Entertainment center/media console buying help?

The husbot and I really wanted this media console from CB2
for our new TV and electronic whatnots. It was in stock and ready to ship the other day, but now it's listed as "Estimated in mid-March." Knowing how backorders go, it could be sooner or later than that, or just never materialize at all. Can you help us find something similar that is available now?

What we like about the CB2 console:
-the width (61")
-the height (22")
-the medium wood color
-the price ($600 + $100 shipping)
We could be flexible on any of the above features, but not too far in any direction. For example, we don't want to spend $2000 or get a 36" high super dark brown closed-looking model. But we could get something longer and lighter, slightly taller and a little more expensive, and so on. $1000 is probably our max price, but we might consider a little more if everything else is just right.
We've looked (online) at Crate & Barrel, Macy's, West Elm, Pottery Barn, and Room & Board, but everything seems to be too dark, too tall, too narrow, or too expensive. Crate & Barrel or Room & Board are good examples of our style, with maybe middle of the road quality (affordable but not IKEA particle board). Can you think of any other places we should look, or recommend any specific pieces?
