Thanks wood. That was very helpful. When I looked at the wood frame of the apartment yesterday I was quite overwhelmed as to what exactly I wanted/how to set it up. I sent your post to the team mgr and hopefully he'll be able to tell me just what is doable and the approx costs.
I'd love to have ceiling mounted Atmos speakers, but I don't think that's realistic, especially considering I have upstairs neighbors and the ceiling is 12+ ft high. It's a 100yr old converted school, so it's in a brick building, which will hopefully lend to better soundproofing.
Also, you can't see it on the floor plan, but on the kitchen side there is a horizontal wall that comes down for the heating/ac. I could easily mount side speakers there, but probably not going to bother.
If my neighbors start bitching about the sound, I'll probably end up going back to headphones again. That's why I don't want to spend any more than I have to. I still need to buy a new TV as well.
I'll definitely have more questions as I go along. Right now I have a Pioneer VSX-90 receiver, and would like to get smaller speakers, the best way to mount them, etc.
Oh, btw: The cable box is going in the small closet on the far wall with the front door with the support post, not the one next to the W/D.
I still have decided where to put my PC yet.
