If you're actually looking for a true media stand, this is not for you. It's not deep enough to hold a standard home theater receiver. This is more for looks rather than true functionality when it comes to that use. Granted, it's a very nice, well-made piece of furniture, but it just shouldn't be marketed as a media cabinet. Like the other reviewer stated, it's more of a credenza. I do thank the customer service staff for allowing a return on it. Great service all the way.
