You all have such beautiful, clean setups. I can’t show mine well in photographs for several reasons. Some 20 years ago, I was looking for a spot to install most of my equipment. I’d been thinking about converting a small closet, but our 1940’s era home is short on closet space. A local stereo store was having a sale, and I got their floor model TV/stereo cabinet. It’s about 6.5 feet (2M) tall, and wide enough for a 42 inch TV. It closes up, so you don’t see the TV all the time. It’s in a living room corner - the piano is in the other corner.
This cabinet houses not only the TV, but cable box, Blu-Ray player, Rotel CD player, the VPI turntable, some CDs and vinyl, the Wired 4 Sound STI 1000 integrated amp, Musical Fidelity phono preamp, Teac DAC, Monster Sound power conditioner/surge protector, and Sonos Port. On top is a soundbar for the TV. A Bluetooth sub that goes with the TV is nearby.
Snaking around the corner coming out of the cabinet are some Cardas Litz cables to my Rectilinear 3 Highboy speakers on either side of the fireplace, which is on the long side of the rectangular 13 x 25 foot room. The Highboys lack the proper grilles, so I made some from black grille metal, had them flanged properly, so they fit correctly. So the speakers are a nice walnut veneer with black fronts.
