I'm flexible on the equipment as I haven't purchased a single item yet, but I'm about to kick it into high gear. I get what you are saying about the sound, which actually leads me to another question I forgot which is 7.1 possible in this room?
This is actually a 3rd floor room. I don't have a basement unfortunately, though I guess I shouldn't complain since it's 3 levels haha
