Hello Audio Gurus!
Yet again, I turn to y'all for guidance. My wife and I are in the process of renovating a town home that we recently purchased. This was a foreclosure property and my wife promised that after all of my work painting, fixing electrical and plumbing issues laying flooring, tile etc, I could finally put together a media room/living room. Until now I have just had a 2 channel system (Aperion Intimus Towers) but am looking to move to a 5.1 system. I need to find a bookshelf system and receiver to make this happen!
Room dimensions: 14.5' long x 12' wide x 8' tall, openings on two walls and a staircase on one side (crappy diagram included)
(wife wants the Vizio M70-C3, this will not factor in to budget)
Subwoofer: SVS PB1000
Usage: 80% tv/movies/gaming 20% music
Clarity at lower volume levels
AVR supports streaming music from my MBP
AVR supports 4k video
Currently looking at Ascend CMB 170 L/R CMT-340 C and HTM 200 surrounds, AVR Marantz SR5009 ($499 on Accessories for less) , however am wide open to suggestions. Please have at it!
