A fellow North (central) Texan! Fort Worth, here. Do you have an Xbox 360, by chance?


Those are some big speakers! Have you thought about mounting the TV on that wall? That would look pretty sweet.


Enjoy!

Very nice set up. How does the TX SR606 work out? I just picked up the 607 and like it very much. Onkyo just announced the TX-SR608 yesterday.

DO NOT mount that display on the wall. It might look "pretty sweet" in magazines, but your viewing angle will be compromised.

If it were me, the viewing angle compromise would be WELL worth the increased performance from the center channel no longer being behind the tv.

There's other options to correct that.

My guess is the center is behind the TV when he isn't watching movies, and he brings it out when he does watch movies. Probably blocks the remote from working, I had to do the same thing with my old setup.

agreed, if the stand is the studiotech ultra u-22D as I think it is, you have the optioin to buy the U-PMP risers and mount your tv just high enough to clear the center. It wouldn't be that much higher as you would be removing the tv's pedistal. Additionally you could remove the feet which would lover the stand for either wall mount or riser mount.




The dp-pmp worked great for my studiotech dp-2:

You could also place the TV on a block to raise it high enouigh that the centre would not block the bottom of the TV. I had a block made with a channel underneath for the speaker cable. See attached pic.
