I did not know where to ask this question so I will try here.
I have convinced my wife that the huge entertainment center we have has to go. Currently the TV is sitting on a shelf that is 20 1/2" off the floor which I think is to low. The top of the TV is at 49 1/2" inches. I bought a wall mount but I am not sure what height to mount the TV. We sit @ 8'-0" from the tv on a sofa. My TV is currently a 40" LCD. My next challenge is to find a rack that will hold my 7 components and a CSi5. I have been looking at the VTI BL 503 with the addition of a 7" add on shelf to hold the CSi5 and whatever else on either side of the CSi5. The height of these racks together are @ 33" and the CSi5 is 8" tall. I do not want to mount the CSi5 above the TV on a shelf because it will stick out like a sour thumb. Does that push the TV to high? My set up is a compromise between a HT and a 2 channel with out the room to separate. Any suggestions for the TV height and ideas are welcome.
PS. Shop vac is for RCM and the black box all the way on the bottom is a 5 channel amp inside the glass.
