To Hang a TV or use a stand
I am finishing my basement. My TV will be under some duct work (that will be soffited and finished with drywall). This makes the floor to ceiling height in this area about 6 feet.
First, does this height restriction under a soffit pose any issues? From what I have seen, for a 60" TV, the TV height should be around 33" plus or minus.
Second, being I need to have the game consols and DVD player, etc in my TV area, is there any benefit to hanging it on the actual wall? I know it may look cool if the DVD and game consols were remote and all you see is a hanging TV, but I do not want to get into all the complications of housing these remotely. Therefore, is it recommended to just place the TV on one of those table type stands were you can put the DVD player and equipment on the shelves.
I have all my walls exposed now, so wanted to figure this out prior to sheetrocking.
