All right, so I just got on the good deal for a Panasonic TCP65GT30 and I am now trying to figure out a stand...
So, here is the criteria.
1. Inexpensive. We will be moving in 7 months and the future house might not have the same area as this one so we could go to a wall mount or something else.
2. Not Wall Mount. We can't with the current HT set-up.
3. Relatively stable. 2+ year-old. Enough Said.
4. Center Channel Mount/shelf. The Center channel is currently on top of the Sony TV the new TV will replace. Obviously this won't work on the Plasma.
I think that is about all.
Initially I thought about getting a wall mount and then making a support system to hook it to a bottom cabinet (very simple) that I can build. I think this is the cheapest and allows me to possibly use the wall mount in the future, but I wonder about #3, it's stability.
Because of that I am leaning towards buying this and making a cabinet to attach it to. The cabinet would be VERY simple and the goal would be that the Center sits right under the TV slightly angled up and a few components could go underneath on a single shelf. I think I could build something like that very inexpensively (Under $100 plus the TV Mount)
Has anyone on here already done something like this? Any premade stuff I should look at instead?
