Since i just purchased a Panasonic GZ1500 it's time to start thinking about an audio system. Ideally I would like to realize a 7.1.2 possibly with the 2 "Atmos speakers" positioned on the floorstanding front speakers.
The TV is positioned centrally on a wall with a width of 3.70 m, distant from it around 0.22 m, placed on a TV cabinet with a width of 1.75 m, then 0.975 m of space on both sides where to place various speakers. The sofa, 3.20 m wide, is positioned at a distance of about 2.40 m from the TV panel and is far around 1.40 m from the rear bookcase where I intend to place the rear surrounds. (I have attached images to make the idea better).
Therefore, first of all I doubt whether the distances quoted are sufficient to recreate a decent Atmos effect with the bounce of the sound on the ceiling, height 2.70 m, in the viewing area. Then obviously I have to evaluate which products are the most suitable.
About the budget it is difficult to say, we say that coming from a 5.1 system with Wharfedale Diamond Series 10 and Sub Velodyne CHT-12Q I would like to take a leap forward, but at the same time not even go with a "Ferrari".
So, from the first research I was interested on a Denon AVR-X4500H with Klipsch speakers (2x RP-280FA, 1x RP-450CA, 1x SPL-120, 4x RP-400M), but of course I'm opening this thread just because I'd like suggestions.
Thanks in advance and greetings.
