Finally. If you remember the wife said I could get the plasma but nothing could show in her living room! Here comes the KE 42XS910 from the Hooker Furniture cabinet

Here is the TV with the component stack:

That's me in the reflection.  Here is the component stack closer:

and the Sunfire True Sub Jr, the most visible piece:

I tried to keep the wiring clean:

Thanks for letting me share this with you.

TonyTiger- What a nice setup, cool equiptment. Real neat job on the wiring, looks nice. And it's really cool the way you were able to hide everything. I don't see the surrounds though, if possible could you add a picture of those too?

Cool, now that how to get high WAF   Are those custom made cables or were you just lucky having them all perfect length?  I really like the AV enclosure, did you have to insert the mesh or was it supplied like that?

Thanks for the kind comments. I did get lucky on some 1 meter cables. The rest are custom cut. My friend Rich is an automotive security system installer and a TV installer so he brought the blue spool with him. We needed it for all of the longer runs.... to the sub and to the rears. The rears are just BOSE cubes but they hid nicely mounted to the window's lower corner. The cable comes up from below next to a handy heat duct they follows runs under the baseboard to come up at the correct spot.

and the right:

I think I took this picture before securing the speaker bracket :<[
I used a Radio Shack Sound Level Meter and balanced the six speakers (5.1) using the Marantz's tone generation.  It sounds great.   I might look into upgrading the BOSE's eventually now that some other small cubes have appeared.

The WAF is very high. Now I'm teaching her how to use the Marantz RC1400 remote. I macroed a PlayDVD and a WatchTV for her. It's really cool to see the TV raise up from the cabinet. I have to get that working from the remote. The cabinet used RF and the remote sends IR. Any ideas??

Duncan-
I'm very happy with the Hooker Furniture cabinet,
http://www.hookerfurniture.com/index.cfm?inc=cats&level=3&topCatID=9&parentID=260&gParentID=9&item=109-55-020

It took months to come and since the back is exposed we had to build a stand off hardwood panel to attach to each unit.
This Plasma furniture comes with three choices for the upper panel. Wood, speaker mesh on a thick frame or glass(not supplied). The smaller right cabinet also has a glass panel included for the large lower panel. We wired a Niles IR repeater to the ADS center speaker. That routes down through the cabinet out the back and into the small cabinet. The IR blaster then fit under the Marantz. In the component picture you can just see it in the middle under the amp. It blasts enough signal up the front to reach all of the other components. You can see it in the 4th picture. In the 6th picture you can see the IR receiver box mounted on the inside wall next to the Motorola HD box. It has the capacity to have other blasters come out to go to another cabinet or shoot up from another shelf.

I was waiting to see this pics and TonyTiger you don't disappoint.  I love that plasma display.  I'm sure the pq is just as sharp as the way you have it displayed.  I think our wives need to meet so yours can talk mine into allowing one of these to be delivered to my home.   Really great setup. 

I'm adding a link for you from smarthome.com, it is equipment to change your Ir to Rf.  I haven't personally tried it but it might help.

TonyTiger,

You have a beautiful home and a beautiful setup. All your careful planning and hours of installation is quite apparent. You have a right to be proud of the end result. Thanks for the "look in". Love that pop up screen.

Thanks! I'm blushing
and very happy. Thanks to ALL. Steal what ideas you can, I sure did.

Thanks Maxxwire, great to get kudos from an 'old hand'. Did I mention it took one night (6 hours) and another day (6-8 hours) to get the whole thing set up? Two hours to mount the plasma in the Hooker Cabinet. We had to adjust all of the brackets on the universal mount.
