As a kid, our home entertainment center was a simple cart that housed the TV and a VCR. Not very impressive, but it worked fine. I think it might have had a little storage shelf, but I have no idea what was put there. There was no such thing as a remote control so every time we wanted to change channels we had to make a little trip across the room to switch channels.
The only thing I can think of that would make me want any sort of cabinet type home entertainment center in the future is if I were to get one of those fancy schmancy lifts that hook onto the TV and allow it to recess into, and lift out of, a nice wooden cabinet. I would consider that. Especially if it had a remote control to run the lift. That might be too good to pass up.
Even space limits are not an issue any more with the last innovation of the wall mounted, flat panel TVs that can keep you living room exactly as big as before, while delivering hours of great fun. There are sets suitable even for a bedroom, featuring a DVD player in combination with a flat panel TV.
