I'm in the middle of upgrading my HT system and have a few questions. First is room choice. I have two candidates, one is 16x14 and open to the breakfast/kitchen on one end ... and the other is 10w x 17d closed (currently an office). Both have 8' ceilings. Current setup is in the 16x14 room but am interested if the 10 x 17 room would work better (would not be dual purpose).
Second is speaker selection. I have 4 M&K S5000 THX's and an MX-5000 sub I bought recently. I'm not sure whether to try to find some dipole surrounds (have found some ss-150's or triad gold on wall) or add more S5000 THXs as surrounds. Also, I'm looking at grabbing something like an angled center or horizontal center channel since I don't have the space under the TV and am thinking of either a S-125 center or S-150AC (to stay all MK) ... or be really different (speaker wise) buy a set of 3 triad gold classics I found locally as the front stage and move the S5000's to side / rear.
I'm connecting these up to an Anthem MRX 700.
Would love some opinions on both.
