A wall mount will definitely grant you the versatility you’ve been looking for – allowing you to easily and quickly adjust the viewing angle of your television. A TV stand, on the other hand, lets you set up your home theatre system in a snap, so you can start enjoying media only moments after plugging in your TV. While wall mounts occupy less space, TV stands offer a more traditional visual aesthetic which some may prefer. Whatever choice you're leaning towards, we’ll cover the ins-and-outs of selecting the ideal solution for your ideal home theatre system.
Choosing the proper mount is entirely dependent on the size and weight of your television. Future Shop’s MountFinder tool can assist you in locating the right mount for your new TV. Alternatively, users can refer to their television’s VESA number. For a more detailed description of this procedure, take a look at Future Shop’s online wall mounting guide.
