With the consoles this time around not being exactly the smallest ever, it seems we might need a new AV cabinet or a different solution to give these consoles a nice place in our (living) rooms. My current AV cabinet where my C9 takes up all space up top has 3 spaces. The current systems fit here, but the new ones absolutely won’t. I could try and find a new cabinet that has space for the systems and TV, but I have a hard time so far finding a really good one and that also looks “acceptable” in a living room.
But maybe ya’ll have some some suggestions ,maybe not too pricey either. If it’s a really nice one I am willing to shell out 250-300 bucks. But I’ve also been thinking about maybe going to Ikea, try and find something that I can attach to my wall, something firm and put the XSX on there.
My problem is dust… I don’t want the consoles out in the open when not in use. Atm they are in a cabinet, with doors and the back taken off. When I play I just open the door and there is great airflow. Well, the Series X won’t fit standing up inside the cabinet, so might have to lay it down, at an angle to get the airflow front->back. That will not be pretty…
I can always stand it up next to the TV, but then it’s out in the open with dust and crazy cats just waiting to chew up a cable or two.
The Series S would have no issues, and the PS5 is too big to even fit in the cabinet and too fugly to be anywhere it can be seen so that is a nope until the release a slim/not-eye sore-version in a few years.
What concerns me is the holes in the top of the console, feels like a lot of dust would just fall into the console? Maybe it is possible to use something to cover up the top when not in use? Or would that cause problems? Hmmm
Just gonna move my One S over a little bit and stick my Series S right next to my TV, standing up. Thought about putting it where my Switch dock is, since I never use docked mode, but the ports would be on the wrong side.
Yeah, that’s true. I don’t know how much harm that could potentially be. I guess when not in use you could put a cloth over it perhaps? I was gonna say some plastic foil except this is where the heat will leave as well.
