New A/V horizontal rack\furniture

Looking to replace an old Ashley Furniture media cabinet - dimensions 54.5" width x 22" height X 19.5" depth

Can go up to 80" width and more depth is fine but would like keeping height to 22" as I have a UN-144W TV wall mount above.

Thanks for any suggestions - want something sturdy with good air flow and easy connectivity to back panel.

Will house Denon X6500H, Oppo UDP-203, Apple TV 4K, Spectrum DVR box & Klipsch RC-62 II (Center) angled 4" up on wedges.

Currently 65" LG OLED above, want to be able to go to larger screen or even better, get projector & screen.

I have a 345 and love it. The Salamanders are very solid construction.

You could check out BDI, they make some nice looking units and have very solid construction as well

I would recommend casters or setting the unit on furniture sliders for easy access

Another vote for Salamander. Made in USA. Well-built, very flexible, lots of design options and upgrades, and very good customer support. Not inexpensive though. I have a Corsica, really like it.

Paradigm Prestige 85F and 55C; Side / Rear Surrounds: Totem Acoustic Tribe III / Tribe I; Amplification: D-Sonic M3a-2800-7 (7ch. x 400w)

Definitely appear to be well built and configurable. The Corsica's appear to be formidable.
