Smallest reciver available?

Alright guys,

I'm Adding a cinema to my basement and require the smallest Av system i can get my hands on.
System so far is as follows

Benq w2700
2 x Monitor audio Wss430
1 x W10 Subwoofer.

Ill be running a 2.1 configuration with 2 main sources, My issue is the unit i wish to house the system is only 26 cm (260mm) Deep

So far I'm Stumped, short of putting a slim line Av system on its side which is hardly ideal im out of ideas?
Can any one help

Cheers
Dave.

I run my Denon 4400 on it's side for now. I am using it in my living room and my cabinet is not deep enough for it.

PS..

You might have better luck posting in the Audio/Receivers section not the dedicated home theater one..

Cut the back out. This is how I got my days Onkyo to fit. Helps keep it cool also. It was tough (mentally) to take a skill saw to a brand new piece of furniture but the wife is happy as can be.

I doubt you will find something that shallow. Most everything I see is at least 12.5" deep and then you still need some room behind for cables, etc.

7.1.4 Theater Room (In Progress): JVC-RS46U, Silver Ticket AT 2.35:1 142”, Onkyo RZ830, Anthem PVA-7, Panasonic DBT-110, JBL Studio 270’s, 4 - 15" DIY Sealed Subs

3.1 Living Room: Samsung 64” F8500 Plasma, Anthem MRX 300, Dynaudio Audience 52’s, Dynaudio Audience 122C, NHT SubOne

Trying to think outside the box... what about something like these as a combo? Then they fit easily. The only issue is no dedicated sub output and would require the sub to have the crossover.

use a headphone to rca cable out of the side, done.

EDIT: Eh, no easy volume control with that setup. Guess I should keep digging.

Funny, I'm in the process of doing the same thing to my stand to make my giant old faithful Onkyo fit after installing banana plugs and have the same furniture sliders under the feet. I'm leaving them there since it makes it so much easier to move and get to everything.

Sorry not to add more to the discussion but I feel like it's a good idea now.
