    I had a thought today...am I committing a serious no-no by placing the majority of my components on top of my RPTV? I have a Toshiba 56H80 which seems like it has a quite sturdy cabinet, but could this be harmful? I do, at least, have the weight fairly evenly distributed across the top.

    I have had components on top of my 56x81 for over a year and half now and no problems at all..I just dont have the room for a component rack because my set sits kitty corner in the corner of the room due to a fireplace....

    Hi Jason,
    The bulk of the weight of the 56/65 tosh sets is due to the cabinet. The cabinet is solid and rigid. No need to worry about putting a few components on top.
    I wouldn't do this on its sister 40 tosh though as it is the not constructed the same.
    I would highly recommend a separate cabinet though for your components rather than putting them on top of the set. Ideally, you'd want to only put your center speaker on top.
    Thanks,
    Errol

    Thanks for the help, guys!
    Yes, I would very much like to put a cabinet or a rack next to the TV for my components, but I do not have the room at the moment (in an apartment). This is definately something I will do in the near future. Thanks again!
