Having now seen the Series X in both vertical and horizontal orientation inside various TV cabinets I much prefer the vertical orientation but my cabinet just doesn’t have the space for this, my only option would be to wall mount but that’s not something I really want to do.
Does anyone here have suggestions for any cabinets that fit 55" TVs that also have the space for the console in vertical?
While it’s currently sold out, I purchased the following TV stand the other day and should receive it Thursday or Friday. The shelves are adjustable/removeable with the space being 15 inches vertically so you would have a few inches of extra space.
I was originally going to buy the 57" TV stand (same exact model as below) but I went with the one that was longer length wise. This way, I can lay down the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 horizontally and have plenty of space all around for full ventilation.
14 days ago I made a thread about this too and you might find some good ideas there too.
Those Ikea ones actually aren’t too bad at all. Yesterday’s XSX preview videos had some good cabinets for the console as well. I’m still not sure if I’m gonna get a cabinet for it or maybe attach a plank to the wall.
I have something similar to your pic. I bought 2 sets of hand-forged iron brackets off of Etsy that I’ve mounted on either side of my TV. A friend of mine cut me off 2 planks from a 100yr old barn lumber he uses to do furniture projects. They are 12" deep & 24" wide. The have gray driftwood look to them. I got them specifically to get rid of my entertainment center. I already mounted my 55" TV to the wall using a swivel arm. It’s going to look tight when I get my Series X on there.
As for dust, no worries there if you go vertical since the top is the exhaust. The dust can’t land on it if it’s always going. Might want to invest in a cover on those rare occasions it’s not being played on. LOL
That sounds great, a glass topper. So far I can’t seem to find that on the Ikea site for my country, but I’ll keep looking. This is a nice one. The only other problem I’ll have is that my current cabinet has a huge drawer full of music albums and some games. But I can always put that in a different room.
I went into the IKEA store to look at the unit first hand, and then I went and picked the bits up myself individually
I took a picture of the display one, so I knew what the bits were I wanted to pick up
