    6-7 feet would be ok for me. I have the Pioneer speaker SCR 50. It was easy to get up the stairs as its so light!! Just have to be careful of the screen. Let us know how you get on.

    cheers,

    It's a Toshiba 40WH08B. I've got it sitting on it's stand (although I know some people don't like the stand as it lifts the height of the TV) and my centre speaker (Yamaha) sits perfectly in the stand.
