Whether you are in the market for a large or small media cabinet to house all of your home entertainment components, there are a few things to consider. You need one that has adjustable shelving to fit all your space needs. You should also look for a media cabinet that allows for ventilation or air flow so that none of your components overheat, and thirdly, easy wire and cord management is an important feature that is often times overlooked.

Of course, a small cabinet will provide you with less of a surface to place your TV on. Fortunately this is less of a problem than it would have been years ago, when all TV’s were CRT’s.
