ejhartman, that isn't a tv setup, that's a desk!

I am way too anal for your setup. Those monitors would drive me crazy for not being the same size or eye level. I want to get a 2nd monitor for my home, but I know I will just have to buy 2 new monitors. What is the thing with the numbers on it mounted under the desk? Also, I remember you telling me about your PC when you were my conselor, but holy cow that thing is tiny. I imagine no possible way to get a video card in there unless you get like the R9 nano http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi ... isNodeId=1

I would love to get a nice 4k TV, but I somehow snagged a ~$550 60" 1080p 3 years ago that is still going strong. Can't replace that until I have two rooms deserving of an ultra large TV.

I feel my 37" TV is a bit inadequate. But it's not the size that matters right!?

We thought about a new TV but Sarah's the only one that watches TV and she doesn't care. I do most of my show watching on my 8" tablet before bed or while doing something else.

Sound bar works flawlessly, now I just have to worry about the knock off power cord that wilkins got me starting on fire.

My tv's speakers were in the back or something so we could have it turned up to 100 on some shows and still feel like we weren't hearing it at all.

Compared to the sound bar on 20 (max 50) and still a little loud.

Subwoofer will be awesome if anything ever actually uses it other than music.

How big of TV? Do you need the mount to swivel?
Stationary mounts are pretty cheap now, I got mine from Harbor Freight for like $20 and it is meant for big tvs.

Maybe some of the $99 5.1 surround sound bars are still left in stock. I'll look today.

Mounted my TV yesterday and set up the home theater system. The sounds is really cool. Maybe I'll take pics tonight if you're good.
