Question How did I do?

We recently bought a new house and I have a room dedicated to media. It serves for movies and games with the occasional TV. Though my budget was not the biggest, and the room is fairly small (12x12) , I'm curious on your opinions on how I did considering the limitations. I have been upgrading and adding on for about a year since we moved in. Here's what I ended up with.

75" Samsung Q70R ($1,699)
Onkyo TX-RX830 (5.2.4 config) ($499 from Accessories 4 Less)
Def. Tech ProCenter 2000 center channel ($159 on eBay)
Def. Tech ProMonitor 1000 L, R channels ($249 ea.)
Def. Tech ProMonitor 800 Surround L and R ($119 ea)
Def. Tech ProMonitor 600 (x4) Atmos ($120 for all 4 on Craigslist - great condition)
Martin Logan Dynamo 700W (x2) Subs ($499 for one, the other on sale for $299)
Apple TV 4K
Xbox One X (Games and 4K Blu-Ray Player)
PS4 Pro

I'm "done", at least as far as my wife is concerned though I may add an additional amp and 2 more channels to make it a 7.2.4 in the future.

You must have gotten that 75" "Q" at Frys. I don't have a Frys within a 1000miles so I had to settle for a Q60 for $200.00 less.

But I'll say this....having built several 12' x 12' Bedroom conversions into what I call "Virtual Reality Theaters", every one of them sported Painted Screen Walls with 100" to 110" diagonal images. Cost? MUCH less than the Q70....about $1000.00 total.

Pretty darn sure your gonna be happy though, with that Q burning your retinas.
