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.
This is a remarkable console and worth every penny! It’s a brilliant design and the only console I could find that would accommodate my large Martin Logan center channel speaker. The interior design provides for excellent airflow while the removable rear panels and numerous grommeted holes for your wires make setup a lot easier and provide for a neat, clean look when done! Not to mention wheels to allow forward/backwards movement for easy access. I love this console! The buying process and delivery was a breeze and customer service is above and beyond. Let me tell you a great story about their customer service! Even though the console was shipped in an incredible amount of packaging and wooden crate, unbeknownst to me the console had been racked (twisted) at some point by the shipping company. After unwrapping the unit their was a small separation at the corner of one of the doors. I emailed standout and assumed they would send someone to make a repair but after talking with Alan (the founder) on the phone he determined it had been racked and insisted (much to my surprise) on replacing the unit. They went to work immediately on building a new unit and personally delivered the new unit within a month, Alan himself along with the top builder Steve drove from PA to MD to deliver it! This is a great company, a great team who build excellent products, care about what they do and provide great customer service. I highly recommend their products!
I searched quite a while (off and on for a year or two) for a strong cabinet with wheels that was big enough to accommodate all my gear and small enough to fit into our space limitations. Not many wheeled cabinets that could handle my 100 pound Amp. None of the standard sizes worked for us. STANDOUT was the only one that would customize a cabinet and there was not a big price premium to do it. Also, the owner, Alan, was a pleasure to work with. Very responsive, offered suggestions for the customizing and kept me informed of the build process. We love our cabinet and highly recommend STANDOUT.
Words can't describe how beautiful this thing is, so I attached a photo (espresso on cherry). Not only does this piece look great, but the quality of construction is very high. The amount of thought and detail that went into everything makes this a pleasure to work with when wiring and setting everything up. It's got wheels, leveling feet, vented shelves, vented and removable back panels, loads of ports for routing wires between compartments, all precisely and strongly constructed. No particle board. This is the real deal, and if you need a quality console with space for a quality center channel speaker, I couldn't recommend this more. Don't forget to add on the grille for the center channel, it really completes the look and makes the whole thing look so neat and tidy. Customer service is also astonishingly fast to respond and has been super helpful in answering any questions I've had both before and after ordering.
The console built is as perfect as perfect can get. Completely satisfied!
I ordered a customized (added 2" height) Majestic EX 70 in Black Ash on 10-31-19. Alan was responsive to my special order and emailed me quickly about my requests which included a WhisperFan kit and 3 fabric door grills (2 main doors / center drawer) in addition to the glass and wood insert for drawer. I figured that would give me options.
When the console was nearing completion, Alan emailed me and verified which days would be best for delivery. I had to delay delivery until 3 Dec to accommodate my schedule.
Prior to delivery, Alan sent an email with a "checklist" for receiving the console and inspection.
The console was shipped via ABF Freight. ABF contacted me several days prior to coordinate a delivery window. The driver was on time. The console was packed in heavy duty cardboard and the fan unit and glass/fabric panels were separately boxed and strapped on top of the bigger box. Everything was strapped to a wooden pallet. The freight driver was patient, let me unbox and unwrap the thin foam and plastic wrap from the console and look it over. It was pristine. Not a mark on it. I gave the driver a tip and he helped me carry it from the garage into the house. (Don't count on that though).
The wheels are taped so you will need to remove that before it will roll.
I am picky and have done some woodworking. As I continued to look over this console and install the shelves etc I was extremely pleased at the quality of workmanship. Even the back and the bottom of the unit is stained/finished.
I had one issue and that was one of the fabric screens (center drawer) had some wrinkling -- basically wasn't stretched as tight as it could have been. I contacted Alan (he actually had already emailed me to see if I had questions) and he responded within the hour and ordered a new fabric grill right away.
If you are questioning whether this product is for you -- All I can say is, It is QUALITY furniture with EXCELLENT customer service. Plus - made in...
Just received my Horizon Media Console and it is incredible. Far better than I imagined. The pictures on the website and the pictures that the production department sent me did not do it justice. And also what I also love is that it was Made In The USA.
Overall was a great experience with Standout Designs customizing to my needs. Highly recommended!
Whisper Fan with digital thermometer works great. Cannot hear the fan run while keeping the electronics cool. Money well spent.
My experience with Standout Designs, specifically working with Alan, has been fantastic. Over several back and forth conversations with Alan, he made sure I got exactly what I wanted and I could not be happier. The craftsmanship is unbelievable. While this is the most I have spent on a piece of furniture, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I had been searching for a new media console for weeks on the internet then I found Standoutdesigns. I actually couldn’t believe that they offered exactly what I was looking, had several styles to selection from and customization too!! I was so excited I immediately emailed the company and got an immediate response from Alan. He was able to answer all my questions, then I placed the order. The customer service experience throughout the process was outstanding. Response were quick to my emails and questions and I was given updates on the progress of my unit. Once the unit arrived I was blown away by the quality, build and beauty of the unit!! All my equipment fits perfectly and cable management is super easy. The entire experience was excellent. If you are looking for a high quality console with lots of smart design features and can be customized, then look no further! I highly recommend the company and the product. I only wish every purchase experience could be this good! Thanks Alan and the Standout Design team!! I couldn’t be happier!! Oliver
The media console is EXACTLY what we wanted. Standout was very easy to work with to get this result - we customized a cabinet to get the features most important to us.
It is a beautiful piece of furniture!
The shelf is very well built, fits perfectly and was very easy to install. I placed my phonograph on the shelf and whenever I want to use it, simply pull the shelf out and it locks into place automatically so I can easily access it. If you want to make your listening experience easier and more enjoyable, this shelf is well worth the money and a nice upgrade to any console.
I was in the market for a new TV and "entertainment center" for the TV and new components. Searched many things on-line and in local furniture stores. Local didn't come close to what I wanted. Found Standout Designs on the internet and they had what met my needs - a nice looking piece of furniture with ample space for my components and a television to stand on top.
It is well designed with A/V connections in mind - can run all the interconnecting cords within the console. All you should have leaving the console is power cords, speaker wires, and whatever you use for internet/TV access.
The piece is attractive and very well built. This should last me the rest of my remaining life...
Customer support was excellent - both before the sale, during the sale/production, and post sale. There was an issue with the doors closing and they were very responsive troubleshooting the issue and ultimately sending me two new doors to resolve the issue.
As others have probably said - these cabinets aren't cheap. But you do get what you pay for!
I could not be anymore pleased with my new Standout Designs media cabinet. Alan worked with me to customize the cabinet that would best suit my needs. The work was done in a timely manner and the cabinet arrived safe and sound. Not only is the media cabinet functional, but it is also very beautiful!
Totally worth it!
