Cirrus TV Stand by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly
At A Glance:
Cirrus is a 28.5" tall TV stand and media center with sliding wood-framed doors that conceal two compartments for media players and video game consoles. The adjustable center shelf is the ideal space for a center channel speaker or additional consoles, with a media storage drawer to keep everything neat and organized. Hidden wheels allow the system to be moved away from the wall, even when fully loaded, and removable back panels provide easy access to cables and connections.
The taller of the Cirrus media centers, the Cirrus TV Stand is perfect for the bedroom or anywhere the TV needs to be a little higher. Also see the Cirrus Entertainment Center.
The Cirrus media stand's top shelf holds up to 150 lb, 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.
Recommended for up to 73" flatscreen televisions.
What's To Like:
BDI packs so many great features into the Cirrus TV Stand 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? Cirrus 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:
Cirrus 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.
|TV Mount Option
The Cirrus TV Stand accommodates the optional Arena TV Mount. With simple hardware, the Arena TV Mount securely fastens your flatscreen TV to your entertainment center. Arena is the perfect alternative to wall mounting your television and features a swiveling mounting bracket.
Recommended for 40"-65" flatscreen televisions.

In order to perform at peak levels, your components not only need to look cool, they have to stay cool. This cabinet facilitates airflow through generous ventilation slots integrated into the bottom panel, wood shelves and removable back panels. Cooler air is drawn in from the bottom of the cabinet, while hot air is naturally expelled out the back.
This TV stand features the finest quality materials and finishes. Sturdy construction and steel or interlocking-panel supports provide a strong foundation for your home theater. Additionally, BDI specifies only the finest European-style hardware. Door handles and other metal details are beautifully finished. The unique soft-close hinges on most door assemblies are fully adjustable to ensure that doors hang evenly, swing smoothly and close gently.
This home theater cabinet is innovatively engineered in a unique way so that the back can be removed effortlessly for easy access to components and connections. Need to accommodate a very deep component? The back panel can be left off the cabinet without sacrificing any structural rigidity, allowing the component to extend from the back as needed.
Practically all of the glass used by BDI is tempered glass. Tempered glass is virtually shatterproof and four to five times stronger than standard glass. When used for shelves, tempered glass is strong enough to support the heaviest components and provides a high degree of durability.
All of BDI's furniture is designed with ease of use in mind. Grey tinted glass doors and windows keep components out of sight yet are compatible with the Infrared (IR) signals used by many remote controls.
Concealed wheels are built into this unit's leg assemblies. This means the TV stand can be moved (even if fully loaded) away from the wall by one person for easy access to cables and connections. Levelers allow the unit to be raised off of its wheels to secure it in place.
BDI home theater furniture is engineered to keep the usual tangle of cables and connections neatly under control. This cabinet features removable back panels for easy access to the rear of components. Integrated routing channels provide space for speaker and TV cables to be neatly concealed.
Floors can be quite uneven and your home theater needs to be level for optimum performance. This BDI TV stand includes easily adjustable levelers to compensate for minor leveling issues in flooring or to correct minor panel-alignment issues.
Because components come in many shapes and sizes, This TV stand features shelves that can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of systems. Shelves rest on unique steel shelf pins, which are rubber-padded to minimize vibration of components, and high-quality threaded inserts allow you to readjust shelf positioning as needed.
