    Hi - I want to buy a good tv stand which can hold the following things:

    TV (92kg Loewe - ouch!)
    DVD player
    VCR
    A/V Receiver
    Centre speaker(or should this go on the tele?)

    i.e a stand which can hold a heavy tv and about 4 boxes(may get digibox).

    I think a glass stand would be nice - no wood please

    Price range is up to about £450ish, but it depends on how good the stand is.

    Thanks a lot for any help guys

    glass to hold 92kgs will be expensive

    I have a stand from Optimum2000.

    Its lovely... I have a 95kg Sony 36" on top and there is no centre support.. Its a 1m wide sheet of glass, suspended at the edges.. And it does bend.

    There isn't a day which goes by that I don't think that it might break, but its been ok for almost 2 years.

    They now do a version which is deeper and has a support at the back... But thats more expensive...

    Their website is something like 'www.optimum2000.co.uk'..

    Wow!!! I can't believe the prices for that furniture. £260 just to stack your CD's on.

    You can buy some great looking furniture for that sort of money, not just 4 legs and a few glass shelves.

    Surely you could make your own furniture that looks the same and for a lot less money.

    Hi - I checked out the soundstyle ones from hifiblitz - the biggest one is wide enough and strong enough to hold the tv, but do u think a 48cm deep stand will hold a 70cm deep tv?? Good price at £289.

    The best stand i have found so far is the AV3000 from optimum 2000 - but that is £600!!!

    Any other suggestions would be great

    Hi

    You can try www.quadraspire.com. They do a large AV stand for bigger TVs. But I'm sure how strong they are or the cost.

    Go with the Optimum stands, I have the Av400 and it's an absolutely cracking bit of kit, even the wife likes it !!

    Getting my Sony 36" on Friday so glad to know that it takes the weight :)

    I have a Sony KV36FS70 stand which is absolutely stunning. I am sure it can be used for other makes of TV. It has two shelves and will not accomodate everything you quote, but it will take a DVD and video player and perhaps a centre speaker.

    See my ad in the ads section on this website.

    I am also looking for a suitable TV stand for my Sony 32". The depth is around 600mm and there isn't a lot of stands out there that are this deep. I was wondering if people are using smaller stands and let the back of the TV hang off?

    Cheers.

    Your TV will not hang off the back, my stand is deep enough. Drop me an e-mail on geoantoniou@aol.com if interested.

    Jim,

    I have the AV400 and an FS70 and it does indeed take the weight and has done for over a year..

    But.. Whether I trust it is a different question.

    Do yourself a favour.. Find some rubber sheet (i.e something like Mouse mats)

    I put my FS70 on the stand at first and you could slid it around like it was weightless.. A simple knock could easily have slid it on the floor.

    I put 3 mouse mats underneath (1 either side and one at the back) and that holds it nicely in place.. Depending on the type of 'mat' you will have you will have to peal off the side designed to run your mouse on, otherwise it will defeat the object.

    Also, make sure that you never scratch the glass.. if you do, it will have a weak spot and I expect it to fail (in a dramatic fashion).

    Other than that, the AV400 is a lovely standy.. I just wish that it would have some kind of centre support!

    Good luck
