Help us resolve this components issue, please!
We were gifted a 36" television when the in-laws upgraded theirs. It's the Big Black Cube of televisions, and it never worked well for their space.
So now we have this behemoth downstairs and it's great and all, but the stand that accompanied it can't hold all of the components. We have the DVR sitting sideways on top of the subwoofer on the floor and two of the surround-sound speakers perched on top of the tv. That just isn't working.
Hubby and I agree that it doesn't make sense to buy an entertainment center to fit the Big Black Cube, because the next tv in that room will be a flat panel with completely different dimensions.
Hubby's suggestion: hang a shelf on the wall above the television and set the speakers and DVR on the shelf. I think that's a very bad idea for several reasons, but can't come up with a solution that's acceptable to him.
Does anyone have ideas for a compromise solution??
