No pictures as of now, but I prefer on a wall for sure. Opens up space on the stand for all the audio related gear especially since it is a combined HT/ 2 channel system.

Mine, wall mounted and extended to about 1" from the back of the speakers, which are 17.5" from the wall.

The speakers only intrude upon the screen view from more than 45º off-axis, by which point the speaker also don't sound nearly as good. There are actually no comfortable seats that far off-axis anyhow.

debating on wall mounting our 65" oled, issue is it would be above a fireplace. So would have to buy that monoprice drop down mount.

Counter-sunk into stone wall. Fireplace and mantle on one side, TV on the other. Wall is about 15 feet wide. Only way to get the TV low enough to have a comfortable experience.

I have mine wall mounted but's it hard to hide the cables as it has a concrete wall and cutting channels into now would too much pain

It can be a problem, but not all wall-mounted TV's are high. When they are, you can be craning your neck to look up all the time and get cramps.

Mine isn't, see the photo just a few posts back.

She didn't rule it out. It was my decision because the ceiling was brand new, she doesn't like surround sound (especially subs), and I'm only using it for concert DVD's and the like.

Funny thing is, she watches movies almost every day but simply will not use my KEF R series surround system!

I've had my 70" mounted above the fireplace for several years as that's where it fit best. I ran wires and power through the wall so the install is super clean. Seating is about 15' away.


I'd read of all of the issues/concerns but have had absolutely none and LOVE the location. It's above any kids/dogs running around so, there's no way it's going to get knocked over or damaged. I can't imagine having a TV on a stand being safe with kids around.

My wife wanted the "big speakers" gone during our recent remodel so was very OK with ceiling speakers and a Subwoofer.



Cost no object I'd have gone with the in-wall speakers (completely hidden/dry walled over) that I'd read about. That's some cool tech.
