Store up to 9 components

The cabinet features two side compartments for your components, plus a center drawer for smaller accessories. The top half of the cabinet is open the length of the piece, giving you plenty of room for a long sound bar. Or you can use that space to house up to three separate components.

Concealed ventilation slots keep your gear running cool, even with the doors closed. Hidden wheels built into the steel frame let you easily move the cabinet away from the wall for cleaning your system or hooking up a new component.

Worth every penny!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my second BDI piece purchased via Crutchfield; definitely worth every penny! This item has just the right amount of space to include a Panamax 5400 power manager together with a Denon receiver, Xbox, surround bar, and other small components with room to spare. Sleek black glass-top resists fingerprint smears and dust together with the louvered spacing that adds ample air flow to the components within (a must in AZ). If this piece was 2-5 inches wider, this would go well with a 75" television. The only suggestion is to make the center drawer optional or removable as the black background of the drawer is visible when sitting directly in front of the unit which breaks up the louvered look. Overall, a fantastic product!

Pros: Ample space Sleek look Great design Sturdy construction Hidden wheels make for easy access to back panel Dust and fingerprint resistant

Cons: If this piece was 2-5 inches wider, this would be ideal to go with a 75" television (not necessarily a negative). Suggestion is to make the center drawer optional or removable as the black background of the drawer is visible when sitting directly in front of the unit, breaking up the louvered look a bit.

Great unit. Some surprises when we got it

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a really well built (heavy) piece of furniture. I say furniture instead of just a 'stand' because it both looks and feels like something you'll want to keep for decades. The hardware and build are top quality, it's well designed for being flexible and usable with your electronics. Good placement of passthroughs for cables and air vents allow a lot of flexibility in how you arrange the inside. A couple of things that aren't clear here or even on BDIs website: The top shelf does is divided in 3 sections but the dividers don't go all the way to the front which allows an up to 9" deep Speaker to go the whole width of the cabinet. Or up to 3 full depth sections. I have a Yamaha YSP-1100 in it. This is the ONLY closed unit I found that that beast would fit in. Although the open slats do allow an IR remote to work with everything closed - it's not easy because you have to get the angle just right for each component. Glass doors are much much easier from that perspective. But these are far more attractive. I'm probably going to get a harmony hub to just avoid the frustration which means we could have just bought a solid front cabinet for the sides but then we couldn't have put the speaker inside which really cleans up the look. The smoked glass top is beautiful, but is a fingerprint magnet. The entire center panel is a drawer front that pulls straight out and the bottom half of it has removable dividers in a drawer that is just rig

Pros: Great build and hardware Open configuration inside Slat front for remote use

Cons: Slat front for remote use not quite what you might think Drawer in center great for useability but difficult for kids to open because of weight.

Stereo cabinet, corridor 8177

I love my cabinet. It arrived in perfect condition. When I spoke with Buck before I purchased my corridor 8177 he was so helpful. The little assembly that was needed was easy.

Pros: Well built piece of furniture.

Cons: The only thing I would change with the design of my corridor 8177 would not have the middle drawer. I would prefer a area that I could put another stereo component or use as store. Not crazy about drawer.

I know that some furniture pieces have a TV support that limits the depth of the top shelf (I had one like this before). I looked about everywhere I could think of including the manufacturer's site to see if I could find a picture of this shelf. I couldn't find one but was able to see that BDI lists that same depth for the center shelf. You're center channel speaker will not fit here. However, we do have advisors that you can reach by calling 1-800-324-9695 for a personal recommendation on a cabinet that will work.

it comes as is. just have to assemble the legs and bolt them on. you need 2 strong people to move it because it needs to be upside down to put legs on. roll it over put the rubber tabs on top for the thick glass top. put on the drawer handles, adjust the door to line up and its done. first class piece of furniture. everything fits perfect. cannot say enough of how classy this is. enjoy it [ Charles  Apr 08, 2016 ]
