Embarrassed....Audio furniture help
Well, I swore I'd never let a woman dictate my two channel system but here we are. Wife and I bought our first new home, I've got a small but adequate second living area for my system. Problem is, as mentioned, my wife. Setup will consist of CD player, AppleTV unit and integrated amp. May add a streamer at some point but we'll cross that bridge later. I'm using a pair of bookshelves and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Here's the rub....She is demanding an A/V credenza, so speakers sitting on the credenza on either side of the TV. Of course I'd love a vertical audio stand and be able to use speaker stands but it's too open, too many exposed cables, blah blah, you know the story.
Question of the day: can anyone point me in the right direction? I need minimum 18" depth and all the awful Crate and Barrel stuff she recommends isn't up to my audio standards. Needs something with doors for a clean look but I still need my IR signal to work. Because the speakers aren't going on stands, I'd like something at least 20" tall. A lot of the fashionable stuff is 14-16" tall, putting the tweeters way below ear level in the listening position.
Any help would be much appreciated.
