I asked a few days ago on nice AV consoles, and sure enough, you post that beautiful piece of furniture. That's exactly what I'm looking for, at about 4 times the cost! Isn't that always the way? I probably shouldn't save for that console just due to having an 8 month old around. Soon enough he'll be walking and playing with his toys on everything. Wouldn't want to scratch the console.
Totally LOVE the setup. I started with two S3000i, then 3 MT-110's, then the MT-110SR's. Then the MTM-210c, next the S3600i, and finally the MTM-210T. And finally the Standout Designs Console! It took me a couple years to be able to fork out the johnny on the console, but I tell you these things are designed and built so well, and Alan at Standout help me get it customized for the quite large 210c. Certainly not cheap but definitely worth the cost, I wish I didn't have to wait so long, priorities however were my PSA speakers/subs!
The console loaded with all the components, the 210c, and the TV, can all still be pretty easily be moved with the hidden wheels. Need to change wiring, put in a new Oppo UDP-203? Wheel the console away from the wall, take off the back panels, and you have easy access to everything. There are ports between each vertical section in the console to run wires. The only wires/cables coming out of the rear of the console are for power and speakers. It's so clean, it's not only a thing of beauty to look at, but also build and functionally wise. The doors and the drawer all fit and function flawlessly.
I went a few years with my old console during my PSA build-out. I at first had my 110c, then 210c, on a shelf I made above the TV. Not optimal and it had to be quite burly to support the 210c, not to mention a little hazardous above an expensive TV! Then the Sony 72" panel fried and went to a 65" LG OLED. My shelf was then too high above the TV. Took shelf down and simply stacked the TV on top of the 210c (which I couldn't do before with the 110c). That certainly worked but at that point the TV and the viewing angle was pretty high. Finally, with a sale at Standout Designs, I went for the console I had been wanting for years. Took about 30 days for the custom build, Alan at Standout didn't even bill me until the console was on the shipping dock. And Standout is similar to Power Sound Audio in that it's another high quality Made in USA company. Both make amazing products, and despite not being inexpensive, they both provide awesome value for your dollar.
My suggestion would be to get by with what you have for now, give the kid a year or so too
, and save your pennies for a Standout Design or something similar (which I never found).
