After a bunch of ideas on floating shelves etc. – I finally landed in this. It is installed directly into the wall and has complete open access to back side on the unfinished side of the basement. Made A/V install a breeze, everything is at eye height and no need to pull out components to wire up. With the newer addition of HDMI ARC (which I had known nothing about prior) it made this so simple. One ARC HDMI runs from receiver to TV and that’s it. All other components have input to receiver which made it extremely easy to set up and a big reason why I was able to put the cabinet so far from the TV. I also made a floating shelf with in-wall power and speaker wire access for my center channel speaker since it has a powered sub built in and needs to be plugged in. For any one who cares; all Definitive Technology speakers except sub which is Klipsch and the receiver is Onkyo.

Overall very pleased with the turn out. No wires and no clutter. This is our family room/play room for the time being until we move forward with an addition down the road, it’s serving us well.

looks nice but Audio Return Channel is convenient and can simplify your setup however it might also mean you don’t get surround sound and it definitely means you won’t get the high-resolution audio formats from blu-ray
so for the best sound quality it’s still recommended to use individual HDMI cables to link to a sound bar or receiver when you can :<)))

Hey Tony, just noticed your note. All good, my receiver and all components are housed in cabinet and utilized high speed HDMI cables to connect directly to receiver; blu ray, cable, game console, etc. Only thing HDMI returns are TV apps.

Have your say...
