Make sure the center post is not a structural support for the stand above it. Otherwise, cutting the post might make the stand sag under the load of the TV.

Thanks for your info.

This stand is pretty solid. i bet i can stand on it with the 100lb tv..i go 230lb.
If i cut the middle piece, it will be just to fit the speaker to fit flush with the front of stand. pending my speakerr choice will be from 5in deep to 9in. it is 18in deep center post.

What cables should i run for the speakers?

Having a Ps3 & getting denon 1713. How many HDMI cables do i need?

I guess run ps3 to denon, denon to tv?

Will the wii with that hdmi out adaptor work with this denon?

Any other items you think i may need? Not a new HT console, lol (i wish)

Thanks all for your help

Marty

I would get all cables at monoprice. Cheap, fast shipping, good quality. And yes, the "wii to HDMI" adapter works fine. Although its not necessary if you don't mind running an extra video cable to your display.

You will need:

- one HDMI cable for connection from receiver to TV.
- one HDMI cable for each component you with to connect to the receiver
- since HDMI cables are only a few bucks each, and you are already paying for shipping, I would order a couple of extras
- you will need speaker wire to connect the speakers. Since you are only running 3.1, you don't have long runs to the surrounds so a 50' roll of basic 16 gauge will be fine.
- it's probably worth picking up a few banana plugs for at least the back side of the receiver (much easier to connect than bare wire)
- you will need a hefty RCA "digital coax" cable to connect to the subwoofer

That's pretty much it.

I'll also mention, since I don't know what random cables you already have lying around, but I would recommend getting a few spares of other stuff (e.g. optical cables, an extra subwoofer / digital coax cable, etc). Like I said, once you are already paying for shipping costs, an extra cable is only a couple of bucks. So might as well drop 10-15 bucks on a few spares... you never know when you will randomly need an optical cable or something.
