Flat panel TV sets with screens of 60 inches and above can weigh over a hundred pounds. If you do not feel comfortable hanging these rather heavy appliances on your wall or on mounting brackets, you can always install them instead on a solid and sturdy console TV stand like the Pinnacle TV56073 Plasma LCD DLP Stand.
Sporting a contemporary design and finished in shiny black, the Pinnacle stand makes an elegant companion to your home theater system. It has an open shelf design that allows the free circulation of air around your audiovisual equipment keeping them cool during those marathon viewing sessions. To provide additional support, a wide post is incorporated at the back of the stand to brace the shelves. The front corners of the stand are softened with bevels at approximately 45°.
In addition to the top shelf on which the TV is perched, there are two other shelves. The top and bottom are made of wood, while the middle is of glass. These are joined to the stand's panels with cam bolts, assembly screws, and wood dowels. There are also specialized shelf supports fastened to the side panels and a metal bar that runs the full width of the stand for the glass shelf.
The top shelf has a carrying capacity of up to 150 pounds, which is strong enough for most TVs with 73-inch screens. The two other shelves, on the other hand, can hold up to 50 pounds each, which is also more than sufficient for your Blu-ray disc player, game console, cable box, extra speakers and amplifier, as well as your DVD collection. To balance the heavy weight of the TV set, however, it is suggested that the heavier audiovisual equipment be installed at the bottom shelf.
The Pinnacle TV6073 Plasma LCD DLP Stand has a width of approximately 65 inches providing enough room for a 73-inch TV. It is almost 16 inches deep and it stands 17.5 inches.
