Audio/video cabinet for TVs up to 52" (Chocolate)
Our take on the Sanus BFAV48 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Sanus BFAV48 cabinet not only provides a home for your audio/video system it's understated elegance complements any décor. Simple lines and richly stained hardwood veneers make this an attractive piece of furniture. This cabinet's elongated hexagonal shape lets you place it either flat against a wall, or snugly angled in a corner of your room.
Smart A/V design
The extra-wide shelves provide plenty of room for your gear. Each shelf is ventilated, ensuring a free flow of air to keep your components cool. Openings in the back panel let you conveniently thread wires between shelves, keeping them organized and out of sight. The cabinet top can support a flat-panel TV with a screen size of up to 52" and weighing up to 150 lbs. And this piece is compatible with Sanus' ELM701 anti-tip strap, which can give your TV additional stability.
Easy, no-tools-required assembly
Although it ships flat, the BFAV48 can be unpacked and set up within minutes, without using any tools. The panels snap together with built-in locks, and the interior shelving and supports slip into place on sturdy pegs. The cabinet doors are already mounted in their frames. You simply attach the knobs and slide them onto their hinges.
