What Hi-Fi? Verdict

A heavyweight, yet usable design with a lot to like

Pros

  • + Decent bottom-end and control
  • + good detailing

Cons

  • - A little slow sonically

The Avion 8925 is a heavyweight piece of furniture. It has a tapered design, which allows it to be pushed back in to a corner – a fairly big corner, mind you.

Its straight-line castors require installing, as do the handles, but this is a nicely solid hi-fi cabinet.

Sonically it's a little slow on its feet compared with the class-leading Hi-Fi Racks Podium XL but there's not much else to gripe about, with decent bottom end control, and good detail recovery.
