I had the same issue. Onkyo TX-NR808 was a monster and couldn't fit in my stand so this is what I found… http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=prod3040201&navAction=push. This stand looks very nice (IMHO) and everything fits. In addition to the Onkyo, It is home to an Emotiva XPA-3, a Sony 400 disc DVD changer, a DVD recorder, and a blu-ray player with room to spare. I have my VGC on the top shelf just below the screen. I hope this helps you out.
Sounds like solid advice to me, thanks for posting!
