Just got an Energy RC-LCR today, and it fits perfectly with about 1/2 inch on each side and 1/4 inch above.
It appears to be some kind of thick MDF with black wood grain finish that is very similar to the Energy RC series, close enough match that someone might think it was intentional. The posts are heavy duty metal chrome (very solid), and the end caps you see in the 2nd picture on top are a plastic chrome screw on type (wish those were metal) that attach to the metal posts. The caps are also on the bottom, locking the posts firmly in place.
Before putting the TV on top of the stand, I removed the plastic swivel platform from the bottom to increase stability. The top of the swivel platform pops off and then just a few screws to remove it the rest of the way. I then put thick stick 'em furniture pads on the bottom; this step is necessary because of the plastic corner caps on the bottom.
Anyway, hope this helps someone else. I think it looks a lot better and reduces risk of scratching the center with the TV stand. Because it also allows me to shift the center farther forward, and because the center is up off the main entertainment console center an inch more, I'm hoping this helps improve dispersion.
Be nice to do the dedicated HT room setup with the big center. I've seen yours before
I could have put the center in the console underneath. But in a crowded home living room, it really seems better to have it up in the air more. And I've seen other pictures where people have the same issue where their console is already full anyway and no room for the center. At $34 and $1 worth of those furniture leg stick 'ems, works pretty well even for those with small budgets.
Thanks for that link. I had considered those legs awhile ago and never pulled the trigger. After putting my tv on my Rolykit behind my Pioneer center, I later found a $4 wire shelf from Goodwill that puts the tv over the center. Kind of ghetto/trailer park, but it's working for me at the moment.
