    I have a toshiba 50H81 and its currently sitting on top of an entertainment center (its not really too high off the ground). i would prefer to have it on ground level and move the entertainment center to another room. I have a question though. I have a yamaha reciever (R-V905). Is that too much weight to put on top of the tv? It SEEMS sturdy enough, but i am fairly new to the projection field, so i need some advice. Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    A couple of years ago I had an older 50" Mitsubishi and I kept 2 receivers, a DVD player, the center channel speaker, and 2 VCRs on top with no problems. I have a newer model now, and the only thing on top of it is the center channel speaker and some miscellaneous anime related knick-knacks. The older TV was built like a house though - I bet it could have supported me!

    Andrew,
    I have that set, and I've got my JBL N-Center and an amplified antenna sitting on top. My wife decided she'd "decorate" [​IMG] and add a couple of framed photos. That's all and it holds everything well.

    I put a 26lbs center speaker on top of my flimsy TW40X81 without an problems (except for the fact it doesn't fit and is actually balanced on -- though it's heaviness actually helps out here.)

    I won't put a receiver there. RPTV top part is just an empty plastic box.

    I have a Toshiba 65HDX82 and I believe it states in the manual (now I will have to go home and check it) not to put anything that gets hot on top of the set. I don't think I would take the chance with anything too heavy either. I wouldn't put an A/V Receiver up there as they tend to be heavy and give off a fair amount of heat. I have my Onkyo Center Channel Speaker on top of mine and that's it.
    I think you might be better off if you were to put your A/V equipment in an A/V rack and stand it next to the set.
    Just my opinion...

    My center channel speaker weighs a ton, so I had to resort to using a black wire rack to hold up the center speaker to relieve any undue stress on the RPTV.
