    I searched the gallery for hours and PMed so many people asking questions before putting together this system.

    The mounting and cables all came from monoprice. The majority of the cables are going to a room in the back where I have an HTPC (home theater personal computer) running mythtv as well as my surge protector and many other cables that I wanted to hide in another room.

    The TV stand is actually an Ikea bookcase, which made it elevate and put wheels on it. can't see and book a black to it and raised it so it would hide the white wall plates.

    It actually looks a million times better than these pictures I took. I used a semigloss black, which the few people who have seen the stand thinks that it's the exact same color when they are sitting on the couch.

    I'm going to probably get a glass cut to put on top of it as well as I've seen others do something similar.

    All the cables I bought from monoprice and mounting equipment from monoprice. The bookcase cost about 80 dollars and I spent about 30 more dollars on the back plate, painting, and frame and picked everything up from the local hardware store.

    Nice job, good work. Looks very clean.
    I had mine on the wall but because of the insulation I couldnt bury the cables in the wall but I found a very nice stand so Im happy.

    I am in America

    I kept going back and forth about buying a surround sound system and the more I read about surround sound it seems that it's not really designed for rooms that you have the couch against the wall. So since I have the couch against the wall I keep second thinking about the speaker setup.
    I have a friend who has a couch against the wall and their speakers are above his head, which I think it sounds horrible. I think it sounds worse than before......
    I'm pushing virtual surround with the samsung option, which I'm impressed with and was thinking about getting a 2.1, because of my couch setup I'm starting to think that would produce the best audio.
