I finally took a picture of my living room setup.



The front speakers are Klipsch RF-82, center Klipsch RC-62, subwoofer Klipsch RW-10d.  A DVP-NS999ES is on the middle shelf.  Bottom shelf left to right are:  TA-F555ES, STR-DA3100ES, CDP-CX88ES.  The TV will be replaced in the future with a unit mounted on the wall above the center speaker.  I might wait until the 3D units come out before doing this.  The 4 surround and surround back speakers (not pictured) are Klipsch RF-52.

Immediately right of the DVP-NS999ES is a speaker switch that I made.  It switches the front speakers between the TA-F555ES and the STR-DA3100ES.  The switch is rated 26 amps at 125 volts.  All wires inside the switch box are 12 gauge, my speaker wires are also all 12 gauge.

The stand is an Init C1201 from Best Buy.  I bought this model because I could mount castors under the stand and have the castors hidden from view.  The castors let me easily move the unit away from the wall whenever I make changes to the entertainment system.

The top view of the stand (without the shelves) shows the lighter colored pieces that I added for mounting castors.


I bought the metal from a local company that would cut the pieces to my exact measurements.  I filed the rough and sharp edges and drilled all the holes.

Bottom view.


The bottom view shows the 5 mounted castors and shows inside corner braces that I added for extra rigidity.  Each castor has a load rating of 150 pounds.

Back view.


This shows 1 of the reinforcing plates that I added to the back of the rear shelf supports.  Painted a matching black & attached with 8 machine screws.  This view also shows part of the 3/32” by 3” strip of stainless steel I attached to the front of the front bottom shelf support.  This strip conceals the castors from the front view & greatly increases the load capacity of the bottom shelf.  I painted the front of this strip a matching black.

Back view, showing the center castor attached to the back frame.


The castors are mounted onto 1/4” thick 3” by 4” angle iron.  The angle iron is bolted to the hollow rectangular framework of the stand.  I inserted spacers inside the frame so I could tighten the bolts without compressing the hollow frame of the stand.

Hello David,

Really a great looking system with very clever ideas using the speaker switch and the "roll out" stand to access back panels. Excellent components and speakers. I'll bet it sounds wonderful. Nice detailed pics of your stand dolly. looks like you could move a tank on it. Nice work, I love the way in is concealed from the front view.

Thanks for taking the time to take and share the pictures of your Home Theater with us, it is appreciated.

Joe

My living room setup is taking a step towards modernization.



A STR-DA5700ES is being added to the system.












I am in the process of repainting the living room.  The receiver will be put into the AV stand after the wall behind the stand is repainted.  A panel TV will be mounted on the wall after the wall is painted.  I plan to have at least 1 month for the paint on the wall to cure before purchasing & mounting the panel TV.

Very nice setup, David. I am in the process of finishing up a 16 X 24  room addition and my setup will be very similar to yours.
