    Finally done with the new setup. Wall-mounted GX 77". The old bookshelf speakers + receiver made way for a Sonos Arc with "wireless" Sonos One SLs as surrounds.

    Also, I modified one of the cabinets to be ventilated. When one of the consoles is on, the silent fan in the back wall turns on and keeps everything cool

    That looks pretty fucking awesome.

    Edit: will also need to ventilate an AV cupboard at some point, so tips greatly received!

    Nice!
    But then I would think so as it's very similar to my set-up :)

    Looks small to me :p

    Except I know the Sonos arc is wider than my alcove (and thus alcove fitting TV), which means my TV would look teeny tiny next to that!!!)

    37cm. It's an IKEA kitchen cabinet (METOD). Available in various heights, widths and two depths (the other is 60cm I believe).

    I used a Noctua 120mm fan (NF-A12x25) in the 5V PWM variant. The 5V means that it comes with a USB adapter, so you can power the fan with a USB port. Noctua makes a little thingamabob with a dial that you can put between the fan and the USB adapter, so you can decrease the rpm to a level that is silent. But that only works with the PWM variant (there's 4 variants of the NF-A12x25 in total: 5V PWM, 5V, PWM, and none).

    I used an old iPhone charger to power the fan and plugged that into a Philips Hue Smart Plug, which you can turn on and off like any other Hue bulb.

    I use HomeBridge instead of the native HomeKit integration of my LG TV, as the HomeBridge plugin is way more flexible. I created "wall switches" for each TV input that turn on when I switch to those inputs. And then I created an automation in the Home app to turn on the Hue Smart Plug when an input turns on.

    Or you can simply leave the fan running all the time as it's silent anyway and uses practically no power, but where's the fun in that?

    Sony are idiots, the PS4 Pro is the deepest console ever so I had to turn it sideways. Even the gigantic PS5 is 4cm less deep!

    Ha, your photos from a while back actually inspired me to go this route :-)

    Yeah so the air can circulate freely. If everything works as it should, there should never be a need to open that cabinet anyway.
