Whalen Furniture AVTEC48-TC High Audio Video Tower : Great product, well made, sleek design, looks and works great!

Perfect for my audio system. Affordable and good looking 10+.

Beautiful and sturdy but not easy to get together. Read this review and after you purchase this thing come back and read it again. This item is not getting four stars because of how easy it was to put together. I have a masters degree and have rarely struggled to assemble things, i often do not even need instructions however the person that designed this product never put it together themselves for sure. . Even though it says to put the suction cups on last put those devils on before you put this item together. It says you use the allen wrench to assist with the suction cups but i ended up using a long screwdriver looking item to help force these cups into their holes. It was not a good situation.

Great product, well made, sleek design, looks and works great. Very pleased with this purchase. I wanted to buy a tall tv stand for my bedroom because my bed sits up very high and i didn’t want to have to bolt the tv into the wall. I was a little worried about the quality of the product given most furniture on amazon is crap particle board and paper thin metal. I am very impressed with the sturdiness of the stand. The curved pieces are real wood, not particle board and the metal frame is very solid. On the box it says ‘do not use as a tv stand’ but it definitely still works as one. I put my 40′ tv on the top shelf and plan on buying a 50′ and putting it up there. Each shelf is rated for 50 lbs and i believe it. The black pieces of glass for each shelf look great and assembling everything was pretty straightforward.

Great looking, highly functional, great value. . Very nice looking piece of furniture a) for diy assembly, and b) for the price. Assembly instructions are clear. Just be sure to read them over a couple of times. I was able to put it together by myself in an evening. Wish the box were easier to open, but i’m happy the contents were well protected. No chipping or dings on any of the parts. The manufacturer includes spare hardware, a nice touch for those of us who may drop a bolt or two. If i didn’t already have a wall unit, i would look into the matching pieces.

Whalen Furniture AVTEC48-TC High Audio Video Tower, 48-Inch : The assembly on this wasnt too bad, just make darn sure youve got the glass centered and sittin against the rear bar before setting it all the way down. Those suction cups (not oiled) do not allow for lateral movement after the glass is pressed down. But the result, when paired with the whalen corner desk and z-line manager chair is awesome. Awesome, if your obsessive about everything in a room matching, that is.

I purchased this tower quite some time ago when there weren’t yet any reviews for it, so i figured that it was a bit of a gamble. Well i can say now, that its a fantastic product. It arrived in i believe two (maybe three) separate packages, but all at the same time. I assembled it in a little less than 2hours or so. When assembling, just be sure that you tighten the screws well enough to hold, but not too tight as to damage the holes. Other than that, assembly was a breeze. The tower is extremely sturdy and holds all of my home theater equipment very well. Five shelves, each at different intervals. Real wood with a nice brush finish (its 1′ plywood, but unless someone is actually inspecting it closely, you really just cannot tell).

The rack was shipped in a very tightly organized box with well placed foam blocks to keep things from rattling around and to protect the glass plates. It’s heavy at one end where the glass plates are. 1-if you’re gonna move the box, use a hand truck2-when you open the box, pay attention to the up arrows and lay it flat to open it. 3-the plastic pouch with the bolts— important– don’t empty everything out. Leave everything in their individual pockets and follow the instructions. If everything is there, when you are finished you will have one of everything left extra. 4- as you put everything together. The instructions tell you: don’t tighten the bolts until you’ve completely assembled it.

I usually don’t rate stuff mainly because of lock of time, but i figured it’s not fair to the seller and to other customers so i decided to go ahead and start to rate some items here and there. I received this item yesterday and went ahead and assembled it right away. The item is very well packed and it comes with spanish and english instruction on how to set it up and when i say both languages i mean it actually had two separate manuals. The instructions where super easy to follow and every single piece was labeled and numbered which made it easier to put together. I’m a lady who has to either pay or stragle to assemble items and this one was easy and fun to put together. The unit is beautiful after put together. I’m using it as a tv stand for my family room, it is simple and very elegant which is why i’m so inlove with it.

Easy to assemble – and solid after assembly. I was a big concerned when the package arrived via fedex as there was a big gash along one side of the box. Fortunately, nothing was damaged. Once i got the box open and found the assembly instructions, things proceeded without issue. I should say that i hate assembling anything and was not looking forward to what was ahead of me. But the packaging of the components and step-by-step instructions made it simple. My family cleared the room, anticipating sailor-like swear words. The instructions also advise to have a friend help you – but i did it alone.
