Thoughtful audio/video design

There are three separate compartments for your components, each with an adjustable shelf. Wire channels let you neatly route your system's cables. Ventilation ports keep your gear running cool, even with the cabinet's doors closed. And hidden wheels let you easily move the cabinet away from the wall for cleaning your system or hooking up a new component.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

An amazing piece of audio/video furniture. Best type of unit I've ever owned. The "mirage" of solid doors is amazing allowing all remotes to still work with the doors closed. Self-closing doors are incredible so there is no slamming or noise. Sturdy construction and moves easily on wheels. Wish I had room for the other BDI Mirage units to use for DVD storage!

Pros: Quality, Appearance, Strength, pre-assembled, open design for easy wiring in the rear. Plenty of room for components.

Cons: Unit came dirty inside its carton, manufacturer could've cleaned unit for transport. If doors are closed, some equipment builds up too much heat like my PS3 so the door should be open while in use.

Q & A

1 question already asked

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: On that BDI Mirage 8227 cabinet, the max interior height is 14 ¾" so most of that should be accessible when adjusting that center shelf but the manual doesn't specify further. As for adding a cooling fan, we don't carry a BDI fan but we have three component rack fans from Sanus that can be made to fit the Mirage 8227.
