Here is what happened. I had an old 50" Samsung DLP and a $300 Samsung 5.1 home Theater in a box. After researching for countless hours I recently bought the LG 65 C7, Marantz SR6011, Oppo 203, and the following speakers:
Klipsch Reference Premiere 5.2.4
Two - RP-280F Floor Standing Fronts
One - RP-450C Center
Two - RP-250S Surrounds
Two - R-112SW Subwoofers with 2 - WA-2 wireless subwoofer kits
Four - RP-140SA Dolby Atmos speakers
My original intent was to just go with two 140SA Atmos speakers and set the on top of the front 280F speakers so they would fire up. My wife didn't like me getting big speakers to begin with and when I set the atmos speakers on top of the fronts, she didn't like that, especially since that interfered with using the light switch. I was also unsure of an adequate bounce off the popcorn ceiling so I hung the 2 atmos speakers at the top of the front wall. Once I did that it was easier to envision 2 more atmos speakers so when I found an open box deal I bought them. Fortunately I had not purchased the Marantz SR5011 as I had planned. Now with the 5.2.4 I needed the SR6011 to provide the needed channels.
Keep in mind what I had before and being inexperienced in good home theater, my ear is not on par with most on this forum, but I am tickled pink with what I hear now. Even my wife has come around after giving me nothing but guff during the whole process.
So I guess in answer to your question, with my situation, I would still get these speakers.
