I plan to build an entertainment center for my apartment that will house my television, cassette deck, turntable, XBOX (which is my media center), the playstation 2, and have shelving for my records, DVDs (not many) and my current sound system's control pod, later being an actual A/V receiver. Hopefully the building materials will not sky rocket, but I plan to build the majority of it with laminate board, and use pine for the drawer faces and shelves, all coated with a medium cherry stain and brushed stainless drawer handles. If possible, I may install glass or lexan doors for the shelving, which will be recessed. Here is the quick mock up I did in Microsoft Paint: Grey items are Sound System components Red is the digital picture frame (powered off by remote control) Yellow is where light would be emitted from using recessed light fixtures mounted upside down. I plan to use a remote controlled power outlet and program my Icon Remote to power the lighting on or off if possible. On the side view, the grey strip along the back is where I would have surge protector power strips mounted. I use two strips but only one outlet on the second power strip. For the headphone amp and switch box, I plan for that to be an entire component of it's own. I have a headphone amp that I built that can be adapted to a different cabinet. It's a simple amp, run off two 9V batteries. It has three connections on the back, all 1/8" stereo connections (it was originally built for an MP3 player or for the computer). On the front, it has a power indicator LED, a volume knob, and a 1/4" stereo connection for the headphones. If I can find a decent AV switch box, I will build a presentable wood cabinet and move the AV switch box components into it, and combine the headphone amp controls into that as well. This would not be permanent though, as I plan to get an actual AV receiver later on that will control all of this for me. The 8-Track receiver is actually a vintage Lloyds 8-Track AM/FM receiver which I plan to keep as part of the entertainment center setup permanently. It gives it some class and character! In time, when a sufficient AV receiver is found and purchased, both will still be on the entertainment center together, but the AV receiver will only be used as a switch box/amp and not a tuner.
