Black has been back for some time where TVs are concerned, so it's only right that Alphason has launched the Alto Nero AV stand in a mirror-black gloss finish

Suitable for screens up to 37in, the Alto Nero is the latest AV rack from Alphason Designs. And while of course it will look to major on build and performance, the company is making much of its black gloss finish.

Claiming to have used a 'unique colouring process, the Alto Nero's glass offers the deepest black colour with a mirror smooth surface'. We're almost getting in to the 'blackest black' territory of Pioneer...

The stand has a hang-on style bracket for your TV that can be tilted to the perfect angle, while you're also given two shelves for AV equipment – both of which can support equipment up to 20kg – made from BS-standard safety glass.

Underneath all this is a glass plinth that can itself hold a substantial slab of AV kit. Integral cable management also comes as standard, so there's no excuse for a tangled mess of cabling behind your TV.

The Alto Nero ALT50/2-BLK, to give the support its full name, is available now for around £299. For more information see the Alphason Designs website here
