I'm a return customer. The first console we purchased about 7 years ago and is the Haven 72 in Black Ash. We were very impressed with build quality and functionality. Since that time we purchased a larger home and we our finishing the basement. The Haven 72 is moving to the basement so we needed a new console. But this time we went all out and ordered the Majestic EX 82 in solid Walnut. It was just delivered this morning and when my son and I opened the box, we were stunned at how beautiful this console looks in the flesh (see below). Standout Designs has been at work improving their consoles. One really nice improvement is the back panels now snap into place, no more screws. The glass shelves have been replaced with matching hardwood shelves so ours are solid Walnut. The doors now have soft-close hinges. This is a very high-quality product made of solid wood, no plywood here.
If you have been looking for a solid wood, hand-built console, look no further. This is the company you have been searching for. The president of the company (Alan) was extremely helpful and accommodating. The shipping materials are top-notch as well. If you have any reservations about buying a console from this company, I'm here to say place your order. You will be very pleased you did. It goes without saying, we are very satisfied customers.
The design and quality of our new Standout Designs console is amazing. The wood and finish are excellent, and the fit of the hinges and doors is perfect. It was well designed to provide easy access to audio components and wiring, while making a beautiful addition to our family room furniture. The customer service was top notch. I will definitely recommend Standout Designs to my friends looking for a beautiful console for their audio gear or new television.
Everything is super with this console: configuration, beauty, and price/service. It is real hardwood as described (except some back panels), extremely well built, and has a good balance between contemporary and conservative designs. I really love the Rose/Nickel hardware - actually it is a Photo Sample (about 30% discount) but it looks REALLY brand new to me. The console looks and nice smell, the manufacture date on the console was about 3 months before. No scratches, no blemishes whatsoever. This is a very honest way of doing business, as Standout Designs can easily sell it as news and would make a great profit from that. I do much appreciate that.
The console is now a center of my home theater, supports my 65" TV and a 7.1 speaker system. The enclosure is comfortably large to place a subwoofer inside (I tried with mine, but remove it later to save places for my discs). If your AV components >15'' depth, this console is definitely for you. Wire management holes are plenty (7 totally, plus 6 opening gaps at the back panels). The optional fan works fine (activates at about 87F, you can test it by using the hairdresser LOL). Some additional cabinet cooling fan placing on top of your AV might help more. The 2-direction wheels (hidden under the nickel legs) are a great feature as I often move the console out from the wall for changing in my speaker setting.
Took 4 business days to deliver to Texas. Packing is extremely well, and Alan sent a few follow up emails to make sure I get the console and like it. Yes, I do like my console. I love it! Only one issue now: I need some new center speaker to fit into the console center shelf...
A repeat purchase is the ultimate compliment. You can include me as one happy customer. Your console is furniture grade. Wait let me add to that. I wish furniture companies would make there products as well as you do. Fit and finish is impeccable. Packaging is the best. When anyone asks me where I got my TV console, or when furniture for HT is brought up, I give them your website address. I want to wish you and the SD team a happy new year and I hope this review will be accepted with pride. Your company is what the term "Made in the USA" was created for
We are very happy with the cabinet, it looks awesome in our redone TV room. It was difficult to find a real wood furniture grade media cabinet designed for high end audio equipment. I am very impressed and happy with your product. Thank you!
I bought the console because it looked good in the pictures on your website. When it arrived in person, it looked even better - way better! It was perfect in every way and looks beautiful in our home. What I didn't realize when ordering was the careful design features. It became quickly apparent that the unit was designed for the best possible function. Installation of our home theater A/V system was a snap and it operates flawlessly. The solid wood construction is the definition of what I think of to be American quality. Taken together, I believe your product offers a tremendous value. Finally, the purchase process was outstanding. We had the product in our home in less than two weeks from ordering - I have never experienced such efficiency with ordering furniture. So, in case you couldn't tell, we are very pleased with our purchase. Hats off to you, your team and your Company. We wish you the very best for continued success.
I wanted to drop a note complimenting you and Standout Designs on the superb quality of product, shipping and overall customer satisfaction we experienced with our new Standout Haven EX 82 Credenza! First, you were repeatedly most helpful and responsive to each & every question during my assessment, enabling me to arrive at my selection briskly and on my time frame!
First, you were repeatedly most helpful and responsive to each & every question during my assessment, enabling me to arrive at my selection briskly and on my time frame!
Second, the shipping was possibly the most "outstanding" example of care and preparation I've experienced with any product to date particularly fine furniture, which in my experience is really saying something! The pallet based shipment was arguably the most elaborate and thorough packing/shipping arrangement I've ever seen, unit was delivered flawless!
Last, the design, just incredible! I told my wife as I assemble my gear, wired and finalized the credenza "this thing is built "the old fashioned way" with quality hardwood and workmanship and without a doubt the finest insight for AV needs (placement, wiring and venting) I've seen to date, right down to the optional center speaker screen and thermally activated whisper fans! Oh, and of course the easy rollers to move in and out for setup & access!
Absolutely LOVE everything about it I'm SO happy I came across your sight on the web!
My best to entire team and my personal encouragement to your design and manufacturing team to continue what in my opinion is "industry leading value" not often encountered anymore!
Our unit is just beautiful and have my receiver, Blu ray, satellite DVR, center speaker, network storage unit, external drive and 2 Ethernet switches all installed inside with a shelf to spare and the drawers not yet filled and a mountain of wires and cables hidden. Just fabulous and looks great. Really happy and just as importantly, the wife loves it too!
The console was delivered last week and arrived in pristine condition due to the great packaging; the shippers were very careful unpacking and moving it. The console easily accommodated a 75" TV and all the associated equipment. I finished the set-up and wiring yesterday and the console proved to be as practical as it is beautiful -- adjusting shelves and configuring the wiring for all the components was a breeze. The layout of the console gave me the confidence to tackle the job myself rather than hiring someone; saved some $$$! To my wife's relief the wires are all concealed; to my satisfaction this wonderful piece of furniture was made in the U.S.
We ordered the combination walnut and black ash and it was a good choice. It looks contemporary and modern, yet the warmth of the walnut gives it a classic, old-school touch. Alan and his crew were nice enough to entertain our request to fabricate a matching coffee table and these two pieces are simply stunning in our family room. The furniture is not inexpensive, but worth every cent. In furnishing our home, I made a concerted effort to find products sourced and built in the United States. It may cost a bit more, but proved to be worth it across the board. I believe you get what you pay for and this purchase is an excellent value. The workmanship is first-rate, the features of the console are functional and have clearly been thought through by the designers, and the pieces themselves are just plain beautiful.
As an aside: The customer service was impeccable. Alan immediately responded to my emails and calls, and was extremely helpful throughout the process. You just don't find that in most companies nowadays. When we begin to entertain family and friends, I will sing the praises of Standout Designs; I would encourage anyone in the market to consider their products.
As an engineer, I'm hard to please when it comes to build quality and packing to prevent shipping damage, but I am thoroughly impressed with my 82 inch Haven EX and the fantastic attention to detail that is evident in Standout's design, manufacturing and packaging of this product, which arrived in flawless condition, lovingly wrapped, boxed and strapped to a sturdy pallet. In addition to the solid wood construction, I particularly like the hidden casters, removable back panels, cable management, and center speaker grille option. The black on ash finish looks really sharp and perfectly matches my Paradigm speakers. I was concerned that the tinted glass I wanted might interfere with IR signals and require a repeater, but Alan said it's usually not a problem, and he was right - works fine up to 25 feet away. Although I added the rear fan option for insurance, I found that the passive (convective) cooling designed into the side cabinets is already quite effective. Ahead of my order, Alan was happy to discuss potential customization as significant as increasing the depth of the unit by a few inches to accommodate an extra-deep AV receiver. I didn't opt to do that in the end, but compare that flexibility to Salamander, who is locked into their modular system and rudely told me to get lost regarding any dimensional changes. The only challenge was getting this beast down 15 stairs to our lower level. My wife and I accomplished that safely with the help of a "shoulder dolly" strap system; two-person "white glove" inside delivery is also available if one is feeling less able-bodied. This furniture is made to last a lifetime, but I would gladly buy it again if the need were to arise.
I had been driving my wife crazy for several months searching for the right tv console, checking all of the local furniture stores and searching online. When Standout Designs announced that they were releasing an 81-inch version of the Horizon and that they they were discounting the photo models, I had to pull the trigger. I ordered espresso stained cherry with the optional black mesh doors. It's beautiful. Like other reviewers have stated, the attention to detail and the level of craftsmanship is top notch. There is no comparison to the comparably priced tv consoles that I found, and even to the tv consoles that were twice the price. All of the mitre joints are clean, no splintered cuts, just smooth, precise cuts. Clean dove-tail joinery in the drawers. Even the amount of strapping, padding, and protection on the shipping pallet was impressive. The list goes on. My wife was impressed and agreed that all of the other more expensive contemporary or rustic or classic tv consoles that we saw paled in comparison.
Its functionality matches its craftsmanship. I was easily able to fit my components in the left cabinet and my subwoofer in the right cabinet. The depth of the drawers is perfect, leaving enough space behind them for a power conditioner and network switch. Everything has a place to hide. Routing all of the wires and cables was so easy because of the removable back panels.
On top everything, the level of customer service from Alan completed the trifecta of Quality, Functionality, and Customer Service. I look forward to enjoying this console for many years and would recommend this console to anyone!
My unit just arrived it is absolutely perfect! The freight carrier deliveryman was wonderful; they followed the protocol for the white glove delivery. Could not be more pleased!
I purchased the Majestic EX 82" console. We were looking for months for this type of unit. Even our interior designer could not find a unit without taking a saw and drill to the piece to give it the correct media center requirements. This console has all the features . Removable rear panels, adjustable shelves, wire guides/chases and access points that are hidden. The craftsmanship both in fit and finish are outstanding. The unit has a great option that is an automatic fan for a high heat condition. It can be purchased at a reasonable cost. I also requested if they could create a pull out shelf for our turntable and they designed one. This console and the great people behind it ( their customer service cannot be compared) are the reason that we made this purchase and have shared their name/company with others.
The piece Is just what I was looking for. Well designed and beautiful wood. Access and wire management is excellent. You have my recommendation." - Steve Barlow
My wife and I could not be more pleased with the Majestic EX70 we purchased. It arrived in pristine condition. We have never seen anything packed and shipped with such care. The console is perfect and we love the attention to detail in regards to the design and craftsmanship. The customer service was phenomenal as well. Thank you to your entire team!
I love the furniture. Works great.
Love the media unit. It came so well packaged and the delivery guy waited patiently while I unpacked it and checked it over...perfect. We went from one of those monstrous entertainment centers [over 7' tall and 106 " wide] and this is a real change. But the old unit was holding all the ancient cassettes, VHS tapes and even beta tapes. Now that we've cleaned out the old, this is just the right size for us. The color is great and the doors are way cool.
We received the unit on the day indicated and the delivery went off without a hitch. The driver was very helpful getting the unit into the house and waiting while I inspected it. Once it was fully unpacked, it took very little time to assemble the door glass, fan kits and front center grill. The fit and finish of the Haven 82 was without flaw. I've adjusted my electronics setup several times since receiving it and the removable rear panels make it a breeze. The channels for cables and wires are a big hit with my wife. No more moving things around just to vacuum. Thanks for providing us with such a beautiful addition to our furniture.
The console surpasses our expectations. It's a beautiful piece of high quality furniture that meets all of our home theater needs. Thanks again for your help. I will be telling all my friends about the console and singing your praises to all of my friends.bsolutely LOVE the console. It surpasses our expectations.

I purchased a new 65 inch television and wanted something nice to put it on. I looked at literally hundreds of stands but could not find one with all the features I wanted in the size I wanted. Happily I found Standout Designs. I purchased the Haven EX 82 inch console, espresso on cherry. I ordered the optional cooling fan kit and center grille kit. I thought that the quality would be good based on what I read, but when it arrived it exceeded all of my expectations. This is a beautiful piece of furniture. It has many features that I didn't think I would use, but when I set it up I was even happier. The cable management is wonderful. My wife is not usually excited about my choices in furniture, but she loves this one. I am so happy that I found this stand.
I am enjoying the console. It is a thing of beauty. I am happy with my total purchase experience. You guys put out a great product and the shipping was fast and flawless. Thank You. Great Job!
We received our console yesterday and are very happy with it. As you know, I was nervous about purchasing it sight unseen. But the console lived up to the pictures and descriptions on your Web site. Thank you for your help throughout the process! I will be singing your praises and when our guests admire our console (and I'm sure they will), we'll refer them your way.
I am totally satisfied with everything about the console - the appearance, the quality of the construction and finish, and the design is excellent with the ability to easily load and connect everything from behind. And it rolls easily on my carpeted floor if I need to access something while it is stable and solid otherwise. My experience was smooth and easy from my first inquiry to receiving samples of the finishes, to the process of ordering and to delivery by your shipping company. I could not be happier about your product and service - including the times I called you to have a question answered. When I called I always either reached you or left a message which you promptly returned and in a friendly and helpful manner. Thanks very much for a great product and great service. Much appreciated!
I am enjoying my new Standout AV cabinet and how much I value the work you have done to make the buying experience a good one. My local AV integrator kept pointing me toward Salamander, and I did, in fact, buy my theater chairs from Salamander via that integrator. But Salamander's online descriptions of their AV cabinets left me confused about their various cabinet configurations, and a lot of their finishes didn't appeal to me. When I began studying your website, the difference in quality between your cabinets and those of Salamander, BDI and others was really clear. The clincher turned out to be your online videos, which I paused frequently to study the still shots, which helped me decide on the options I would want and even the cabinet width. The finish samples you sent in June helped me confirm that black on ash would work best for me. As I've mentioned, our email conversation provided me with the kind of personal attention I appreciate when making an expensive purchase sight-unseen. The cabinet arrived in perfect condition. I appreciated the care you took in wrapping and protecting every part, and the delivery company provided cheerful and meticulous white glove service. By phone, the delivery company made it easy for me to arrange a convenient day and time for delivery. Thanks, also, for your instructions on how to inspect the cabinet before signing off on delivery. By suggesting a method for me to follow, you lowered my fear of inadvertently accepting receipt of a damaged cabinet. I'm hanging on to those instructions to use whenever I buy other big-ticket items to be delivered by truck.
We are thrilled with the quality and design of the console. This is the only furniture we found that both accommodates all of our surround sound components and is of high quality, carefully crafted materials. Love the spaces for wires, the solid feel of door hinges and drawer mechanism, and the handsome wood grain finish! Great customer service! This company works hard to make sure your expectations are met or exceeded.
I love the media console! It's a beautiful piece of furniture. I'm a big supporter of businesses like yours that prioritize craftsmanship and superior quality. I will definitely recommend your products to others. Your customer service has been excellent.
The American craftsmanship of this console shows and rivals any product I've seen including BDI and Salamander. The company was very thorough in their shipping process and follow up. Because of the appearance and the outstanding quality of this product the price wasn't objectionable. Enjoying my media console very much and am extremely impressed with the outstanding quality of fit, finish and packing. Would definitely recommend to anyone in market for such a product. Very satisfied!
I recently purchased this cabinet and got the Sunrise finish. I wasn't sure if the color would match my furniture so I ordered a free sample with the "Sunrise" on Cherry. It looked like it matched better than any other color I've seen so I ordered the Horizon 72" cabinet. When we received the cabinet we inspected it for any damage. It was perfect. The packaging really protects it. Once we got it inside (easy with a 2 wheel cart) it matched everything. The quality, finish, customer service are all 5 stars. I had a BDI cabinet and replaced it with the Standout. It sure is a lot better.
I am happy with the console. It's a very well-made piece of furniture (as it should be for the price range). The features are well thought out and functional like the removable back panels, cabling tunnels, and the bottom rollers with leveling feet. I expect to have this for many years and get lots of good use out of it.
We're very happy with the console. The quality is superb. Thanks!
The stand is great. We love the look and the elegance it brings to our TV room.
I couldn't be happier with my console. It is exactly what I was looking for--classic looking, fully functional (actually designed for AV equipment), and high quality. Totally worth the money. Also, the customer service during the sales process was great.
I was in need of a new audio cabinet for my brand new 65" TV. I found Standout Designs and ordered the Haven EX 72 inch media cabinet. Due to a complicated delivery schedule for the TV, I emailed Standout Designs. Within minutes I received a response that was personalized, and resulted in a supremely customer focused interchange that worked out all of the details of the sale and the delivery. The piece is gorgeous and extremely well made. It came mostly assembled, and the rest was very easy to put together. The back panels are perfectly designed to open and close to help conceal wires/cords. The TV and speakers fit perfectly. We are extremely happy with it and would highly recommend it. Thanks to Alan for his particularly superb customer service!!
Just a quick note to say that we received the television stand and it's beautiful - thanks for all of your assistance.
I am always a little leery of ordering something sight unseen on the internet. (Especially when there is a lot of money involved) But, based on reviews both here and on other websites, I decided to take a chance. From the moment I ordered the wood samples to the day that my new console arrived, I received the best customer service that I have received in a long time. I had a few questions and Alan responded via e-mail very quickly and answered all of my questions. My wife used to work for a very high end custom cabinet maker and she is naturally critical of any furniture that we purchase. (especially cabinets) I placed the order on Friday and by Tuesday at lunch, the new console was delivered to my house. Once I got everything set up and my wife inspected the console, she was EXTREMELY impressed with both the form and function of the unit! This console has exceeded both of our expectations and if you have any reservations about ordering one... you shouldn't. Standout Designs is a great company to do business with and I highly recommend them to anyone! The only issue is that my 42 inch TV looks really small on top of the console. I guess I am going to have to go TV shopping now.... shucks.... :)
We are just delighted with our beautiful Haven EX 72-inch media cabinet. For years, our home theater equipment sat on a very basic stand and table combination. No amount of effort could completely hide the jumble of cords visible behind them. When we finally decided to order a media cabinet, we wanted something special. What we saw on the Standout Designs website encouraged us to give them a call. Alan was so helpful and provided us with all the information we needed. By the time we placed our order, we had high expectations, and the cabinet that arrived at our house exceeded them. The espresso finish on cherry is a rich, lovely color. The construction is solid and refined, and the design works perfectly with our equipment. Hiding all those ugly cables and cords in the cabinet was a straightforward process. We realized after we began to use the cabinet that we needed one of the fan kits, which turned out to be an easy add-on that did just what it is supposed to do. We are truly pleased with this purchase and so happy we ordered from Standout Designs.
I've been looking for almost a year for a console that would fit all my AV equipment and all of them out there don't have enough depth to hold your standard receiver with cables. The features on it are also well thought-out like the wheels to help get to the back, the back panels for easy access, the ventilation fans and cable management are features you can't get with all the other consoles out there. The only thing I had to do with it is change out the casters because my carpet was a little to thick and it was hard to roll so I bought some larger casters and replaced the originals. In conclusion this is the best TV console you can get.
Just received this unit to place in our new Movie Theater. It is a very high quality piece of furniture and makes the entire space look high-end. We have searched for many months to find just the right unit, and we are so happy we went with Standout Designs over the Furniture Store units, other online companies or even special made cabinet units. This product is far superior to any other we have seen! We were especially pleased with our ability to customize the door facing, handles and fan units. We have exactly what we wanted, with a look that brings lots of compliments. The personal attention we received from the time of decision to the delivery was outstanding.
My Horizon’s unit arrived on Tuesday. The freight company was very professional and careful. I let the driver unpack the unit, and I took a flashlight and looked over the entire piece for about 10 minutes. Everything was perfect.
This is not my first piece of custom made A/V furniture. Back in 2003, I purchased a unit to enclose my new 65” RPTV from a west coast company. It was a very well designed unit, but, I gotta tell you, your attention to detail is second to none! From the cutouts in the shelfs to keep them from sliding forward and back, the internal wire management and ventilation system, the magnetic attachment of the center channel speaker grill, the clip-on backs, and I could go on and on. My wife just loves the way it looks in the Great Room (If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy), and was extremely pleased that I was able to hide the Subwoofer in the unit.
I look forward to enjoying my unit for years to come.
I love my standout console. It has great features from the convertible storage space to the ventilation. Also the hidden wheels are a nice feature. The furniture itself is of good quality and blends well with my more traditional pieces. I would definitely buy it again or recommend it to a friend.
I had been looking for some time for a media center that could hold all of my AV equipment and up to a 90" tv. I wanted something that was designed by someone with a background in AV design. The Standout Designs Haven EX 82 inch media center was exactly what I was looking for. Not only was it designed here in the U.S. but it was manufactured in Pennsylvania using American hardwood. I was delightfully surprised by the level of service that I received from the company. It was beyond outstanding. Something that has really been lost in the 21st century. In fact, the owner himself will contact you directly if you have any questions or concerns. The media center itself is truly a work of art and is a prominent centerpiece in our living room. You can tell it was designed by someone who knows and cares a lot about AV equipment, from the adequate ventilation to the ability to run and access wiring.
I received my Majestic media console yesterday. It is beautiful; the craftsmanship and design are excellent. Additionally, the Sales Team is first rate, professional, and very responsive to questions and requests. Standout Designs is a five star company _____
I cannot believe how perfectly designed and beautifully built this unit is. It is truly a Standout. Totally worth the wait! Installing the shelves and hooking up components is a cinch -- and I'm no techie! Thanks for the outstanding customer service and support.
The entertainment center was delivered today in flawless condition! I had an enjoyable hour or so installing the equipment and doing the cabling. This was an entertainment center designed by a home theater person. The cabling options were perfect and went very well with my equipment. As a piece of furniture, it is wonderfully built and meticulously executed. There is nothing I would change. Even the back is solid and finished. It sits in milled grooves in the back of the entertainment center. The shelves are equally finished and close tolerance. the wiring grommets are generously sized so that all the 12 and 14 gauge wires for my speakers easily fit. Even the back grill is a work of art. Not only is this a beautiful piece of furniture but it is ideal for my setup. I have a 750 watt receiver, a Tivo, DVD player, Apple TV and assorted network stuff installed with plenty of room to spare. I have a Monster Power strip located comfortably behind the center speaker. Needless to say, both my wife and I are completely delighted. It has been a long time since we have been so completely satisfied with a purchase. Well done Standout Designs!
We purchased the Haven 72" console in black with walnut doors and drawer. Standout Designs installed a sliding shelf for our vintage turntable, and it works perfectly. The console is beautiful and very well made. The outstanding workmanship is obvious in every detail. Our two-tone console is unique and we're very happy with our purchase. Alan Adler of Standout Designs was a pleasure to work with. Thank you, Standout Designs!
After researching various forms of A/V furniture (for years) I finally took the plunge and ordered the Haven EX 72" from Standout Designs. What I got was a beautiful piece of solid, quality furniture that accommodates serious audio and video gear, including a full-size centre channel speaker. Customer service is second-to-none and they even built me a custom turntable shelf. This is the last piece of A/V furniture I will ever have to buy.
And shipping to Canada was completely hassle free!
I purchased a photo sample of the Norwalk 60-inch Solid Wood Media Console (in the Espresso on Cherry color). It is an extremely well-made and smartly designed piece of furniture. Customer service at the company was exceptional and professional at all times. The furniture arrived well-packed. In fact, it took more time taking the box apart than anything else -- the furniture was 99% assembled and ready to go. I had a minor issue with the smoked/tinted glass not fitting in my console and they immediately sent replacement glass and kept in good communication throughout the process. Quality furniture like this is expensive but worth it. Excellent transaction.
In his post sale follow-up, Alan asked me what I thought of my Haven 72" Media Console (Espresso Cherry). My reply was, Quite simply, "I LOVE IT!" I am really impressed with the Haven. Admittedly I was hopeful but also somewhat reticent to spend $2,500 on furniture that I couldn't see or touch in advance. I had to rely on pictures, and, as is my nature, research to get comfortable with the idea of trusting what I was seeing on this website. Everything pointed to this being a great decision and boy am I glad I decided to pursue ordering from Standout Designs.
I love the fact that it is real wood. I love that it is American made. I love that I can see the artistry and the passion that went into crafting it. It's not just evident in the finished product but in the sales process, the shipping/fulfillment process and related communications, the delivery packaging to ensure quality, and even Alan's follow-through note post delivery. From end-to-end, this has been a great experience.
My only regret is that I didn't order the equipment fans. I never realized how hot my XBox One gets as, until now, it's always been sitting visibly on a stand versus in an enclosed cabinet. But, once again, the modular design will let me easily order and fit that in once my budget allows.
Thank you for sharing your company's talents. I will be singing your praises to my friends if/whenever they are looking for media consoles.
We love our console. We wanted to buy a "Made in the USA" media console and we looked for quite a while before we found Standout Designs. Your console is made so well with a lot of thought put into how everything works. The back panels make it so easy to get all the media components in place. Our wood door panels were easy to put in place and they look wonderful. The freight company did an amazing job of delivery. Kevin, the driver, was so careful and allowed me time to take the console out of the box and inspect it. He commented that it was packed so well. Thank you for such a beautiful piece of furniture!
To Alan and all the team at standout designs, well done!! These are the finest quality audio video cabinets in the world!! You thought of everything in the design of an outstanding product! This is my second Haven, it arrived in perfect condition as the first one did, packaged well, great shipper, fantastic service. The cabinet fits all my gear perfectly and a huge tv too! It's nice to purchase a USA made product these days! The staff at standout designs were a pleasure to do business with, very nice to deal with, and great pricing on the second cabinet too! Thank you all again for building a work of art!
Ohmygosh I love it!!! I have a smallish space and this cabinet fit perfectly. The ability to organize wires in an efficient and neat manner was so appreciated! I ended up ordering a fan after I had installed everything and when it came it was simple to install and is keeping my AV receiver cool. The folks who delivered were wonderful, thorough and professional, great clean-up. Oh, and it looks great!!! I could not be happier.
We are very happy with our purchase. The furniture is exactly what we were looking for. It is very high quality and fits our needs perfectly. I thought the delivery was going to be difficult since I had to put it in our basement - but even though there was only one person, he took care of this easily and without issue. The entire process was very good. I do have one question or request. I would like to put my turntable on one side of the unit.
Received the product exactly as described. Everything is premium from the materials to workmanship. You can fell the quality when you open and close the doors and drawers. And it is a great looking piece of furniture.
Thank you standout designs for this beautiful walnut a/v stand. Love the wire management / ease of use , and best of all , it's made in America !!
It's beautiful - thanks for the great buying experience and for making such nice products here in the USA.
We shopped consoles across multiple vendors and price ranges, in big box, electronics, stereo, and TV stores. Everything seemed like a trade off – good looking consoles that didn’t do cable management or ventilation well, or products with good functionality, but that were made of pressed board or laminate. Then I found Standout Designs website. The Horizon EX 62 inch looked like a great fit. Beautiful and functional. Real wood. Dovetails. Cable management and removable back panels. Enough space for all of our components. Communications were amazing, from ordering the color samples to post-delivery follow-up. The console came packed amazingly well to prevent damage, and the shipper was great. The hidden wheels and easily removable panels made setup easy, and allowed clean installation of components without visible wires. We are completely pleased with Standout Designs and the Horizon EX. It is the perfect blend of form and function.
This is truly a beautiful piece of furniture. Wonderful ... great service ... Thank you!
Our new Standout Designs entertainment center will remain in our home until our last days and then be passed on to one of our nieces or nephews, whom I hope will appreciate all things Made-in-the-U.S.A. Please give a pat on the back to everyone involved in manufacturing our entertainment center. Seriously nice work! I can now thumb my nose at those inferior Chinese-made entertainment centers! :) We give Standout Designs 5-out-of-5 stars for craftsmanship, style, attention to detail, features, and finish.
I recently received my Haven EX82 console. I find myself sitting and admiring the craftsmanship put into this beautiful Walnut console. From any angle it is nothing short of amazing. I spent hours and hours searching the internet and city I live in for a Media console and could not find anything that peaked my curiosity unit I found Standout Designs. All said and done ... the ordering process, manufacturing, shipping and delivery was nothing short of exceptional and such a WONDERFUL experience. The most amazing part of this process was how my request for a custom modification to allow my center speaker to fit into the console was meet with enthusiasm and they accepted my input graciously, while I thought I would be in a fight. Just nothing short of drop dead amazing!!! Well done guys ... Well Done!
My Haven 82 inch in Espresso exceeded my expectations. I'm impressed with the quality, and particularly pleased with the rear of the unit. The rear is well-built, hides all the wires beautifully, and could not be easier to take off and put back on.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. We are overjoyed. Thank you again, you went above and beyond to earn our business and I so appreciate you. This piece is a breathtaking beautiful.
Having purchased a new large screen television we began looking for a nice looking, functional console. To our dismay we could not find one that we considered quality so we started looking online. We have never ordered furniture online so we considered this a gamble. We cannot stress how happy we are with our purchase! The walnut unit with smoked glass doors complimented our bamboo floors perfectly. All of our electronic equipment and cords disappeared through the numerous detachable panels in the rear of the cabinets. It is so easy to position everything due to the fact the unit is on wheels. The delivery also was seamless. Beautiful,functional,and of highest quality and best of all Made in the USA! Love it. will give it a 5+
I am very pleased. The media console is everything I had imagined. The quality and look are both exceptional. The level of service from Standout Designs was excellent throughout the process.
Just wanted to say the console is exceptional. The electronic equipment installers even remarked on the quality and how functional the piece is.
I love my new stand. Its awesome. It is one of the nicest pieces of furniture that I have every owned. Aside from the beauty the functionality is beyond anything I have owned for this purpose. The pop off backs are soooo great. When my wife saw it (the ultimate test) she said that everything we buy in the future should be this nice. Plus, it arrived in perfect shape so kudos to the shipper. Driver was super nice.
There is an awesome thoughtful design in this product including the cable management features. Love how the rear panels easily detach and the wheels will really make A/V hookups easy. Even with the black finish the wood grain shows through which is very nice. I am very pleased with my Haven EX 82. Thanks for all of your help.
I really couldn't be happier with this purchase. This is a lovely piece of furniture. Everything from the fit and finish to the smell is first rate. You really are making a quality item and I highly recommend it to whomever will listen.
We are extremely happy with the media console. It is a gorgeous piece of furniture! I wish y'all would make other types of furniture too! It arrived in great shape and the two gentlemen who delivered it were so nice - and very careful with the delivery. A few friends have been over since we got it - and it's the first thing they commented on when they walked in the great room. It really is a beautiful piece - and even more so because it was made in the USA! If we hear of anyone who needs a media console - we will definitely give them your name!
You guys make a great product and that is rare these days. I love the console. The design especially where it concerns ease of use with the removable panels, wire run gaskets, custom shelves, ventilation, etc. is simply world class. Your console sells for a premium price but the excellent design makes it a great value. I am very happy with my purchase.
I am very happy with our purchase. It took some doing to get my husband to spend this kind of money but he is happy with the area to put all his toys. The quality is everything I wanted and am so glad we did not settle on a lesser quality piece of furniture. I'm glad I did my homework online and found your site. We don't buy furniture very often so glad we invested in a piece that will be a permanent fixture in our home.
I couldn't be happier with the media console purchased from Standout Designs - a name that is quite fitting in describing your furniture. I searched for many months to replace a wall unit that accommodated my old and very small (by today's standards) TV. It was an expensive piece of furniture that is quite lovely and I felt sad needing to replace it. For that reason I wouldn't settle for anything less than an outstanding _design. The quality, the workmanship, the attention to detail is everything I hoped for. As for the delivery process, it couldn't have been easier or gone more smoothly...and thanks for accommodating my preference for delivery dates, etc. All in all, I wish you made other furniture.
Your service is amazing. We love the cabinet. Wood is beautiful, design is simple and clean but fits our 1920's home. All our electronics fit in perfectly. Thanks to Debra for her time and caring. Best feature: American made.
Well pleased with quality and delivery parameters.
Design = outstanding. Materials = outstanding. Build = outstanding. Customer service = very good (I'd suggest maybe something on your website that allows customers to check progress). Love this design! Plenty of room for electronics in both side cabinets and even behind the middle drawers! I have tons of electronics in it, including a huge 100 lbs amplifier. The cooling is mandatory for me and your product certainly has it. I will recommend and would definitely buy again. Thank you for CRAFTSMANSHIP! :)
I searched at all of the major furniture companies trying to find a console that could fit all of my AV equipment, finally my wife suggested I search for a company that specializes in manufacturing consoles. After searching several sites I found Standout Designs, they offer products that not only could fit all of my equipment, but were crafted amazingly well. I went with the Haven EX 72 in black ash. It looks beautiful and I was impressed with the overall quality.
Please do not hesitate to IM, email or call Standout Designs with any questions you may have. Customer service is outstanding! Very prompt, helpful and knowledgeable.
I would certainly recommend Standout Designs to Family and Friends and I would purchase from them again.
I have to say that overall Im very impressed with the well thought-out design, beautiful material and quality craftsmanship of this unit. And, Im really glad I have a piece made in America by Americans! Im very happy with my purchase.
Thank you for a beautiful piece of furniture. I opted for the white glove delivery and couldnt be more pleased with the service. The gentlemen from ABF were great to deal with. I was extremely impressed with the packaging and had a high confidence level that there would be no damage. Once placed in my living room I checked the piece from top to bottom and couldnt find a single flaw. The design and functionality of your furniture is second to none. I scoured the internet looking for purpose built AV furniture. It is not as easy as one would think particularly given the size of my power amp and number of components. Based upon all my research and reviews I decided to go ahead with the order and I couldnt be happier. The design, craftsmanship and materials had me sold but to be able to support a local family business (Pittsburgh and Harrisburg are close enough right?) and American workers was a huge bonus. It wasnt the cheapest option but was the best option. I dont often review products but I will certainly will for this piece. Your company will be my go-to recommendation to anyone looking for quality AV furniture. All the best and please keep up the great work.
Beautiful furniture - well-made, the finish quality is very impressive, the moving parts run smoothly; I particularly like the removable rear sections that allow access for components and for connections, and there are multiple routings to discretely run cables. One caution - the furniture is heavy (a good thing - it's solid wood), so, if you have stairs leading to where you will be using it, consider the White Glove delivery service, or be sure to have a couple of strong people available!
This furniture is reassuringly solid, well designed and well finished. I don't know how much control you have over the delivery, but even that was surprisingly careful and considerate, (having dealt other dump and run services). So everything arrived in pristine condition. I easily wired the various components together and was happy to see this is one of the few cabinets with adequate depth to contain the protruding AV plugs, enabling the tidy panel closure in the back.
I am absolutely thrilled with my new media console! Its a beautiful piece of furniture, fine craftsmanship, and Im so happy I chose your product. The ordering process was painless, delivery was incredibly fast, and the white-glove service was professional and courteous. I will continue to rave to my friends and family about what a great product you have.
We received our Majestic EX70W (Expresso on Cherry) just before July 4th and thank Standout for being able to co-ordinate things with the ABF White Glove Delivery folks so that it arrived a few days earlier than would have happened otherwise.
I did several hours of research and reading about this firm and their product, including working my way through an 11 page thread on the AVS forum where one guy had one shipped all the way to Portland, Oregon because he could not find anything in his local market of comparable value. In our case we had been looking around for close to 2 years to find something to replace what we had been purchased when 35 HD CRT screens were state of the art.

Need some exceptionally quiet fans to pull the heat away from your gear?. The Answer: has them if you want. How about cloth or glass or wood options for the doors? The Answer has them. Oh and what about that Center Speaker.The Answer has the room. How about nice wheels to be able to pull the unit from the wall.The Answer has them available. Then there is the part about No Particle Board. The Answer: has none, it is made with good old American Hardwood. In short The Answer is The Answer for those of us looking for a quality item to put our big screen TVs on and to tuck away all the gear that makes Home Theater something special.
We love the console. Its exactly what we were looking for and the finish and build construction are absolutely wonderful. The absolute best part is the ability to roll it out and remove the back panels to get at all the wiring connections. Were so pleased with the unit. Delivery went well, although, due to our work schedule and the available delivery times, I actually picked the unit up from freight distribution center, instead of trying to coordinate a time _ worked out much better for us in the long run. The packing was sturdy and protected the unit very well. No issues at all with the condition upon arrival. You guys were great to deal with, great responsiveness, communication and follow-up. Were so happy we ended up buying the console from Standout!
One of the fears that any buyer has of spending this kind of money is that you are doing it sight unseen and hoping for the best. This is definitely one of those times where things paid off in spades. I had researched this stand extensively and mainly relied on the comments of others on forum sites such AVSforum.com. I was more comfortable with it than my wife. But once we got it, any fears quickly disappeared. It is larger than she expected but she loves how durable and sturdy it looks. It's obvious that a lot of care went into its design. It looks SO much better than our old unit. I thought that our 65" TV would look silly on it until we upgrade to our planned 88" screen but I couldn't have been more wrong. The TV looks VERY nice in the center of the unit!
My search for the "perfect" TV stand started with my very large Klipsch RC-64ii center speaker. Getting something that would work with that was priority number one. #2 was taking care of "all of those cables". A huge THANK YOU for your cable management system. Not only was I able to contain over 60% of the cables inside the stand, but I was also able to gain back valuable space between the console and my back wall. And thank you for your built-in wheels! While the console was a little difficult to move around during physical placement (since the wheels only go back and forth), I have already been behind the unit a few times just because it is much easier now than ever before. Before I used unsightly "Moving Men" solutions to be able to move my previous unit. Now, I can easily get back there, do what I need, and then move it back to the exact same spot (which I'm kind of particular about).
I had previously contacted you about deals and specials. I was treated with warm regards and that only solidified my desire to place a future order. This is an instance where your great service directly resulted in a sale.
The TV console is perfect. Great quality. Delivery was perfect as well.
I love the media console. It was so nice to have it arrive and see what good quality it is. So many of the furniture items out there today are terrible quality. Standout designs as far as I can tell make great products. As you can tell, I am very happy with it. The quality is excellent as are the features. Delivery was exceptional. Customer service is outstanding as well. My entire experience was excellent.
I could have not had a better experience and am completely satisfied with my standout media console. From the website, the ordering process, to the shipping; it was all top notch. Not to mention the great deal I received.
We are quite happy with our Standout Designs media console which is nicely engineered and solidly constructed of high quality materials in the USA very cool! Moreover, we were truly impressed with your companys website, ordering process, follow-up communications / instructions as well as the packaging and delivery of the product in only a few days! Absolutely one of the best on-line ordering experiences we have ever had and well be sure to talk about your company as guests admire this beautiful piece of furniture well done!
I finally got it set up and I just love it! First rate build quality! Best money I spent in a long time. Just wantedto tell u how happy I am!!!!
Console arrived in perfect condition and is absolutely beautiful. It actually looks much better than it does on the web site and it looks terrific there.
Your product is absolutely first class and I love it! No problems and great service and design!
My Horizon Console unit arrived this afternoon at our new residence, as promised. The "white glove" service was fine - very professional, friendly, on time, and top notch. I can recommend them to you. Piece looks great, fine craftsmanship, no dents or flaws. My wife likes it a lot, and that is the acid test.
The craftsmanship of this console is outstanding. Solid wood, and dovetailed joints. I really liked the black ash color as it matches identically (color and grain) to my speakers. I have Polk Audio speakers and it looks like the pieces of wood were carved from the same tree. This was a huge plus. The console doors do not slam shut, instead closing gently. The hinges they use have tons of adjustments, so you can adjust as needed to get the perfect close. The drawer includes dividers so you can size it for DVDs, Blu Ray, games, etc.
The ordering process and freight delivery was very easy. The only issue I had was that the clips they sent to hold the glass in place were too small, and the glass wobbled slightly. An email to the address on their website was sent on a Sunday, and I received a response within a few hours, saying they would ship the correct clips. A few days later, the correct clips arrived, and were installed, and now its flawless. Great customer service.
One last thing: their packaging of the console was ridiculously good. They ship directly on a pallet, and the console is foam wrapped, then plastic wrapped, then encased in cardboard, and then put into a box, which is then strapped to the pallet. They sent me instructions to unbox and unwrap everything prior to signing the delivery slip, and I did. The ABF freight guy said it was wrapped better than most things he delivers. He was right. It was flawless. No damage, or even a dent in the box, or in any of the packaging materials.
I just wanted to say that my husband and I are so impressed with your time and dedication to us regarding the console. It's so rare to see such wonderful dedicated customer service. We really love the console it is such a beautiful piece.. It has been such a pleasure dealing with standout design and we will definitely recommend your company to anyway looking for a console, but more importantly for the time and dedication you spend with your customers.
The fit and finish is excellent, the looks are terrific, Sunrise on Cherry is the look I was looking for and it's absolutely Beautiful! The way Standout Designs ships these from the factory is very thought out and a shipping company would really have to try hard to damage this in shipping. They do a excellent job in every aspect of the sale and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!!! I know some people will look at the price and look for something less expensive but I doubt after you buy one you will ever think this is anything but a bargain!
I just wanted to send you a note to say thanks for all your help getting my Haven. I have been meaning to let you know that the cabinet is beautiful, you were right about the grain in the wood, it is awesome. The attention to detail is a rare thing to see these days. I put a 70-inch Sharp 4K TV on top with high end electronics to numerous to mention inside driving 11 speakers. I still tell people about my visit to the main office during my summer trip to PA. It was worth it.
I have had my eye on your website for quite some time. The new cabinet looks great in our home. It is absolutely beautiful.
The media console (Haven EX 72 , black on Ash and Natural Walnut) was delivered damage free and on time. Minimal assembly was required, and the instructions were very concise and clear. The cabinet itself, in addition to being a very handsome piece of furniture, has an excellent design, and the quality of finish and construction seems first rate. I appreciated the thoughtful details like the concealed wheels that make movement easier, drawer dividers, passthroughs for cords and speaker wire, venting, etc that promise ease of use.
I am also appreciative of the larger space designed for center channel speakers.most on the market are undersized and not built for a robust center channel speaker, and I was delighted when I saw the same center channel speaker I own featured prominently in place on your website.
Kudos, I hope you inspire other American companies to deliver on the promise of well-designed and executed premium products designed to last for decades.
This is my second Standout (I own a Horizon EX 72 as well). The furniture is beautiful and well made, and delivery was just great. You folks really know how to pack these units so they arrive in perfect condition!
I purchased the Black on Ash 72" model with tinted glass door inserts and the optional center speaker cover. It is truly a beautiful, well-made, intelligently-designed piece of furniture. It arrived in flawless condition and the delivery service was exceptional. Minimal assembly required.
This is a very well thought out product. I am very happy with it and admire the built-in delivery pricing. Yours is FAR superior to my previous media console from Pottery Barn.
We are very happy with the quality of the media console. There is always trepidation in purchasing something of this value sight unseen, but we are fully satisfied with the product. The removable backs and numerous ports for cords made the wiring process far easier than it was with our previous media cabinet from Crate and Barrel.
We really like the unit and am glad for all the access holes to run between the compartments. I have many wires that run between them. I even used the drawer to house the monster power center and keep it out of sight. My Wife loves the finish.
Excellent stand, extremely well built, this will last more than my lifetime. All of my components and cords fit well, with space to breath. Customer service was fantastic
I am very happy with this piece of A/V furniture. It was delivered on-time and in perfect condition. ABF Freight was excellent. I have been a home theater enthusiast for many years and have known about Standout Designs from contacts I have in the high-end audio/video world but this is the first of your consoles I have personally owned. I am very happy with it and know of nothing else comparable at this price.
I rarely comment online but I feel compelled to express how happy I am with this TV stand. I looked at a lot of TV stands before buying this one. I am very happy with my purchase. The quality of the wood and finish is impressive. The stand is extremely solid and heavy. It looks beautiful. After buying the stand I also bought a grill for the top-center cabinet. The grill covers the center speaker. I like the clean look of the stand with the grill. Here is another nice feature: the back panel is removable. As a result I did not have to rewire my receiver when placing the receiver in the stand. Instead, I removed the back panel, placed the receiver in the stand, and put the back panel on. This probably saved me one hour of time rewiring all the components. The support from the people at Standout Designs is excellent. They were quick to respond to questions about the grill. Finally, I would like to say that I try to buy products made in the USA in order to support people in the USA. It makes me happy knowing that this TV stand was built in the USA.
Horizon EX arrived without any damage, impressively well packed. We couldn't be more pleased. What a thoughtful design! Here's a place where you definitely get what you pay for, not inexpensive, but well worth every cent.
Excellent product. Phenomenal customer service!
I recently purchased the Haven EX82 inch Media Console in Sunrise on Cherry. I researched this purchase for several months both online and by visiting local furniture stores. The construction and finish more than met my expectations. There is plenty of room for my audio and video equipment and additional storage for media as well. The ability to conceal all the wires was also important to me. I was relatively simple to I opted for the white glove delivery; two delivery men removed all the packaging, hauled it away and brought it into my family room.
It's much more than a TV stand; it's a great looking piece of furniture. I'm very happy with the product and the outstanding service I received during the purchase process.
Buying a media console was something that I put a lot of research into. It was only after searching around online for media consoles that I heard of Standout Designs and their products. My first communication with them was many months ago - I requested free wood samples. The samples quickly arrived, and I was impressed with the quality. When you combine this with their customer service, I didn't hesitate ordering a Haven. The unit arrived only one week after I ordered, and there was plenty of packaging to make sure nothing was damaged. Alan (one of the Standout employees) was notified that I signed for my shipment, and e-mailed me just to make sure everything was okay. Setting up all of my components within the console is really easy - the back panels just pop off with a gentle pull. Overall, this is an amazing piece of furniture from a company that truly values quality and customer service.
super happy, great workmanship. I am so proud of it. matches my living room furniture set.
Thank you for the quick processing of my order. Upon delivery it was obvious the furniture was well prepared for shipment. When we opened the box and got a look at the beautiful furniture we were very satisfied with our choice in purchasing this Standout designs media console.
No problems at all. It was exceptionally well packaged and shipped, no damage at all and packing looked pristine. The finish looks great and love the functionality of it.
I started looking for a quality Entertainment Center several years ago. I was looking for a unit that first and foremost looked good, was made of solid wood with a beautiful wood grain, provided space for the high end components and accommodated the wires (all 12 gauge) necessary to drive a surround sound system with a dozen studio quality speakers. After many evenings spent searching the web, I keep coming back to Standout Designs. I was impressed enough with what I saw on the web and from the free wood samples that I received that I decided to visit the showroom and actually look at the Haven 72" in person. I choose the unit in Sunrise Cherry. I have had the cabinet for almost a month and must say it outshines my new 70-inch 4K TV. The wood grain on the drawers reminds me of an exotic burl. The fit and finish of the doors, drawers, and removable back panels is rarely seen today. All areas of the cabinet are finished to a high level. I would highly recommend this cabinet to anyone.
After literally several years of watching, looking and evaluating consoles for my home theater system components with 7.1 surround sound to replace the open rack being used, I discovered Standout Designs and was quickly convinced that their console would meet my extensive and various requirements. Received the Standout Designs Haven EX 72w Black on Ash Media Console a few weeks ago. The concept, design, construction and functionality of this console are exceptional. The array of available options and more than ample space provide enough flexibility that a configuration for any need and desire should be possible. I opted for the single center bottom drawer configuration, cooling fans for both sides (neither of which has yet been needed but are readily available just in case), an extra vented shelf (which also has not yet been needed), center grill black fabric and gray-tinted door glass. Since this console is solid wood, it is heavy, as would be expected, but the hidden wheels enable it to be easily rolled forward and backward for rear access and area cleaning. The snap-on/pull-off, absolutely no tools required, back panels are another great and ingenious feature, as are the adjustable vented wood shelves and numerous wire chases. Additionally, it is a beautiful piece of furniture that suits itself to any environment, formal or informal. The packaging for shipping was outstanding and would have required extreme mishandling for any console damage to occur. Even the delivery personnel commented on how well it was packaged.
Customer service was the best that I have ever experienced. My initial contact was from Debra, who was eager to assist in any way possible. Then, I had some questions on a Saturday and e-mailed them not expecting a reply until the following Monday. Shortly after the e-mail was sent, I unexpectedly received a reply from Alan, followed by several more e-mails from me and immediate replies from Alan that same Saturday. I pulled the trigger the foll...
My wife said I was crazy for buying such an expensive tv stand, but you would have to drag it out of the house over her dead body now that she has seen it. When it arrived I was impressed with the way it was packaged. The truck driver unloaded it on a two wheel cart and sat it in my garage in just a few minutes. There really is no assembly, just putting in the shelves and back covers. I realized the fan I ordered had not arrived, but Stand Out Designs was very prompt in locating and sending to us. Although we have other fine furniture, this is definitely a stand out.
I was searching for a new TV/AV stand for my new 80 Sony TV. It took me a while to find Standout Designs and their outstanding products. Their Web site is clean, simple and easy to navigate. Ordering process was straightforward. The BEST of all is their superb customer services (and their products of course). I had a couple questions on their products, and ran into some issues with the delivery company. The customer services team (Alan and Debra) went out of their way to proactively address and resolve them for me and kept me posted all the time. I really appreciate it and am very impressed.
The product I ordered (Haven EX 82-inch Solid Wood TV Stand - Black Ash) is awesome and arrives safely (their packing is great). The design is simple, clean, and totally functional (details, details). The product (wood) quality is top rated. The assembly process was very easy and only took us less than 30 mins. My wife and I love it as it goes very well with our AV equipments and the theme in our room. The whole purchase experience and the product are 5 stars across the board.
Better yet, their products are Made in USA, which are so much more preferable and a priority in our shopping/purchases in general.
If you think the Horizon 72" console looks awesome on Standout Designs website, wait till you see it in your home. Three words come to mind: Smooth, Effortless, and Craftsmanship. The storage drawer is exceptionally smooth. The doors operate effortlessly. The design, the fit, the functionality. That's craftsmanship! From the 1st phone call to the delivery, to it's utilization. It's all been a pleasure. The best customer service ever! Thanks Standout Designs.
All is well with our new console. Delivery was great, product as expected.
I`m very happy, everything works perfectly and it looks great ! The delivery was outstanding, the driver help me get it inside and was very professional !!!
Well constructed, and easy to move (sits on soft wheels - no marks on the hard wood floors). Easy to take the pieces off to put the equipment into it
Got the stand and I could not be happier. It's fits well with all my components and TV. First rate customer service. I am a CS director for a large video game company- I know good when I see it.
Having previously owned a Standout Designs Stand, I knew that the company and the product was "top notch. I was originally going to get the 72" version but opted for the larger. It holds my 80" TV very well. Lots of room for my Denon flagship receiver and other equipment.
I ordered and received the center grill cover and will be ordering the fan kits soon. (Shipping would have been covered if ordered with stand). This thing is Beautiful, Functional, and Solid!
The only thing I would change is to add a way of leveling of the rear portion. This is easily solved by using a small piece of carpet or other material under the back casters. (Normally a little tilt front to back is no big deal from an uneven floor but with forty plus inches of vertical TV height of an eighty inch TV it gets magnified).
I now have enjoyed my Haven unit for almost 2 months. In that short period, I have found it to be superior to the BDI unit that I had used for over 3 years. Aside from the fact that my Standout Designs Haven is a finely crafted piece of furniture, its sturdy, intelligent design optimally facilitates my electronics and the associated wiring. Consequently, I have re-arranged my equipment several times with great ease.
Additionally, I cannot say enough about the outstanding customer service Standout Designs provided (pre-purchase, defect resolution, and accessories orders). Their customer service is on par with Zappos. I will heartily recommend Standout Designs to my family and friends.
Recently I purchased the Haven EX 82-inch TV stand, which by the way calling it a TV stand is a insult to the fine piece of furniture. Indeed this media center really shows off the Sharp 80" LED TV which sits on it. I can not tell you the number of times we have had friend come over and tell us how beautiful the piece is.
And its built to last a "life time". I was shocked on how every detail was looked after. The craftsmanship is really superior to anything else on the market and I know I had been searching for the right piece for 6 months. The one I purchased was the BLACK ON ASH and with my black tv surrounding (let me know if you want me to send a picture to you) it just disappears from view. Easy to move (my wife loves that) and with all the room in the world for all your electronics devices this one should be at the top of your list.
I give this a 5 STAR rating and the price is easy on the wallet.
