Good evening everyone I am looking at the BDI av furniture to house all my equipment. The thing is I don't know much about them and they ate expensive. I was wondering if anyone can tell me are they worth the expense and what's the pro's & con's?

Pros are they look great, you have plenty of add ons like cable management, Centre speaker provision, will last years,

cons are they can be very pricey,

but it is all relevant, a £1000 av unit is a fortune to some and light change to others,

I saw a great one at the Bristol show that my wife loved , but even with 30 percent show discount we could not justify the cost!

If they are well built and last a long time then I think they will be worth the money and I would be happy to pay that.

When I was researching an AV cabinet, these were high up my list. My large centre speaker meant I would need something at the top of the range, and the price eventually put me off. I decided to get a custom made cabinet, which I felt (i) looked better, (ii) housed my kit more neatly, (iii) cost about a quarter of the price!

If this is something that interests you, check out these threads:

I got my cabinet (see link in my sig) from Stump Furniture. Other people have gone further with ventilation and false panels etc, the choice would be yours.

Equally, if you do decide to go with BDI I'm sure you'll be very happy as these are very good units :)

I am in the process of buying an AV cabinet and have been looking at many, MANY cabinets. My only real concern with the BDI range is that it still does not address the issue of having the center speaker at ear level. So as nice as the central shelf is for the speaker, it still falls short.

Blok and just racks also do some good furniture and while they suffer from the same faults as mentioned above, they cost far less and are built just as well.

Depends on your budget, but personally i could not justify that. Unless it was perfect for me.

Look at these brands too

1. Blok

2. Just Racks

3. If money is no object....Salamander

Hope this helps
