Whilst I am the new owner of a VP160, I have yet to hook it up. The reason being is that it doesn't fit in my current entertainment unit. As I am searching for one that fits my needs, I have a secondary unit...however, it would require the TV (with stand...56lbs) to sit on the VP160.

My question is this...would this be ok? I don't want to damage the TV, nor the VP160, but reaaaally wanna hear this puppy roar.

Thanks!

Sed, it would seem to be highly unlikely that the 56lb weight of the TV could harm the VP160 in any way.

Funny, I read "picts" and immediately thought of the tribe of human sacrificing, wild men in Robert Howard stories.

I'd like to see a side profile and on from the main listening position.
I'm curious to see how well it works.

I've got a 60" plasma sitting on top on my vp180. It's been there for about a year now.... I did have to get some 2 or 3" 1/4 20 bolts to level the 180. The bolts are used at the back to provide a level surface for the TV to sit on...

This is an idea I'm also interested in. My tv is also 56lbs and I wonder if the vp160 will be comfortable supporting that weight for a long period of time?

My guess is that there's enough internal cross-bracing to hold a small car (don't try this at home...), but the bigger concern might be making an imprint in the finish.
