would have to be out from the wall a little bit. I'm very happy with this stand, its super sturdy, looks great and with the sides open its very easy to hook-up components. [ Shelly  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Yes, it will fit well in a corner. [ TIM  Nov 30, 2015 ]
The top glass shelf has angled corners, the other four do not. Our unit is placed in a corner. [ Richard  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Yes. That's where mine is. [ FRANK  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Mine is in a corner and I think it looks good. [ Claude  Nov 30, 2015 ]
The glass tapers in to 18" towards the back. It won't tuck completely into the corner but it will work. [ Laura A.  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Yes...perfect for corner placement!! [ REGINALD  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Yes! We are actually now using it in a corner. Fits great. [ NICOLE  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Works great in the corner and is well made great audio stand hope this helps [ jason  Nov 30, 2015 ]
YEs, it fits great. I put mine in a corner of my family room. [ David  Nov 30, 2015 ]
Hello, Access to the back is very good, assembly was no problem. Sturdiness, well, it is reasonably sturdy, but not rock solid. I have a turntable on the top shelf and didn't want any give to the rack at all. I have checked and made certain all the bolts and screws are tight, so I believe I put it together correctly. Having trashed it, let me say it isn't horrible. If the top shelf isn't used (the very top) the lower center of gravity would make it more stable. As for moving it, I don't think you could with equipment on it. Even without it is quite heavy. The rack does look nice. It isn't flimsy, and pieces together without trouble. [ ANDREW  May 15, 2014 ]
It is fairly sturdy and not too heavy (unloaded) although the glass shelves do add most of the weight. It can be moved fairly easily with two people. I would not think that sliders are needed, but that might make moving it easier depending on placement. It is a good looking stand [ JOHN  May 14, 2014 ]
Fairly sturdy Remember it is flat shipped and you put together. Back access is fairly easy but it depends how accessible the unit is from the slides. It will not slide around with ease. It is made to be stationary [ Louis  May 14, 2014 ]
The product is sturdy as long as you properly tighten all of the bars. The unit does flex a slight bit as I move the tower, but I do not feel it will fall apart when the tower is moved. I do recommend putting sliders on the feet. I have hardwood floors, so I use felt sliders. My tower is placed in a corner and I have short cables connecting my equipment through the wall. So, I've rotated the tower many times to make adjustments or to add additional equipment into my AV receiver. [ MICHAEL  May 14, 2014 ]
This product is very sturdy- I am using all 5 shelves, with heavy Mac equipment on mid two shelves, table on top, tuner and tape deck below. Cable management is very good. My unit is on carpet, in a corner, and cannot be moved with equipment in place. I access the equipment when needed from front, and reach around back if cabling needs adjustment. Rack looks great with my gear. Would definitely purchase again. [ David  May 14, 2014 ]
The product is sturdy and looks beautiful in our family room. It's accessible and although we don't have the need to move it you could put sliders on its feet. It is a nice addition to our home. [ NANCY  May 14, 2014 ]
