So adding another Q800 or just get Q100 x 4 surrounds would be even cheaper (instead of Q800 surrounds).
Give Vanns a call.
If not, give Onecall & Electronics Expo a call.
Another option is the Revel Concerta line. A pair of Revel F12 shipped new is $1260. So matching center + surrounds is probably under $3K.
Yeah, I'm that member with KEF set, just finished wall-mounting Q800s and connecting the HSU VTF-2 MK4 sub, man that thing is a beast, it makes Q900s look small. The fedex driver called and sad that he will not carry that thing upstairs:). Blowing the roof off my apartment tomorrow.
But Q900s seems to be the thing I was looking for and for their price they are just awesome. They look kinda cheap but removing grills helps a lot.
I would guess $2,7k for the
2 Q900 Floorstanding speakers
2 Q800 Surround sound speakers
2 Q300 Bookshelf speakers
1 Q600 Center speaker
all new, no open boxes, free shipping, authorized dealer, the whole shabang.
then get a couple of SVSs or HSUs for 1K+ and you are set
let me know if you need help dealing with VANNS
