Spectral CL340BG-SW TV Stand for TVs up to 47-inch, Black
Great product but infrared doesnt go through the unit
Beautifully constructed item. German. If like me you have a very traditional house and accept technology for what it is and think it should not be dressed in nasty reproduction furniture but should stand proud, this is for you.
Does require assembly nous, i couldn't work it out for my Panasonic tv but company were very helpful and assisted and it took their engineer a couple of hours. Full marks for their UK support arm.
The big design fail is that the black unit comprises glass backed onto board. If, like me, you have any kind of set top box inside , you will find that the remote control will not function. Hence you will need to operate the unit with the door open, which is ugly and obviously not practical. It can be resolved I am told by buying an infra red repeater (I have not found one yet) but to leave this out of the design is astonishingly poor. It's like supplying a car but not including a key for the ignition. You wont be going anywhere for a while.
