Sonda Entertainment Console 8656 by BDI
designed by Noah Packard
At A Glance:
Combining the best elements of open and closed systems, the Sonda TV stand offers convenient access with an enclosed feel. The open shelf can host a soundbar, center channel speaker or several components. The lower cabinet appears to float within the black steel frame and includes a removable back panel for easy access to the rear of three component compartments. Sonda is finished with a tempered, black micro-etched glass top.
The Sonda TV Stand's top shelf holds up to 150 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your components, unless you plan on using them to store large amounts of lead.
Recommended TV size: up to an 60" flat panel TV.
What's To Like:
- You'll have a hard time finding an open TV stand with features as comprehensive as this one - including the cable management at the back.
- The soundbar compartment is just right for the state of today's audio accessories.
- The Sonda Entertainment Console is stronger than strong, unlike most of its competitors in the "open TV stand" category.
What's Not to Like:
While the Sonda Entertainment Center does many things well, it's an expensive solution. We think it's worth the money, with its superb functionality and awesome looks - but it's still pricey.
The Bottom Line:
The Sonda Entertainment Console is a slick, multi-functional media stand that is well-suited for anyone who likes the open look but needs more than just a "shelf" for their TV and components.
- Fits up to an 60" flatscreen TV
- 58.25" w x 22.75" h x 19" d
