A photo or drawing/layout of the room would help. Is there a reason why you're not considering a projector setup? Do you have a lot of ambient/natural light to deal with?

Recent updates :)

From your list, I would choose the SB2000.

The Rythmik L12 would also work. And if you can stretch your budget a bit (and have no constraints on height), take a look at the Rythmik L22. It...

If Atmos isn't a requirement, you could look also for a used/refurbished Denon X4000 as well, which will process 9 channels.

I went with the RP-250 for my front LCR mainly due to space considerations in my living room (roughly 11'x16', open to the kitchen). They work well in the space I have and the volumes I watch. But,...

While this is true, SVS have claimed these speakers also work well flush-mounted. How true this is, I can't say either way.

I think your room size and layout should work fine for 5.1.2. I would actually suggest wiring for 5.1.4, just in case you ever get the itch to expand. If you're already going to run a pair of speaker...

I don't think any receiver/subwoofer combination will do what you describe - you are in effect asking to send two separate signals to the sub - the left/right surround, plus the LFE channel. Even if...

Wait for the Denon 4300 to be released later this year, and see how the price compares to the 6200. At the very least, the price should be lower once the new models arrive.
