Even though I am very much into gadgets and home theater, our setup is very “retro”. My cabinet is this huge hulking behemoth of wood with doors on the top with the TV and a few IR inputs behind it, and doors on the bottom that hide my HTPC when it is hooked up, my receiver, DVD player, VCR, wireless router, and a few others. I really like the setup.
Along with the theater cabinet all of the furniture is heavy wood, big wooden tables, and lamps to match. The only thing that I really want in here that would complete the setup is a grandfather clock. Clocks are just one of those things that no matter how much technology changes and gets better (and in some cases worse) they pretty much stay the same. They do their job. Might as well have something attractive as well as functional.
