Thanks!
I keep the settings at a sane level. Some people really like that LCD look but I don't.
Of course, in the evening it is just surreal and you want to put your hand through the window in your wall.

Yup. After moving to a small Studio Apartment about 6 years ago, I decided not to use a Center Speaker anymore.

I was looking at them as well... how do you like them for music and movies? Anything else you can compare them to?

It is the Bush TV Stand for Flat-Panel TVs up to 62" - Black Model: VS74962 it looks really nice.The one thing I do not care for is there is no support for the center of the glass only around the edge.So I not wanting to take a chance with my TH-50PX600U falling thru I cut some 1x2 and painted them gloss black and installed them under the glass where the Plasma sets just for a little more security.
Weight capacity for television set is 200 lbs for the silver one and why the black one states 165 lbs. when they are the same stand just different colors.
Got it at BestBuy

I love it.

I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-43TX Receiver which I use as pre/pro connected to a Rotel RMB-1095 Amplifier. The Rotel has a warm sound and the Paradigms are a bit in the bright side. So It's a perfect combination IMO. Pairing the Paradigms with bright Receivers/Amplifiers might sound harsh (too bright).

B&W DM601 S3 (My previous speakers) are very similar to the Studio 20's IMO.

Here's my Panny 600u setup. Other equipment:

Mac Mini HTPC w/external 500GB drive
Harmon Kardon 645 AV Receiever
Dish Network 622 PVR
Speakers are the Focal JMLab SibCub set

The stand is the Ikea Markor in dark brown stain. All in all, I'm very pleased with this setup. The Mac DVD player isn't as sharp as my old Samsung, but the convenience of having a nice movie collection on the hard drive more than makes up for it. The WAF for this setup is pretty high right now. There's still too many cables visible inside, but that's better than them being behind the old RPTV!

I notice that pedestal stand doesn't look like the more recent Industrial stands - is it an old pre-duckfoot stand from like 4 generations back? And if so did you paint it silver? It just doesn't look stock to me. I like the old stands because they easily hide the cables that run to the back of the plasma and they have a more fitting industrial look than the duckfoot and diamond-base Panasonic stands.

Very clean setup !

Great setups, guys!

Here's my TH-50PX50u. The cabinet doesn't get great ventilation, so I leave the doors wide open when the components are in use.

Maybe replace the glass with a metal mesh so you don't have to? (maybe screen door material on a frame?

You could also just drill out the back where no one would see.

More importantly however, people please, if we are starting a picture thread can we PLEASE not reply to every message with the original picture?

Not only does it waste bandwidth, but it also makes pages load slower.

When I figure out how to get good pictures from my PowerShot-S500 and my TH-50PH9Uk I will post. The pictures that I am taking do not give my PDP justice.

Here's my TH-50PX60U. Very nice set! for now we use the set's speakers. In a few weeks we will be installing some in-walls.

As you can see in the pic, we have 2 Equipment racks. One drives the plasma, and the other drives the Dedicated HT located in another room. No Wii for the HT!!!!!

Yup, many people don't like silver but I really don't mind it. I was actually planning to get the matching Premier J-29 stand (with less silver) but it was not tall enough for my taste. Too bad as the stands looks great:

I tried many ways and I thought it looks better with that curve.

It does look like the older Panasonic Stands but believe it or not I found that stand in the garbage. I spoke with the porter that was taking the garbge out and he said a tenant bougth the stand to be used with a Fujitsu Plasma. But it didn't fit so he decided to trow it away. Good for me.

When I got home I was very surprised to find out it fits Panasonic Plasmas perfectly.

I still don't know who's the manufacturer (Couldn't find a brand name anywhere).
I really like the fact It's made of aluminum (very light and sturdy) and as you mentioned it can hide the cables connected to the Plasma.

Thanks for the tips. Actually, I've thought about doing both, but the wife is kind of against altering the piece. It doesn't really bother me because I spend most of my time watching the beautiful images on the screen. It just doesn't photograph well with the doors wide open.

Joners- very, very nice. I see people on this board complaining about the aesthetics of the 60U, but combined with the stand you have it on, and the other colors in that room, that TV looks positively classy.

Whats funny is, the stand is meant for an LG DLP. It was in the local Buy & Sell for super cheap, only $100. For now it's in the living room, I'd like to get a dedicated HT in the basement going sometime. The wall color is way off in the picture, it's a lot darker in person.
