Novia TV Stand by BDI
with Subwoofer Cabinet
designed by Matthew Weatherly
At A Glance:
Novia 8426 TV Stand is a unique home theater cabinet that is perfectly suited for systems with subwoofers. Usually an eyesore, the subwoofer is completely out of sight, concealed behind the left side of the cabinet. Cables are neatly routed through the integrated channels, keeping everything neat and organized. The top compartment of the Novia TV Stand can conceal a micro system, additional components, or center channel speaker, while the lower cabinet provides media storage and a compartment for a height-adjustable component shelf.
The Novia TV 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.
Recommended TV size: Novia 8426 holds flat panel TVs up to 55".
What's To Like:
Dedicating a compartment to house the subwoofer? Great idea. Designing that compartment to also provide media storage in front of the subwoofer? Brilliant idea. This small TV cabinet packs a punch larger cabinets wish they had.
What's Not to Like:
While Novia does many things well, it's still a smaller cabinet than some of BDI's other entertainment centers - which means there's less media storage and fewer component slots.
The Bottom Line:
The Novia TV Stand is a multi-functional media cabinet that is well-suited for anyone who wants the TV to be at a higher level and has components and a speaker system to conceal. With its built-in subwoofer compartment, it's great at keeping your media room looking clean.
