Casata Media Stand 2823 by BDI
designed by Cristian Wicha
At A Glance:
Casata's clean, horizontal design creates the perfect balance. Contrasting with the rich wood top and sides, the recessed grey tinted IR (infared compatible) glass cabinet conceals DVD players and video game consoles and keeps them remote control accessible. The Casata TV stand by BDI features adjustable shelves with flow-through ventilation, soft-close doors, hidden wheels, and removable back panels for easy access to components and connections.
The Casata Low Media Stand's top shelf holds up to 150 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your consoles, unless you plan on stacking gold bricks inside. If you do, please take a picture so we can all enjoy the sight of massive amounts of gold in a TV stand.
What's To Like:
BDI packs so many great features into the Casata entertainment center 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? Casata is 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:
Casata is the perfect example of what engineers and home theater aficionados talk about around the water cooler. It's a premier enclosed cabinet system - the culmination of years of studying the most demanding home theater systems. This media stand has a multitude of features built in. It's the cream of the crop.
