My parents new tv and avr.

Just helped my parents pick out a new 4ktv and avr. As theyre old pioneer died a 2nd time, and theyre 65 mittsubishi projection 1080p tv is long in the tooth.

Went with a LG 55" C8 tv, and a Denon 740 avr., a monoprice articulating wall mount for the C8. Theyre family room where the tv resides will be newly wall mounted by myself. Ill utilize theyre current 5.1 setup, and they have outdoor stereo speaker by theyre inground pool to listen to the Cardinals games or stream Pandora.

Went with the Denon 740 due to getting it new at a low price of 399.99 on sale and its capability to do 5.1 and send 2.0 to zone 2. As well as controll zone 2 via the denon app on a smartphone. They have polk LR towers and CC, theyre side surrounds are in wall sonace, with 10" def tech sub(forget what model?) They dont crank the volume, so...

My parents watch tv via charter spectrum, as well as blurays via theyre current panasonic bluray player. Neither cared for a 4k bluray player. Also they already have a logitech 700 harmony to controll everything.

Any and little tv streaming will be done via smart app built into the C8 via ethernet connection. As I installed a wired AP near the family room tv stand in theyre home. I dont know that theyll even know how to stream on theyre new tv, as both are 70. Lol

(R&L: Infinity Beta 50) (Center: Infinity Beta C360) (Surround Side & Back: Infinity IW ERS 210 x 4) (TM: Infinity IC ERS 110 x 2) (Sub: Def Tech SC1)
(7.2.2 Config.) (AVR: Denon-4500) (Audiosource Amp 110 for TM's) (BRP: Pioneer 80FD) (Nvidia Shield TV) (Display: LG-65C9)

You may be surprised. Good job with helping them.

Having trouble finding a new tv stand to hold theyre Avr, bluray player, cable box, surge protector, and maybe some storage drawers for blurays.

My mom looked at Diamond Case online, the one she had liked wasnt in stock measured 74 long x 34 high( I included pics of that model). She also had no luck at the local furniture stores. Any suggestions for tv stands/audio cabinet shops?

Shes hoping to have one by this coming weekend, as the new tv and avr is being delivered tommorrow.
