Hi.. Looking at pictures in "Your System" section, I wonder if there is any weakness of putting electronic stuffs near or behind sitting area. It will require the longer cable for both main and centre speakers, but it saves the length used for the rear and surround back channels.

I am planning to install my av room with all systems put behind.

Thank you Mr Andrew, I thought the use of long cable will reduce sound qulity.

A few potential issues, if you're putting stuff behind:

1) Using remotes. If you're lucky, you might get enough bounce back from the screen or the ceiling, but you might find you need an IR repeater (in which case the problem then (especially with several devices) becomes 'can you position the emitter somewhere suitable to cover all of them').

2) Seeing equipment displays. Not a problem for things with on screen displays, but awkward for things that don't if you're cycling through options or setting volume with nothing playing.

3) Long video cables if you're using a TV (or, as a positive, shorter ones for a projector).

4) Access. you still need to get to the kit to change discs etc, so with a low rack you need a gap to get at it (and a line of sight within the kits acceptance angle from the remote control or repeater emitter for IR remote controls to work).

radovantz:Thank you jerryC and Andrew, maybe i should re-think again about my idea. Putting all stuffs at the front might give much more convenience than behind.

I guess there's a reason that 99% of people have the stuff at the front/under the TV. Now you know why.
