Oh my lord, what a beautiful hifi stand. I used wood polish on the shelving and cable tidy and the sheen is amazing. I love how secure the shelves are, my hifi is very heavy. I’m ecstatic at the overall quality. Please note, i don’t know where the previous customer’s were looking when reading the instructions, but they were perfect. They did tell you which screws to use and where. I certainly didn’t make their mistake of using the wrong screws. Everything is numbered and lettered. Ignore what they have said, the instructions are spot on.
Once built this is a fine hifi unit that is strong and looks good. However i have docked a star because the instructions are not clear as to which is up on the rear panel. You guessed it i built mine upside down and it wasn’t until i got to assembling the shelves that i noticed the mistake. The diagram is not clear but to help others not do what i did. Make sure that the cable hole that is spaced further apart than those of the others is at the bottom. Other than that it builds up well.
Why pay hundreds of pounds when you can have this. Just wish they did it in white.
Was initially disappointed but once assembled its really sturdy and looks goodgirlfriend hates it but who cares.
Smart and sturdy and does the job its meant to do very well. Very vague and hard to follow. Unfortunately due to the hard to follow instructions i accidentally put the wrong screw straight through the top which is rather sad.
Would have been better if they had told you which screws went where watch out for the top shelf put the wrong screws in there and they will go straight through the veneer ( as they did for me) but the unit looks good and robust had plenty of good comments about a it.
Box looked a bit battered but package was ok. Easy to assemble (with thanks to the other reviews here). Top of unit height perfect for vinyl player.
The tops of back and frame should have “top” marked on them to assist assembly.
I’m not sure why the product photo is of the smaller 4 shelf version but the tow600 was fairly easy to assemble and has plenty of space for my hi-if, cable box, games console and a telly on top.
Very easy to assemble singlehanded. Excellent quality materials. Looks good ;being strong without being heavy looking.
Brilliant product really sturdy holds alot and over all looks amazingi would recomed it to everyone and all my friends.
My own fault, i looked at the picture and thought this would be ideal for my needs, however when i opened the box i immediately knew it was going to be a problem. You see, the photo clearly shows a 4 x shelf model, but this item has 6 x shelves and was way to big for me. Photographs should match description, i can understand slight differences ( colour etc) but this is stretching the rule book. Had the item been a 4 x shelf as i thought, then i’d have given it 5 stars, quality is good and it looks nice, the 3 stars are for the wrong photo being used.
