Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Purchased the BDI Avion Noir 8937 and Arena 9970 TV mount in November 2014 for use with a 65 inch Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 plasma TV. Although pricey, I have been very satisfied with my purchase during the past 2 ½ months. The Avion Noir 8937 is well engineered, constructed, and a very beautiful piece of furniture. With three sets of rollers, the 8937 can easily be moved forward to allow access to the backside of the cabinet which features a well designed cable management system. The Arena 9970 easily suspends the 65 inch Panasonic to a height that allows for up to 16 inches between the bottom of the TV and the top of the cabinet. All of the cables can be neatly concealed behind the 9970 and the ability to swivel the TV approximately 20° is another well designed feature. Also, there is also plenty of room with the Avion Noir 8937/Arena 9970 combo for future expansion to a 70 inch plus TV. The only minor issue was that one of the holes for the handle on the left door was out of alignment preventing the handle from mounting flush. Contacted BDI and a new door arrived via UPS in three days. Tip: If door alignment needs to be adjusted, start with Screw # 1 and save yourself some time.
Pros: Design, features, and quality
