Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Arrived in a timely manner and once assembled it looked even better than the website picture, with clean lines and the slow closing doors is a nice touch. It complements audio room; may have to get the Corridor 5620 to finish off room

Pros: Clean lines and slow closing doors is a nice touch-well thought out.

Cons: Upon installing the bottom base (metal) to furniture, the inner pilot holes did not line up for complete installation to base. So, only the outer holes are attached. You may want to check installation prior to packaging to make sure all holes line up correctly

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Beautiful as expected! - The low height is the right height for looking right at the middle of the TV. - There are lots of options for routing cables cleanly inside and outside the cabinet. At the same time, since you can't see the cables, it's OK to be a little less than perfectly clean! - There's is plenty of ventilation. - Remotes work fine through the slats, though, I might try to raise one shelf up a little bit to improve IR reception (which is easy!). - I LOVE that it has a built in TV anti-tip strap that was very easy to use. - The wheels make it easy to move the stand a little to make cabling adjustments. - My large center channel fit great in the center section and sounds fine. Because of the size of the speaker, though, I did have to put the receiver in a side section. Assembly was pretty easy, but leave yourself a lot of room to work and get a buddy! One side of the box is labeled to open it first, look for that before the shippers put it down on the floor. One door was pretty out of whack, but I got them all adjusted with no problem. Make small tweaks and have patience. Shipping was slow. Crutchfield/BDI used CEVA Logistics and then they used another agent to get the piece to Midland (since it's relatively remote). That agent was completely overwhelmed by the holidays and pretty much just gave up on doing anything in a timely manner. I had to call several times to get my delivery scheduled, which was unfortunate. Still it did

Pros: Assembly, design, blend of form and function

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Arrived quickly from the manufacturer with no damage. I have heard nightmares about these entertainment units taking a long time to ship and damaged on arrival. Assembly took 10-15 minutes, and it is the perfect height for my seating height and speaker arrangement. No more cluttered cables behind the tv, everything is clean, organized and plenty of circulating air. No issues with remotes working through the wooden slats. Everything was well thought out with this - form and function are beautiful.

Pros: Easy assembly Contemporary design Well thought-out for performance.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Really amazing and high quality piece. Really love it. Only issue is that it's difficult to get the legs to align to have all of the drawers line up. After a lot of time, they are still out of alignment. Other than this, it's a truly amazing piece.

No issues with sound quality and I've tried with both. Also, remote are responsive as well. I have the 8179 and I purchased the smaller feet to lower the unit. It's a clean look and built very well. I did have the 2 center doors cracked/broken, but the folks at Crutchfield / BDI took care of it by sending me another pair of doors. [ Richard  Feb 07, 2018 ]
I had to modestly increase the volume to that channel using my receiver to compensate for the door. (Running through your receiver's auto-setup, like Audessy, would likely have the same result). But I noticed no degradation in sound-quality with the door closed. [ Jonathan  Feb 05, 2018 ]
I have not been too scientific about it, but I think there's no difference. I've never had anyone comment on center channel audio quality either. [ Matthew  Feb 05, 2018 ]
Sounds fine to me, no distortion that I can tell. Had this for about a year and loaded with receiver, game system, subwoofer, some various other things and the weight hasn't been a problem. Rolls on wheels relatively easy even on carpet. Expensive but should be able to get 1-2 decades of use. [ Yan  Feb 05, 2018 ]
I have had the soundbar locates both within the cabinet and also placed on top of the cabinet. I did not notice an appreciable difference in the sound quality either way. It seems to be mostly a matter of asthetics. [ KELANI  Feb 05, 2018 ]
