Here's the current system. That's our normal coffee table (which we want back, as we're using the old TV stand, which is too high).
This is the old TV stand (Ikea), which is great, but note the lack of space to put the massive HT3 center channel:
The problem is that this is in a corner with no way to really put the TV on the wall. Also, the equipment is over to the "right" from the speakers. The speaker wires and HDMI run through the wall, into and across the basement, and to boxes behind the TV. I used super-fancy HDMI cable (Bluejeans? Or fancier?) to run that distance. Still supports 4k though, or at least our Fire TV box says it does and it looks as if it does. Without routing longer wire, I can't really move the TV
I've found a source for high-end, custom TV stands, but I was hoping for something cheaper. The only thing I think will work is a coffee table similar to what we have. The problem is that I have the center speaker on a cushion that's pointed upward. I'd like to point it upward even more, but coffee tables really aren't made for this purpose, and the speaker is so big it's currently about 12 inches high with the pad. I'm finding it difficult to find coffee tables that fit that, let alone another inch or so.
And it would be nice to store some stuff, but a coffee table isn't meant for that. I also wouldn't mind "hiding" the center channel, but again coffee tables aren't meant for that.
