Avion Noir II Media Center
designed by BDI Studio
At A Glance:
Shown above with the optional Arena TV Mount (see below).
Avion Noir II is complete with all of the features you would expect from a cabinet bearing the Avion name. Grey tinted glass doors span the front of the cabinet to conceal and protect a complete home theater system while allowing remote-control access. The top center drawer's glass panel can be replaced with the supplied fabric insert, enabling use with a center channel speaker.
Recommended for up to 73" flatscreen televisions.

What's To Like:
BDI packs so many great features into the Avion Noir that it's hard to know where to start. The cabinet is supremely well-ventilated, has a great cable-management system to clean up the mess, and infrared glass door panels let you keep your expensive consoles hidden away yet still usable. Oh, and you know how hard it is to move heavy entertainment centers? The Avion Noir II's a snap to move away from the wall with built-in, hidden wheels that don't detract from the look.
What's Not to Like:
It may not be possible to dislike any of the functionality of this media console. That leaves its price, which isn't cheap. But, while the price is high, it's certainly no higher than it should be for a well-designed entertainment center with so many features.
The Bottom Line:
Avion II is the perfect example of what engineers and home theater aficionados talk about around the water cooler. It's BDI's premier enclosed cabinet system - the culmination of years of studying the most demanding home theater systems. The keys to Avion II? It's beautiful, it's roomy, it has a place for everything. And, most importantly, it has a multitude of features built in. The BDI Avion Noir II 8937 TV stand is an open and shut case of media console superiority.
