Sure, I mean, not final products though, but I have more or less narrowed down the budget:
- below 2k USD for the AVR (for a total of 9 amplified channels, I will use my amp for left/right channels). Some models I'm considering are the Yamaha A3080, Onkyo TX-RZ840 or the TZ-RZ1100, Denon AVR-X4500H, Marantz SR6013/7013.
- 2/3k USD for surround, rear surround and ceiling speakers (I have already the main front left/right speakers + amp). Some models I'm considering are the Focal Dome Flax or the B&W M1 for surround and rear surround.
- 2/3k USD for 4k Oled TV (like the Sony A9G or the Panasonic GX-950)
- source will be Apple TV 4k
We should have Dolby Atmos throughout all the chain, from the source till the AVR and TV.
Do you have any suggestions?
