Wambold Furniture is introducing a line of "perfect fit" video cabinets, headed up by its 7442-12 designed for Mitsubishis new 42-inch tabletop HD/digital rear-projection television, model WT-42311.
Wambold's cabinetry for the fall debut of this $1,999 suggested retail TV, turns the set into furniture, which can diffuse any family member's objection to the look of a big, black — in this case silver — box.
The cabinet offers wood-framed glass doors that allow for remote control of components, adjustable shelves for up to six components, large cable ports for ease of cable transit and a speaker cloth panel.
The cabinet also features an extra deep interior that accommodates a large monitor and deep audio components. It is available in four finishes on oak and two on maple at a suggested retail of $799.
Wambold will begin shipping at the end of July. Mitsubishi said it expects to have the television in stores in August.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
