If you're looking for a stand that requires minimal assembling, this is not it. Every single piece of hardware needs to be put on; door hinges, knobs, magnets, metal strips (for magnets), cams, dowels, screws, etc., and, there's lots of them. There are also over 24 panels/pcs. to attach together. Too many pcs. The "wood" is laminated pressed board and not the best quality imitation wood. Also, a sub-woofer cannot be placed next to the stand because the side cabinets swings out and displaces a good 1 ft. of space on either side of the stand, which requires you to place the sub-woofer a good foot away from the stand...aesthetically unappealing. And, the 'adjustable' shelf can only move 1 inch up or down from the center mount. Overall, a product not worth the time or money.
