Corner cabinet

AlexF from Maine on 4/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is really tough to find a nice corner cabinet for an Led tv. This cabinet really is a nice way to organize your entertainment system. I was a bit nervous about the size, but we placed a curved OLED LG 55" tv on this stand, and it really fits great. Love having the receiver not seen (behind the darkened glass), but also fully functional. Wheels and a removable back panel make cleaning behind it easy and access to gear a snap. Well thought out design, and I fit a sound bar and DVD player in the top compartment. (May not be possible with all devices). Anyway, well designed product.

Pros: See above

Cons: Expense, but you get what you pay for, and this is a classy piece, not like most of the corner stands out there...

High quality cabinet. Exactly as described. Fast Shipping. Well packaged. Another great purchase experience from Crutchfield.


Cons: Can't think of one.

Great investment for both my electronics and my living room

Stacy Q from Oregon on 8/25/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this from Crutchfield in April 2009. I agonized over the price but I just couldn't find anything with these features and quality at a better price. In person, this is a beautiful piece of furniture (mine is in natural cherry) that fits in well with my dark oak furniture. I only needed to add the glass to the doors and top of the unit; otherwise it came completely assembled. The wheels are discreetly hidden and make moving this easy and painless. Note: Discreetly hidden feet can be lowered to keep the cabinet from moving. My 46" TV fits very easily on top without hanging over the edge. It is sturdy and made with hardwoods with a very thick varnish that resists scratching. Hinges resist slamming; and doors align perfectly. All of my electronics are out of sight but I can still access them with their remote. The cooling features are particularly beneficial with today's electronics. All of the shelves have vents, back of shelves are open and the top door has a cloth panel for cooling and discreet speaker & Monster PowerCenter placement. In the center, I have a DVD player, Satellite DVR, and Onkyo receiver. Since my receiver generates a lot of heat, I keep it by itself on the top shelf so it won't heat up my other components. The side shelves hold a Roku, Logitech hub, DVDs (15+/shelf), and TV accessories. Bottom line: After more than four years of use, I still love it, and this cabinet looks as good as it did on the day that I got it. I'd highly recommend it

Pros: Functional but elegant; beautiful, simple lines; quality construction, materials, finish & hardware; built to last; discreetly hides my electronics behind doors; can use remote even when doors closed; cooling features built into every area of the cabinet; wheels for easy movement; surprisingly functional space; corner cabinet but would work equally well in the middle of a wall; shelves are adjustable and side shelves & top cabinet have adjustable "bookends" to keep DVDs and such in place.

Cons: Glass top does attract a lot of dust, but my Swiffer cleans it up pretty quick and easy. Side shelves are deep but not terribly functional.

Quality furniture, high but fair price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have purchased many items from Crutchfield in the past, and always had good experiences, and this BDI cabinet is no exception. The delivery man brought it into the living room, unpacked it, looked it over to be sure there were no problems, and then took all the packaging material with him. The design is great, the wood solid and beautiful, and the workmanship excellent. Dampers on the doors so they cannot slam, and a smooth hinge for the top compartment. I will never need another corner cabinet, since I don't think they could improve on this one.

Pros: Great quality, excellent delivery service, beautiful piece of furniture.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent tv cabinet. Don't be put off by the price, you are buying a piece of quality furniture, something to have in your family room, something that serves a purpose but also looks very nice. The features and quality are excellent, nice set up for tv, dvd player, cable box and storage too.Delivered in perfect condition, packed very well.



This is REAL Furniture

Princess from Long Island, NY on 1/11/2010

Not your mother's nasty self-assembly plywood. Comes completely assembled, except the knobs, Top compartment with mesh hides the dreaded cable box. Cable box remote operates even while compartment is closed. Every corner lines up perfectly. Hidden wheels make it easy to move and removable back make it very easy to manage wires. Initially balked at the price, but after its arrival and putting my new 50" TV on it, it is gorgeous. I ordered from Crutchfield, even though temporarily out of stock at the time, because I knew there would be no problems and everything from order to delivery would be seamless. This cabinet Rocks!

Sorry, no, the 9972 is not recommended for use with the corner-style stands (They have additional support feet in the back that will be a problem. You can't place the TV on top of the stand using the pedestal base that comes with the TV? In a corner position that's really the best option. If you prefer to use a straight-wall stand with the 9972, the Salamander Designs SDAV1 is a great model (50" wide) and will accommodate the BDI mount/stand. I hope that helps.
