The Quest Has Come to an End
The TV console is incredibly well made and sturdy. It is not only functional but beautiful as well. Dealing with Standout Designs was a pleasure too; their communication was amazing. Well worth the money!
Unbelievable quality that surpassed my expectations. It's extremely difficult to find a good looking piece of furniture that can accommodate the size and weight of high end audio equipment, and this console does just that. Plenty of room for equipment to breathe with excellent venting and airflow as well. The a/v company that delivered and installed my McIntosh equipment were blown away as well, and were very happy with how easily the back panels popped off for access to cabling, power, etc. They're going to be recommending Standout Designs to their clients looking for high quality, functional consoles going forward. Plus the hidden wheels that allow the piece to be moved away from the wall easily really are the icing on the cake. Thank you Alan and everyone else for designing/creating/building such an incredible product!
Beautiful console I love it. I couldn't be happier with the quality and craftsmanship.
I believe that the best furniture is manufactured in the United States and this media console is among the best of the best. The use of solid wood and the highest quality hardware are part of making it so. And the finish is beautiful. Some of the "stand out" features are the number of vents in the shelves, the number of cable management access ports, and the hidden wheels which make access to the cabling a breeze.
I removed the center door because I like the look of my McIntosh amplifier and wanted direct access to the controls.
I couldn't be happier with this media console.
This is the second product we have purchased from Standout Designs. Both are excellent quality. We ordered the white glove delivery, however due to Corvid 19 it had to be canceled. There was actually very little that needed to be done for the install. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. A screw driver was the only tool necessary. Excellent products. I highly recommend Standout Design products.
The instructions were clear. Shelf components are high quality. Shelf was easy to install and operates very well.
I highly recommend this product.
Standout really does great work - we just received our new console and couldn’t be any happier - the quality and the craftsmanship are outstanding - the product isn’t cheap but since it looks so great we think it’s worth every penny - this console replaces one we bought from Standout over 10 years ago in our old home and they’ve improved an already excellent product - I love how easy it is to remove back panels to place stereo and tv electronics inside - intelligent design to go with great wood and superb finish - highly recommended!
thank you very much for this great quality piece of furniture. If you couldn't tell when we talked i was pretty nervous to order something like this on line. I appreciate all the time you spent on the phone up front before the sale and all the contact throughout the delivery and after. Even the freight company was great to deal with. You put my mind at ease and the end result was perfect. You guys build a great product. The best part of it it looks more like furniture than a TV or AV cabinet like some others on the market.
again, thank you for making this very easy.
Extremely high quality and finish on this console. You can't find an all wood, custom built console anywhere else. Pictures do not do it justice. What a beautiful piece of furniture. The fit and finish is fantastic. I also added a whisper quiet fan kit, which also works great. You can only get this kind of quality product and customer service at a small business like this. Best of all it is hand built in the USA. Thanks Alan
The whisper quiet fans work fantastic.They are so quiet that you don't even here them when they come on. Is is nice to have peace of mind, knowing that your equipment is not going to overheat. Easy install. Thanks for another quality product.
Shipping of product was very good arrived in excellent packaging and had no damage to product. The media console itself is outstanding in its craftsmanship. Cable access’s were well placed and rear panels easily removed for service. The wheels on the console worked great and made the unit easy to move away from wall when I needed to. Overall it’s a quality product with great craftsmanship. I would recommend this or any of Standouts designs without hesitation.

It’s your old friend and customer Larry Ellena writing to you today from Porter Ranch California. Like millions of other Americans, I have been sequestered to my home to not spread or catch this awful COVid-19 Virus.
First thing, I hope that you, your family, and your talented employees are safe and healthy as we battle this pandemic. It’s horrible…
While being sequestered at home I have been binge watching some of my favorite TV shows, one of them being Larry David - Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO. While doing so, I still get a happy feeling admiring my Horizon EX 64-inch Solid Wood (Walnut) Media Console (2 Media Drawers) I took delivery just over a year ago and still enjoy just admiring it. Every day I still marvel at the contemporary design, the fit and finish, the hardware, the quality of the wood and everything about it still excites me. I am so glad that I found your business online. It’s everything that I was looking for but could not find in the traditional upper end furniture stores, …and to think that it was built across the country to my specifications and delivered to my home in Porter Ranch California! Just amazing…
The ordering and delivery were a first-class experience all designed to complement this exceptional piece of furniture. I get lots of complements on it! So, while binging Curb the term “Respect Wood” is used in more than one episode. When I think of Standout Designs furniture the term Respect Wood comes to mind. Your guys truly Respect Wood and thankfully you do so the rest of America can enjoy it too. A year later I could not be happier with my purchase and I recommend your products to anyone looking for something a little nicer to complement their TV binging experience.
Standout Design truly “Respects Wood” and I respectfully Thank You for doing so…
Happy & Respecting Wood in California,
I am so happy and impressed with my custom made cabinet!! After a lot of time and research looking for the cabinet i had in mind to accommodate my A/V gear i found Standout Designs, not only did i have a lot of gear (about 400lbs) but i was also looking for top notch quality and workman ship, I had a request to see if they could customize the center of the cabinet with 2 additional doors for my reel to reel instead of the drawer or shelves that come with the regular stock cabinets so i went ahead and e-mailed Alan who was quick with his response getting back to me to find out exactly what i wanted, he told be he would get back to me with a price for the piece i wanted, not only did he do that but also included how much extra it would be after deducting the drawer and shelf it would normally comes with ( turnes out between the 2 it was a minimal cost!) About a week after i ordered it Alan sent me a picture of it being built in the shop to make sure that's what i wanted and sure enough it had exactly what i wanted. It was delivered in a professional enclosed delivery truck with an outstanding driver that had no problem while waiting for me to inspect everything before signing the delivery tag (per Alans' recommendation) i'm waiting to receive the 2 center panes of glass that were coming separate since i wasn't sure if i wanted clear or tinted glass (Alan sent me the other ones before the cabinet got there so i could make sure that's what i wanted) and those are the ones i chose so i should get those center panes in another couple of days(that's why you see them missing in my photo).I really like the rollers on the bottom for pulling out the cabinet with all that weight to easily get to the wires in the back,also the many holes for running your cabling thru the unit compartments so its not such a birds nest behind the unit I have done a ton of on line shopping over the years and i would say this is the best experience i've ever had, thanks again to Alan and his company for a great experience!!!
I wanted something more breathable but was concerned about sacrificing looks. However, I like the metal inserts even better than the fabric and the fabric is great too. Not only are the metal inserts very well made and aesthetically pleasing, but far more functional. Now I am asking Standout for the center channel insert too.
My Haven is the best-thought-out, best designed, best built, and best quality piece of furniture I’ve purchased — ever. Cable management is a breeze thanks to easily removable back panels and LOTS of well placed, grommeted 2-inch wire holes. Venting is ample; I recommend adding a fan to the purchase if you have high-end gear that throws off significant heat. There’s no downside with Standout Designs. Their product is EXACTLY as described on their website and delivery was spot-on schedule by a well known professional carrier. Great product, excellent value.
I recently received the Perforated Metal Door Panel Set for my Horizon EX Media Console. The design and quality are excellent. Installation was easy. I really like the updated look and the extra ventilation keeps my electronics significantly cooler. I highly recommend!
Alan, just realized I never sent an initial review on my Horizon EX. I guess I was so in awe of how great a piece it was when I first got it I totally forgot to send in your much deserved feedback. First of all the craftsmanship is impeccable. From the removable back panels along with the hidden cable system, to the rollers that allow easy movement of the console, to the easily adjustable shelving complete with ventilation , and to my favorite, the whisper quite console doors. What a pleasure it is to close those bad boys and not hear a peep when they get to their resting place. Ahhhhhh!!! Job well done. I initially got the smoked glass panels (which I really like) but decided to give the metal panels a try mostly due to the possibility of improving air circulation for my components but also the bold look. I am happy to report I'm am satisfied with both counts. The only problem I have is with the smoked glass I was able to see the information on my receiver e.g. volume, sound source, etc. but with the metal door panel the information is illegible . Well, I guess nothing is perfect but I would like to say you and your company have come damn close. Hope this helps. Take care and again, thanks for a great product.
Keep up the good work(manship),
My customized Haven is a beautiful, extremely well thought out and constructed piece of furniture. I am extremely happy with it. I am even happier with the service Alan provided. Alan was extremely responsive to all of my e-mails as I worked on determining how to customize a 72" Horizon as I had a center speaker that was quite wide and that I was planning on keeping. After communicating with Alan and his team for a few days I ordered what I thought was a customized Horizon that was 68" long with clearance enough for my center speaker to fit in. Unfortunately, when my product arrived it was a customized Haven...and it did not have the clearance for my center speaker. This is where Alan and Standout Designs stood out and stood up. I called Alan to make him aware of the issue and suggested that he either 1) Have the Haven picked up and send me the Horizon ( which I did not necessarily need since they look similar and the Haven was beautiful ) OR 2) He offer me a refund in the amount of the new center speaker I would have to buy if I kept the Haven. Alan did not hesitate and offered the refund. He understood that the mistake was theirs, took ownership and made it right...immediately. Because of that I will go back to Alan and Standout Designs in a heartbeat. Great product AND great service...tough to find
This is my second purchase of a Designs Standout product and the Haven 64 I just bought is as AWESOME as the custom Horizon console I bought last year. Quality is superb. Truly beautiful American craftsmanship. The thoughtfulness put into the design is amazing I am able to run all my wiring internally. These are the Absolute best audio consoles I have ever owned. Alan and his team are so wonderful to work with they customized both consoles for me and they are PERFECT!!!!!! If you want an audio console this is the place to get one!!!!!
Working with Standout has been a very positive experience. Customer service was awesome, Alan from the beginning was quick to respond to any of my questions. The unit was well packaged and the product came in without any defects/scratches. Which is something we all worry about when having an item shipped via LTL carrier. I am very pleased with the cabinet. The joints are perfect throughout along with the finish. The design is second to none. You have the easy access panels on the back of the cabinet, you also have the wheels which make it a breeze to move the cabinet around when you need access to your equipment. I would recommend this company and their product to anyone looking for a top notch cabinet to store there A/V equipment.
I am very impressed with the looks of the console along with the wire routing option not seen until you look inside the cabinet. Quality build, no issue with shipping and great customer service!
Very nice. Works the same as glass except provides more ventilation.
Was looking to this myself,but never got around to it. Called Standout Designs and they told me that they were talking to someone because of all the request for Perforated metal doors. Few months I heard from them and put my order in. Love them, well made and they looked good. I would recommend them to all.
I am very impressed with the 72" Horizon media console I recently purchased. Not only is it a very nice piece of furniture, it is also far more functional than most other media consoles. From the wheels, to the removable back panels, to the wire management grommets, it is simple to connect and reconfigure equipment housed in this console. Although Standout Designs products may be more expensive than self-assembled, particle board furniture, their solid wood construction and clever design justify the price differential.
I received my 'Norwalk 66" Solid Wood Media Console w/3 Media Drawers' & 'Expresso on Cherry Finish' on 01/31/2020 and was immediately impressed with how it was packed. Very protective and professional. It was soon brought in the home and looked fantastic!!! I did have one issue, however. The right door 'rubbed' at the top when it closed. I immediately emailed Alan, the owner, and he put me on the phone with 'Master Craftsman' Stephan. After a few small adjustments to the upper right hinge, it closes properly with 'no rubbing'. I should mention that Alan had committed to sending someone out to my home to fix it if Stephan couldn't 'talk me through it'. I should also mention there was absolutely no hesitation on Alan's part to honor this 'Warranty Claim'. Anyway, I love the furniture piece and would recommend 'Standout Designs' to anyone desiring a 'Quality' item to 'Highlight' their room. Alan was also the 'Best' … he was involved through every part of the purchase, manufacture, shipping, and Warranty issue. Truly a Professional and a Gentleman to work with. I give this purchase a '5 Star' rating.
The console arrived in flawless condition well packaged and protected
The design concept is WELL thought out! The build quality is top of the line
You will not a finer addition to your home decor than these TV Consoles
A wonderful buying experience 5 Stars+++
Thank you Alan And Crew!
Love the idea of supporting a small family business!
I seared for the right entertainment console for my brand new 82" Samsung 8k tv and found it. This entertainment console is everything I hoped for and was looking for. The service was excellent, it was packed carefully, and arrived right on time. Worth every penny. Great job! Neal
This is a very well built and solid tv stand (no cheap pressed sawdust in this anywhere). Shipping was fast and it was well protected from the trucking companies employees. I highly recommend..
So happy to support small business, we are delighted with our new console that holds our new 55" TV. After looking at so many cheaply-made TV stands, we then started to search media consoles and found Standout Designs. The products offered were exactly what we were searching for! Very pleased!
I'm a returning Standout Designs customer, having gifted my last Haven to my son for Christmas. This time was a bit different, and I needed a custom design because of the size of a Revel center channel speaker. It's large and the design wasn't easy. I had several conversations with Alan, and he along with his team came up with renderings and a final product that really fit the bill.
We love the look and have already received a number of compliments, just as we did with our last Haven.
A great family business, and a great quality product!
It's not often you want something bad enough to order it over the internet, and have it and the experience be better than what you expected. But that is the case with our 82-inch Horizon cabinet from Standout Designs There is something very special and satisfying about purchasing a quality product made in the USA from a small company where the owner takes pride in his product and his customer service. Thank you, Alan, for what you do.
Looks great everyone that has seen it loves it
We could be happy
Packaged very well
No problems with installation
The packaging is bullet proof, the cabinet arrived in perfect condition. It is exactly as advertised and so much more. My prior cabinet was two pieces and felt as though it was falling apart every time I needed to service my system. The casters on this unit are perfect, the cabinet rolls very easily out to address any wiring issues. The wood is solid with a high quality finish. The hardware and parts work easily together and clearly have the durability that's needed to stand the test of time. The back panels pop out very easily for complex wiring and the wire ports are large and smartly located. This Standout design media console was well worth the money and time it took to get. I am very happy with this product and did a lot of research, prior my purchase, and there was nothing even close to the value and functionality of this product. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Alan!
Excellent upgrade to my already excellent cabinet! Quick and easy to install and works great. Alan and team do an outstanding job with customer service and building quality products.
