Home theater/ family room ideas
I have been trying to decide on what surround system I am going to put into my new "theater" room, and was looking for some ideas. I believe that I want a 7.1 or 7.2 system. I am not set on any particular equipment, but there are a couple of things that must be. First the TV will be a LG OLED 65" mounted on a retractor going up into the attic along the 11'6" wall, and the speakers must be installed in the ceiling. For now the seating will be 10' from the screen, with the future idea of putting a second row in on a platform behind it. As you can see from the sketch, the room is going to be fairly large, bu off the 11'6" wall it is open into the kitchen.
For the receiver, it was suggested that I use a Sony STR-ZA1100ES, but I don't like it since it doesn't have bluetooth or wireless in it. I was looking at a Denon avrx2500h. At less than half the cost, it has what seems to be everything that I would want in it.
For the speakers, I am totally lost. Some places you look and they say that $50 Micca speaker work better that some $400 speakers and at other places it is just opposite.
My budget for the speakers and receiver is going to be around $2,000-$3,000.
Thanks in advance on any advice.
