Last weekend, Mrs T. and I decided we wanted to get rid of my stereo with it’s big speakers. We also decided to purchase a new TV cabinet/stand. So we ventured out to look into various options. We ended up finding a new stand and purchasing a full surround sound system. After we got it all home and unpacked, that’s when the trouble started.
We actually bought the wrong surround sound system. I had intended to buy the version with wireless rear speakers but we bought the one with wired. So after packing everything back into the box, I ran out and got the right one. I have to say it is awesome to have surround sound now! The system also allows independent speakers throughout the house that can control devices like my ipod from the stereo without interrupting the front room. It’s very cool!
The other issue was the stand supports only 95 pounds. Well the TV weighs 145 pounds. It’s holding for now… I’m now working on convincing Mrs T. we need a lighter flat screen TV. :)
