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.
