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.
With flat electronics that have the same orientation as your TV, the entire entertainment unit would only be about 6 – 7″ deep, which is a lot of space savings in your living room..
The one drawback is making sure that everything stays upright in a secure fashion. Right now large 40″-80″ flatscreen TV’s can sit on a shelf just fine, thanks to their weight. But for Stereos and Blu-Ray players they would need to be secured in place to prevent tipping over.
