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
- Fits 3-4 media consoles
- 58.25" w x 22.75" h x 19" d
- Black steel frame

In order to perform at peak levels, your components not only need to look cool, they have to stay cool. This open TV stand is fully ventilated, with open shelving providing the ultimate in heat dispersion.
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.
BDI home theater furniture is engineered to keep the usual tangle of cables and connections neatly under control. This open TV stand features a back panel with generous cable-routing openings. *** You'll be able to gather and secure all cables out of sight by using the supplied Velcro® closures.
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.
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.
