Can i ask what size your tv is?
That's hilarious! I keep looking for new stands, but this one works for me and matches the speakers pretty nicely! I have the 50" version of the set--55" just would be too big for my room, I am sad to say.
Here are a few more pics with better light, including closeups of the cabling situation in the back, a better shot of the base, a pic showing how thin it is, etc.
Hope these are useful!

. Notice the glasses--you apparently have to charge them using the TV's USB ports and they only charge when the TV is on!
In reply to the other questions:
1 - The subwoofer is a 10" SVS Sub and it's glorious. I wish I could go bigger, but you can see, I don't have a lot of room.
2 - I have no problems with the center speaker being that close to the ground; I use the Audyssey setup and make manual adjustments to the crossover to take full advantage of the sub and have never been distracted by the center channel's position. My seating position is about 10-11' away so it works out.
Looking forward to seeing your pics!
