    Excellent Addition to my home theater

    I bought this unit after moving to a new home. My goal was to house all of my home theater components and not have the mass of wires hanging out from all sides. I found it on one of the sites Best Buy price matches with and got it for less than the stated price. Best Buy was great about it. No hassles what so ever. The unit was wrapped and strapped on a skid upright and was delivered by motor freight. I tipped it on its back to get it in my pickup truck camper and used hand trucks to wheel it around the house to my basement. The unit comes with 2, 1U (single height) shelves, 2, 2U (double height) shelves and 2, 3U shelves. It also has 3 blanking panels in the 3 different heights to fill in any holes. Never having done it before, I made a couple of false starts before I came out with with an arrangement that I liked which meant some shelf moving, but it was no big deal. Even fully loaded, it moves easily in and out of the corner I have it placed in and being able to remove the side and back panels makes it really easy to get to everything. I am still in mid process of bundling wires together and putting order to my connections. the slots in the shelves and in the cross and vertical pieces makes for a lot of places to thread my cable ties through to get things cinched down. As far as any additional purchases I am going to need to make for this unit, I will be buying an additional 1U or 2U shelf and a 1U blanking panel when the Xbox One is released and possibly a cooling fan depending upon the interior temperature once everything is buttoned up and powered on. I am very happy with this unit. It is well thought out, well executed and very attractive.

    Great Audio rack!

    This is a great rack make no mistakes about it. How ever its not made of very thick material as say a Middle Atlantic cabinet. For this price it should have been built much more heavy duty. That being said its still a great cabinet. Just some flimsy pieces you have to make work like the top cable inlet on mine is popped up from the rack its self. The bottom cable inlet part is the same way and I noticed that there are some sharp edges around the port so I think I will buy some edge guard to wrap around it so it will not cut the cables that are going through the port. Also the front solid legs not the rollers are to far forward so you can not hide them with a blanking plate for a cleaner look. So I will have to buy a larger blanking plate to fit in to the space and then have to make a bend in it in a couple spots so that the legs could be hidden and not seen for a much cleaner look. Because of this I docked this cabinet 1 full star. Paying this kind of money you would expect more attention to detail. Especially since they are probably only using about $100 in actual Metal cost to build it and probably $300 total for everything. Oh and before you buy make sure the measurements fit your needs. I am installing in to a closet and mounting through a wall in to the media room and lucky for me I only had to take off door edge trim to get this in the closet. Other wise I would have had to cut the hole though the wall to get it to go in to the closet.

    Never Again

    First thing they put a giant sticker on the glass which will leave residue on the glass that you need to clean off and to make matters worse whatever adhesive they used stinks/off gasses like crazy! They also designed aspects of the rack poorly and their products don’t even fit their maximum depth of the rack (without moving the rails). One of the pieces even came bent in the corner so I would say their QC is poor as well. Contacted customer service about all my issues and were little to no help and took a really long time to respond. I don’t plan on purchasing another one of their products again and this item is supper inconvenient to return itself!

    This thing came in the mail already assembled and ready to roll! The packaging was great and nothing was damaged. This rack is built with excellent quality and not that cheap flimsy metal material. The versatility is outstanding with the rack options. It comes with adjustable shelves for stereo components OR you can rack mount your stuff. Each side panel is easily removable and clips back in effortlessly. I would recommend this to anyone and hope that they understand its worth every penny!! Don't skimp out and buy a cheap rack that you have to assemble and falls apart. Buy this one and don't look back!

    Great rack but came misconfigured from Sanus

    This is a very nice rack, well built, lots of flexibility and configuration options. My unit came with four 2u shelves and no 3u shelves or spacers (there should have been two of each shelf and one 3u spacer). I called the mfr (their number is in the features section of the product listing on BB website) and they shipped out two 3u shelves and the spacer that day for free. Great customer service, but check your rack when you get it. They may be assembling them incorrectly at Sanus.

    After moving the 196 lbs item w packing materials down a flight of stairs, I was very please to find the item virtually already put together. The rack is very well put together. It allowed me to relocate shelf and remove one to fit my 70's style equipment into the cabinet. No more CAM lock furniture for me.

    This rack is well worth the money!! All the tangle of wires are neatly tied up and the plug bars are easy to get at. The sides and back are nice and easy to take off or put back on. So if your looking for a new rack , look no further!! This is the one!.

    Solid shelves and unit. On wheels with feet to stabilize when wanted. It comes preassembled so you need to take some time to unscrew the shelves to place them in your desired position so it takes some time to unscrew 4 screws per shelf and then screw them back in.

    My wife was initially hesitant to the design but after receiving the special delivery she quite enjoys the looks and functionality. I added the multi volt power supply, task light, and fan to go along with it.

    I’m so glad I didn’t skimp on the rack as having a well organized cable management system not only looks great but is well worth the investment to ensure equipment function and future expansion.
