I just wish the Horizon wasn't so dang tall. I have about 10" of clearance between the TV and top shelf of my stand. That means the Horizon will block about an inch of the bezel. Luckily, that doesn't quite cut into the screen, but will probably look weird.
Here's a post on some custom "low-profile" horizons Ascend made:

Sorry just noticed that the center is still 11" tall so it must just be the vertically oriented versions that are narrower at 8.5"

Yeah, I'm not a member of the forum (I should probably register) so I can't see the pics, but it sounds like a Horizon tipped upright, probably as a replacement for the bookshelves.

I think when it comes down to it, I'm going to prioritize speakers, and adjust the environment to work with them, which with these means I'll probably sell the stand, get an A/V cabinet, and mount the TV to the wall.

I would call Dina...I ran into same problem and ended up lowering shelf that it sits on down an inch... But I think while I was researching problem that Dave can make one a little shorter... Call, It will be worth the time . I love this system ( and that is NOT where the subs ended up being . It was for pictures only...)
