Flat Component Media Systems To Match Flat TV’s

Flatscreen TV Flat Component Electronics

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.

  1. Well, you can get quite high end hifi mini systems that can be used to plug DVD sources into, etc… some even feature(d) DVD playback. I daresay some have been made that have Blu-ray functionality.

    Only a little bit slimmer than a typical modern video player or separate amp, granted, but it’s still something. They’re often not much deeper than a DVD case, certainly. And some lower end stereos exist that are of this kind of design (e.g. discs go in vertically). It’d be worth a look to find out…

    If you can get it all slim enough, and have it so e.g. the cables attach to sockets that point straight down rather than out (or you get cables with right-angle plugs), you may even want to consider having the DVDs racked diagonally (turned 45 degrees or more from the perspective of looking straight down at the top of the box) on the shelf, the way some parking lots and hire store shelves are arranged.
