My HLN5065W will (hopefully) be arriving in a few weeks and I need a good stand for it. Unfortunately, the matching Samsung stand doesn't have a lot of space for my audio components. Anyone have suggestions?

I have the same set and got a simple stand from Target. 2 sides for components with adjustable shelves provides more space for components than the samsung stand. The sides of the Sammy extend just beyond the edges of the stand (1/2 inch on each sides)

Search this thread further...I know that there are more extensive discussions of stands for DLP and there are nicer options out there. I went the cheap route.

Welcome to AVS Forum!


Clumeng's suggestion is a good one. IKEA also has a nice "TV bench." I needed one for my 50" DLP that had wheels on it so I could get to the back of the TV and components. WoodTech had a nice one out of hardwood with six casters on the bottom. It is not perfect but it does make it easier...


Good luck.

Any one have the combination of the Sammy 61" DLP and running the big foot Rocket center channel ? I am having a heck of a time finding something with a 12" shelf height. The wife is insisting that it does not go on a stand in front ?

I ran into the same problem with my Hitachi's stand (60v500, I am STILL waiting on my hln617w), the Hitachi stand wasn't deep enough, or had enough vertical clearance to allow cooling/ventillation.


I built an a/v shelf above my TV since I had no room on the left and right sides of where my TV is. I am no master carpenter, but the shelf is great and has plenty of room for everything.

nice job! i think your carpentry skills are much better then you let on, well i hope they are since you put all those components above your $5000 tv!


that was my biggest fear about putting stuff above the tv, i'm pretty confident, but still there's always some doubt...


as far as stands for the samsung. it's a (relatively) shallow tv, so you have a lot of choices that will work, just find one that meets your aesthic requirements.

I'm glad to hear you get your Tv in 2-3 weeks. When did you order it? Its seems most stores are quoting 6-8 weeks.

The best way to go with a stand is to make one on your own. You should probably go through the pictures people have posted for some ideas. Are you handy with power tools?


I hope this helps.

Some of the Bush stands (available at Best Buy among other places) fit nicely with the Samsung DLP sets and others of a similar size. A couple have a silver and graphite finish that blends nicely aesthetically too. Usually about $200.
