Marina Home Theater System by BDI
designed by Cristian Wicha

Marina Home Theater System At A Glance:
The Marina home theater cabinet revisits the ultra chic and modern appeal of the 1950's, yet introduces a sleek and updated look that complements any sophisticated home theater or living room setting. A safe harbor for your components, Marina is full of hidden features. Whether the TV is on or off, this high-gloss system will be the focal point of any room!

The Marina Home Theater System's top shelf holds up to 200 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your components, 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: up to a 70" flat panel or rear projection TV.

What's To Like:
This TV stand is low, sized for larger TVs and wider spaces at 73" wide, and features enough space inside for all your components. It's got IR-friendly glass so you'll never need to open the doors to change channels or skip scenes on a DVD. Plus, it just looks dang cool!

What's Not to Like:
While the Marina Home Theater System 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 Marina Home Theater System is a multi-functional media cabinet that is well-suited for anyone with a large space (especially if you want the space to look really slick) who wants to conceal components without losing use of the remote control.

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.

Recommended for 40"-60" flatscreen televisions.

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.
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.
 
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.
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.
 
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.
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.
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. 
 
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 as needed.

  • Q:

    What are the interior dimensions for the side compartments, with the shelves out. I know the hinge design protrudes outward, so is it possible to install a component from the rear. I have a power amp that is 17.5" D x 19" W x 7.25" H. I think it will fit from the rear or by removing the door temporarily for install. Your help is greatly appreciated. Best Regards, Gene

      A:

      That really depends. I would get some tape and box out a space 22" deep and 73" long on the floor where you want this piece to go. Then you can get a feel for how it will work in the space.

    1 answer

    • Smart Furniture Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The tempered glass top can be cleaned with glass cleaner. Wood and steel parts should be cleaned with a slightly damp (not saturated), clean cloth towel. If moisture remains, dry the surface with a cloth towel. If needed, a gentle non-abrasive cleanser may be used, but be sure to wipe away all cleaner residue and dry the surface with a cloth towel.
