I have decided to buy the Sony 55HX853 but its proving to be a nightmare to find a stand. I spent 3 hours the other night looking online and because the 55HX853 has a plinth the stand needs to be at least the width of the TV. Because of this there are very few available and I hated most of them. Then finally I found Deploy Max 9649 GB which I really liked - nice and simple...just what I was looking for.
BDI is distributed by Optimum International in the UK and I known them pretty well having owned two Optimum hifi racks over the last 12 years. The stand was showing in stock available to order on a couple of websites. But then I discover that its been discontinued! No dealers have ever held stock of it as all orders were fulfilled by Optimum as the distributor. Its still showing on both BDI's and Optimum's websites.
So now I'm back to square one. I simply can't find anything similar or that I like. BDI have another stand but I don't like it and its exactly what I'm not looking for ie wood or wood effect finish. I did like this Alpahson stand but its not wide enough:
So I'm wondering if anyone has come across anything similar they could suggest. I'm looking for a black stand with black glass with a middle shelf potentially for a soundbar.
