Looking at your room configuration, I don't see how you can easily do a 7.1 speaker configuration. You don't have enough room between the rear of your couch and the back speakers to get any added benefit. You're truly wasting your money going past 5.1 in this particular living room unless you can put the A/V equipment in a different room where you can spread out your surround speakers.
Could you possibly increase your speaker budget a tad? It's pretty darn tight as it is. You'll find that your options and the speaker quality will increase quite a bit if you can.
The Jamo set is only slightly better than what you currently have. I would think you would want to take the next step up in audio quality, which will demand an increased budget outlay. Not by a huge amount, relatively speaking, of course.

This'll kick the snot out of the Jamo package and lay waste to what you have currently. Edited by Dan Hitchman - 4/28/13 at 10:59am
