Our take on the Sanus CFR2136 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
If you have a large, multi-component audio/video system, you know storage can be a problem. The brawny Sanus CFR2136 is a great solution. It can handle a whole-house system and then some. And it has enough space within the cabinet to run your cables.
Sturdy casters make it easy to move, and each shelf is backstopped so your components sit securely during repositioning. Quick-release removable side and back panels give you access to your components.
Rack-mount or shelve your gear
The CFR2136 can accommodate up to 36 rack-mounted components that are 1-3/4" high. Or you can use the included shelving to store up to eighteen larger components. You also get rack face plates, so you can fill in empty gaps between rack-mounted of shelved components for a cleaner look.
Easy cable connections
Space behind the shelves lets you run connecting cables between your components. And a three-rack panel that can be attached to either the top or the bottom of the rack's rear gives you options for running cables out of the cabinet.
The beefy CFR2115 can support up to 500 lbs. of electronic gear. Welded heavy-gauge steel construction makes it durable and strong, and a locking tempered glass door gives you added security. Drop-down legs provide stable support, and they're adjustable, so you can ensure your gear stays level.
Ventilation to keep components cool
Integrated vents along the edges and air holes in the back panel keep air circulating. The cabinet also features cooling shelves on both the top and bottom of the rack for improved airflow. In addition, every shelf also has ventilation slots to help keep the temperature down. .

The rack also has two 3U cut-out openings on both top and bottom of the rack as well as a removable 3U panel that can be located above or below the rear rack door for added venting or active cooling flexibility.

Why did you buy this?
I want to organize my equipment and keep it in one centralized (and secure) location. This cabinet is exactly what I need! [ Michael Aug 28, 2018 ]
I got this to hopefully reduce ambient temperature during equipment operation and therefore prolong equipment life. [ Robert Oct 20, 2017 ]
2 questions already asked
Sorry, no. The depth provided by the shelves is 18.2" so, the 19" chassis depth will be too deep. [ Ryan Mar 16, 2018 ] Staff
1 answer Hi - Is the difference between Sanus CASH23 and CASH22 only the number of shelves? Would the 15% discount for accessories apply if such was not bought at initial purchase but after receiving/setting up unit and learning I could use something else? Is the light fixture(s) (not the bulbs) already in the unit or an accessory? Can you comment on the integrity of my cart? I'm thinking I probably don't need both drawers? Thank you, Bill [ William Sep 13, 2016 ]
The only difference between the Sanus CASH22 and the CASH23 is the CASH23 allows more compartment/shelf height at 5-1/4" compared to 3-1/2". For more information regarding your other questions, I would recommend contacting an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat--they will be able to go over all of your options in greater detail. I hope that helps! [ Larry Sep 23, 2016 ] Staff
