Barley, sorry to hear about your health, but congrats on the speaker purchase and welcome to the EMP family. Don't worry too much, I am not expert either. Getting your system to sound pretty good isn't too hard, getting it to sound the best it can, well, takes a little work. Even a poorly set up system will sound so much better than TV speakers. For me, it has been a gradual evolution. Move a speaker a little, listen, if I like, run YPAO.
A couple movies that will really give your system a good test run...Live, Die, Repeat and Interstellar (be forwarned, don't turn the volume up to muc...people have blown speakers), Battle for LA, Guardian of the Galaxy, Fury...all movies with very active surround tracks and great bass.
Sooner, that front stage has an intimidating look to it!
