1st ever home theatre component help
From the title you maybe able to tell I am new to the home theatre set ups. I've been using these forums for the last few days trying to take in as much as I can, but decided it would be better to ask instead. So, I have a budget of around £1000-£1500, but could go up more depending on how much improvement I could get. I had decided on a Sony (the 1050) receiver but seeing they weren't well liked I changed. Right now I'm thinking about the Onkyo TX-NR636. It seems to be very future proof, which I like, and has pretty much everything I would need feature wise. However I have seen many people say they wouldn't recommend the Onkyo due to overheating issue, which is a concern. However where I really need help is with speaker choice. I watch films a lot, but I also listen to music a lot, and therefore need ones that are pretty competent at both. I have looked around at a few but I'm hoping for a little more direction so that I can compare ones that are good enough for what I need them for.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Not totally sure on room size, as we're moving house soon. I'd go with a standard 30 x 20 size room, I don't think its far from that.
Edit 2: I also live in the UK, so would have to most likely be things orderable off Amazon etc.
