Most of the time, a media console falls into one of these categories:
1. Often Stocked. You can often find this particular console (this particular style and wood/finish) ready to ship because it is pretty popular and we regularly make it. Because it is popular, it might also be out of stock at times, but with shorter wait times because we build it pretty frequently.
2. Not Often Stocked. You might find this console in stock. Why it might be made to stock now and then is more art than science and we will leave it there. In the case of Cherry consoles, you might see shorter wait times for a period of time because until we lock in the stain toward the end of the process, it can be made into any of our offerings.
3. Made Just for You. This designation applies to Walnut and a few models where the alternate configuration (e.g. all drawers) is not in huge demand but we are prepared to build it when required.
So here is the bottom line: if what you want falls into the second category, grab it if we have it or allow time for us to build it. if what you want is in the third category, allows leave time for us to make it. We often do better than our estimates and only rarely go longer. No matter what, it is worth the wait to get the fine furniture you seek for many years of enjoyment.

I purchased the 72 inch Haven EX a few months ago. I recently moved and my previous AV furniture no longer fit the space. I looked at some of the larger manufacturers to compare to Standout. Standout Designs was able to customize the center speaker cabinet by making it taller and the drawer shorter. I was then able to use my existing B&W speaker set up, which was a high priority for me.
The Haven is what I would call subtle high quality. It doesn't call attention to itself and you realize it's quality on second look. It is not the least expensive option, but I can say it is both a substantial price AND good value! I could see myself still using and enjoying this piece of furniture for the next 20 years.
I have bought not one, but two of the 'Standout' consoles to hold a 75" television and the various components as the centerpiece for my entertainment center.
The first one was the standard design composed of cherry wood with the espresso stain. I bought it after doing my research into who has the 'best' consoles on the market, and Standout Design came out on top. It was delivered without a hitch and the guys who delivered it set it up in my house as advertised. It was a high quality, beautiful piece of furniture that complemented the rest of the room.
So, number two came about after I bought a new center speaker: I had measured a speaker, but when I purchased I bought a top line Revel instead of the one I had measured! The new speaker was too big for the standard console, so given my pleasure with the Standout Console I had, it was a no-brainer to visit with Alan about a new one, but customized to fit the new speaker. He and his team were able to do a custom job and my new speaker fit perfectly. The new console, as before, is a fine piece of furniture constructed by craftsmen (and women no doubt) that serves as a centerpiece in the den.
What happened to the first one? I gave it to a young person who is very proud of having his first piece of high class furniture.
Bottom line: highly recommend if you are in the market for a console that is 'fine furniture'
Bought this unit in October 2017 and received it in December. We selected a custom wood and stain combination that better matched our room furnishings. Alan sent out both standard and custom stained samples that we could choose from in our build and continued to work with us throughout the selection process. The unit arrived undamaged and presents beautifully in our home theater. The cabinet spaces are sized nicely to accommodate six different audio/video pieces including two receivers as well as a large center channel speaker. Since I use two receivers, I had Standout include powered ventilation that kicks on silently when cabinet temperature rises. We also had Standout included the smoked glass and make a center channel cover for this media center to disguise the electronics and speaker. The entire cabinet is built well of quality materials and had plenty of wire receptacles in order to route and hide speaker and power wires, HDMI and Cat6 cables. Additionally, this unit sets close to the floor allowing us to camoflage all those exposed wires radiating from its backside. Side Note: I looked at many different media centers from many different manufacturers. Most of these were sized wrong, wouldn't fit my components and were built of pressed wood and cheaper materials. Standout has built its reputation on serving the audio/videophile community with products that are proportioned nicely and present beautifully in the home.
