Flat Component Media Systems To Match Flat TV’s
Who doesn’t love flat screens? They have a gorgeous picture and they are just an amazing piece of tech packed in a very slim eye-pleasing package. This saves a great deal of space compared to older CRT or rear-screen projected television sets. Unfortunately stereos and media players haven’t followed suit. In an ideal world, all component systems and DVD/Blu-Ray players would be slim as well, offering a vertical setup comparable to a game system like the PS3 Slim. If this happened, your entire media shelving unit would only be as deep as DVD cases. Much space would be reclaimed.
If there are existing stereo units like these please let me know! Otherwise, I hope electronics manufacturers take note.
The one drawback is the shelving would need to be able to stay upright safely, as it doesn’t evenly distribute weight. You might have to tie it down with a harness, similar to what most people do for bookshelves.
