Is that considered a big room as far as speakers are concerned? Or still small?
My plan is to mount the TV on the wall above the fireplace and mount a left and right on either side with a center below it and get two read speakers for 5.1 surround sound.
I was originally looking at the Bose Acousticmass mass 10 V with the Yamaha RX-V485BL receiver, but I want to know if that’s just a name brand id be buying or not? Is this receiver even good, and what type of speakers would be good for this size room? Any help would be appreciated.
Bose is way over priced! You can generally can a setup that will easily outperform them for less.
What is your budget?
Listening habits? moderate? loud?
system use? music? movies? how much of each?
Are you in the US?
Any WAF or aesthetic concerns?
Is mounting over the fireplace set in stone? Can you set up on the long wall?
