Recently got the wife to agree we NEED a 70-80" TV, but I have to pony up for a new entertainment center as well to keep her happy.  Not too excited about that part, as the stuff we have looked at previously STARTED in the $1,200 range.  Blah.  She wants one with the stand and the 2 towers on each side and the top piece.  A full blown wall cabinet basically, lol.

 

I was doing a little research today and noticed most the ones like she wants cannot fit a TV that big.  Which made me wonder how you guys are housing these bigger TV's.  

 

Hoping you guys can share some links, pricing and pictures.  Many thanks!

I find that visually the base has to be (much) wider than the set to look balanced to my eyes. I have a 75" Samsung which is about 66" wide. It sits on a credenza which is 88" wide and I think the combo looks great.

I got it on eBay and it wasn't cheap, but it's real furniture, solid cherry wood mid century and absolutely beautiful. If you search credenza on eBay you'll get about a zillion hits...

Obviously it doesn't have the two towers on the side so maybe it won't work for you and your wife. I'm not a fan of the two towers look (as opposed to The Two Towers which I love) but to each their own!

Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.
Double True!

Our friends have this for a 65" HDTV. But they do not have the thin storage cabinets shown at the sides.

It looks really nice. If you change TV sizes only the console that the TV sits on needs to be swapped for a different size. The top piece just spans whatever size you use. I'm not sure if they have a back panel because they do have the shelf above the TV & it holds the center channel speaker. So there's not much exposure to see the back panel and/or wall.

Fits the Vizio 80" perfectly end-to-end.

You might want to search or post that question in the rear projection forum. There's plenty of conversation there concerning stands for the 73" and 92" DLP's seeing that they can't be wall hung.

I've got this 83 inch stand for my 80 inch Vizio and I think it looks great with the Vizio's design: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008M8FKQ6/ref=ox_sfl_cart_mbc_s5?ie=UTF8&psc=1&serverToken=Obidos
