Please help! I am in the process of choosing equipment for a home theater/entertainment area. It will be used for 80 percent movies, 20 percent music. I am not an audiophile but would like the system to sound good. The room is 17x45x13. The couch is about 14 feet from the tv which is mounted over a fireplace. My budget is $6000-$10000. I was considering def tech mythos 10 for lcr, gem xl x4 for surrounds, 2 Hsu VTF-15h subwoofers, and denon 4311 receiver. I have grown skeptical of the on walls but I am limited with center channel options due to the tv mounting. Please give any ideas as to what you would suggest. I am open to on walls and floor standing, although my wife would prefer on walls. Thanks

Beautiful room.

You can get (relatively) high quality L-C-R speakers that attach to the TV and mount, that are aesthetically pleasing. Blend in nicely. Look at Leon and Bay Audio.

Surround sound in that room is a challenge.

Cables run already, for any speakers and hidden equipment?

You may want a couple speakers above the bar too, maybe replicating the L-R channels, and for music.

Maybe 2 controllers/remotes, too.

I'd splurge on the LCR speakers, and go cheaper on the surrounds.
