I'm about to take delivery on a Sampo 34whd5 from Ubid. I figure, if I put it on a heavy duty cart with bigger than average wheels, I can move it back against the wall when listening to music, roll it closer for casual viewing from mid- resolution sources and right up in my face for the big screen effect on HDTV ( from my DTC-100) and DVDs. Maybe the cart would be tall enough to accomodate my very tall Alon C-2 center channel speaker as well so that the dialogue will stay with the screen. Granted the "in my face" position will partially block direct sound from the front L+R speakers,but, I may be able to live with some sound compromise in favor of a bigger subjective picture.

Who has some kind of variable viewing distance that they change regularly and how do you do it?

Seems easier to me to move my chair back and forth.

Sometimes i move my setup around but am usually about 10 feet from my 27" Wega.

You may want to check out www.anthro.com.

Anthro makes computer carts and I use their printer cart, which is 36" wide, 35" tall (so I can get the display closer to eye level). It is guaranteed to handle 150# printers and the Anthro catalog has a picture of 3 big guys standing on it so I think it will hold a lot more. It has large casters and is very mobile - even on carpet. You can put several shelves on it to hold the DVD player, VHS Player, cable box, Replay TV, etc. I even have powered AR speakers on my anthro printer cart.

The printer cart has 4 vertical steel bars and the computer cart has only 3 so my preference for a TV is the printer cart and 36" wide will hold most displays. I love the computer cart for my computer.

Both get an A+ for functionality but they look like computer or printer carts and not an antique piece of art. IMHO, it is infinitely better than something that you might find at a furniture store because I have made that mistake already.

Good luck.

Do you really think you'll move it though? I know if I had something like that setup I'd end up just leaving it in the back position because it would be a PIA to move around everytime I wanted to change sources. If I want to be closer I usually just lie on the floor on a bean bag or something.
