I'd like a bit of advice for the experts. My wife and I recently bought a new house and will be moving in a month or so. Fortunately I will now have a dedicated room to put our HT, where previously I had to have it in the great room and had to deal with some limitations. There I could only do 5.1. Now in this new house, I can really do a lot more.
I've attached a pic with the dimensions of the room, it's really quite large.
Here's the components we currently have in use:
Haven 72" console/tv stand
Samsung 65" JS8500 4K tv
Denon 4311 receiver
Energy RC-70 as mains
Energy RC-RCL center
Veritas VS dipole/bipole surrounds
SVS SB13-Plus Sub
I also have these in storage but not being used:
Energy C-6 (pair)
Energy AC-300 center
Any suggestions on how to best set up the room for speaker placement, to get the most out of the system and room? I was thinking the TV go against the 14' wall, the Veritas VS on the walls adjacent to the couch, and the pair of C-6's in the rear against the 11' wall? And later I'd try to pick up another pair of RC-10s (or RC-30/70's if RC-10's weren't available), to use as front wides? I know with the wides it's important to have as close a timbre match as possible.
Would the RC-10, if I could find them, be better as height speakers instead of wides?
Also, FWIW, this is an existing house built in 1993, so not a purpose built dedicated HT room. This was a family room/play room, so normal ceiling height,etc.
I've not looked into Atmos, so no idea what's needed there. I can't see the 4311 being replaced anytime soon, but you know how that goes.
Thanks for any and all advice!
