Avion Noir II Media Center
designed by BDI Studio

Concealed Speaker Compartment
This TV stand includes a concealed compartment designed for use with a center channel speaker. The compartment features a speaker-fabric panel front, allowing your speaker's sound to come through crystal-clear.
Precision Hardware
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.
 
Removable Back Panel
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.
Hidden Wheels
Concealed wheels are built into this unit's leg assemblies. This means the TV stand can be moved (even if fully loaded) away from the wall by one person for easy access to cables and connections. Levelers allow the unit to be raised off of its wheels to secure it in place.
 
Cable Management
BDI home theater furniture is engineered to keep the usual tangle of cables and connections neatly under control. This cabinet features removable back panels for easy access to the rear of components. Integrated routing channels provide space for speaker and TV cables to be neatly concealed. You'll be able to gather and secure all cables out of sight by using the supplied Velcro® closures.
Integrated Levelers
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. This home theater cabinet includes integrated levelers that are readily accessible from inside the cabinet, allowing it to be lifted up off of its wheels to secure it in place if desired.
 
Adjustable Shelves
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 in 1.25-inch (32 mm) increments as needed.
Flow-Through Ventilation
In order to perform at peak levels, your components not only need to look cool, they have to stay cool. This cabinet facilitates airflow through generous ventilation slots integrated into the bottom panel, wood shelves and removable back panels. Cooler air is drawn in from the bottom of the cabinet, while hot air is naturally expelled out the back.
 
Tempered Glass
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.
IR-Friendly Glass
All of BDI's furniture is designed with ease of use in mind. Grey tinted glass doors and windows keep components out of sight yet are compatible with the Infrared (IR) signals used by many remote controls.
 

Avion Noir II TV Stand At A Glance:
Shown above with the optional Arena TV Mount (see below).

Avion Noir II is complete with all of the features you would expect from a cabinet bearing the Avion name. Grey tinted glass doors span the front of the cabinet to conceal and protect a complete home theater system while allowing remote-control access. The top center drawer's glass panel can be replaced with the supplied fabric insert, enabling use with a center channel speaker.

Recommended for up to 73" flatscreen televisions.

What's To Like:
BDI packs so many great features into the Avion Noir 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? The Avion Noir II's 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:
Avion II is the perfect example of what engineers and home theater aficionados talk about around the water cooler. It's BDI's premier enclosed cabinet system - the culmination of years of studying the most demanding home theater systems. The keys to Avion II? It's beautiful, it's roomy, it has a place for everything. And, most importantly, it has a multitude of features built in. The BDI Avion Noir II 8937 TV stand is an open and shut case of media console superiority.

Overall: 22.5" h x 65" w x 22" d 
 

TV Mount Option
This BDI entertainment center accommodates the optional Arena TV Mount. With simple hardware, the Arena TV Mount securely fastens your flatscreen TV to your entertainment center. Arena is the perfect alternative to wall mounting your television and features a swiveling mounting bracket.

  • Q:

    What's the difference between the Noir II and the Avion II Triple-Wide (model 8927)? The Noir is ~10 lbs heavier, and $100 more expensive.

      A:

      Essentially the difference is in the doors on either side of the unit. The Noir has a single large piece of glass on each side in the door frame whereas the other Avion has two separate pieces of glass inside the wooden frame on each end. Aside from different finish options, thats really it.
