Too much equipment!!

OK,I've got an HQ100 which hasn't exactly got the most space under it thanks to a fancy design. I've got an AV amp(15cm) a DVD-R(7cm),a freeview box(5cm),a VCR(9cm),a DVD player(5cm). what do people do when it all won't fit?? There's no room for a seperate rack,i can ditch the VCR but i still can't get anywhere near the space required. Could the amp and DVD player go on top of the TV?? (Looks pants but what can i do??!!) Whatever combination i come up with doesn't look great,when i get it looking good the leads don't fit!!!

Didn't you see the stand before you bought the TV? I'd go fo a seperate rack. You don't spend that much on a TV and then risk :censored: something else up by stacking on top. It just isn't designed to do that. :eek:

That wasn't the situation,all was fine until Sony offered some equipment to combat lip sync!! Only other way is to mod the stand,loose the VCR(never used it anyway-waste of £££!!!) then it will all just fit,means reducing the height of the glass shelf by 2mm...........

Personally I would suggest ditching the free TV stand and buy a new AV rack - ideally the AV Amp should not have anything on top of it as it will obscure the ventilation grills and mean that it will be prone to over heating. Fortuantly you have a small centre speaker so it really shouldnt be a problem - with full sized centres even some AV racks can run short of room!
