In order to perform at peak levels, your components not only need to look cool, they have to stay cool. ***EITHER THIS*** This cabinet facilitates airflow through generous ventilation slots integrated into the bottom panel, wood shelves and removable back panels.

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.
The best place for a TV is sometimes the corner of the room, but common rectilinear TV stands may be too wide to effectively use the space. This BDI design is specifically engineered to be placed in a corner, maximizing your space with a minimal footprint.
BDI home theater furniture is engineered to keep the usual tangle of cables and connections neatly under control.
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.
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.
