If you go with a table top placement, go with a glass top/ metal frame. I have found the wooden cabinets always bow in the middle, which looks like crap. I bought mine from BB when it was on a good sale.
I would say find the model you want and then shop for prices. Make sure it has the shelf/ ventilation clearance for your other gear. I have a very tall center channel speaker and it took me a while to find the unit I wanted/required. I also wanted my TV screen height to be as close to my eye height when sitting down.
really try to think about everything you need. Forgetting one thing can really suck!
