I could use your help. I'm deciding between the 60" F8000 and the 60" F7500. The issue I have with the 60" F8000 is the stand. My entertainment center is only 51" wide, but, from what I understand, the stand for the 60" F8000 is 53" wide.
Offhand, maybe if the stand hangs off each end by an inch, that would be OK? OTOH, I wonder if those two inches are important because it appears that is part of the stand that curves back in front of the TV. So, it looks like it might be important for stability purposes.
EDIT: According to Crutchfield, the stand is 51 3/4" So, I'll have at most a total of 3/4" not supported. Is that close enough?
Second question. Currently, I have my center channel on the front of my entertainment center set right in front of the TV. My current TV stand is a few inches tall, so the center channel doesn't interfere with viewing the TV screen. However, with this TV, it seems that the TV is so low that a center channel placed in front of it will block the TV. Does that sound like that will happen? Am I forced to wall mount the center channel? Other options? Thanks!
