Audio furniture, like TV stands, come in an almost endless choice of designs, colors, materials, and finishes. If you’re not made of money though, you will want to choose ready-to-assemble (RTA) audio furniture that you assemble at home.
Just because you have to assemble your audio furniture doesn’t mean that it has to look cheap or incorporate cheap materials. There is plenty of high-end furniture out there that you can easily assemble yourself and the results will be beautiful and useful.
