the back of this unit is a hard cardboard panel that has a paper veneer that looks like the rest of the veneer. It has 4 premade holes (about 1" diameter) in total for your components cords. Because it is cardboard, you can cut it for more ventilation and you could omit it completely. It adds no structural support to the unit and you attach it with little nails.

This is a valid concern and an area I am watching closely. I have had the unit one day, and the back plate is typical cardboard with small 2" access holes. My amplifier/receiver produces considerable heat, and am monitoring internal cabinet temperature closely. I suspect needing to perform surgery with a sharp box cutter to open up the back of the cabinet. I have done this on previous enclosed units (including Hooker furniture), giving me peace of mind and ensuring the amplifier has room and air to breathe. [NOTE: And, as you know, enlarging the back plate also may ease viewing and selective swap-out of connectorts running to speakers, recorders, PCs, etc. I am a stickler for cord management, and pulling out the entire amplifier to access rear connections is not a pleasurable experience.]
