1000-1500$ 5.1 or 7.1 system with this room ?

Hi everybody !

 

I recently installed a Projector (Epson 5020UBe wifi) with a 65 x 116 screen in my new living room. I actually use it with an old Philips 2.1 system that was lost in my parent's living, very bad quality one contrary to the projector. I use it with my PS3 (soon PS4 and a zappiti player for Mkv files and stuff)

I'm seriously thinking of investing in a new 1000-1500$ system that will last for many years even if i came to change the projector (or the flat). As you can see in the pictures, my living has the following specs : 

 

Width of the wall where the screen is set up (same as wall where the projector is set up) : 4,50 m
Length : 6m, so the viewing distance is approx. 5m
There is 1m between the wall (projector fixed) and the main seat (3 persons)

 

With that configuration, what kind of setup could i choose ? 5.1 or 7.1 ? With a 7.1 i'm afraid the space between the rear wall and the seat is too small. If i chose on-wall speakers, for the Surround left and right, where should i set up them to respect the 90-110° angle if possible ?

 

As for the wireless speakers, useful ? no loss of quality ?

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance for your advices !

5.1, with the surrounds just above the curtains, pointing down at your main seated position.

Wireless speaker systems weren't too good last time I looked at them, but that was a few years ago, so I don't know what is out there.
