"Most expensive" does not equal "best".
No arguments there.

In all seriousness, if all you're doing is movies and gaming, best way to go would be to get 5 identical bookshelves on stands with a good sub.
5 x Ascend 170SE or 200SE would run you under $800 shipped:
Add a good medium sized $600 sub like a Hsu VTF-2 or Rythmik LV-12F and you're set.
Going with bookshelves, actually. Now only if I could find bookshelf speakers that produce the same quality of sound as their flagship floorstanding counterparts.
Actually planning on 4 identical bookshelves, 4 identical Atmos, a dedicated centre and a dedicated sub.
I'm curious as to why certain brands have speakers that cost the same as an entire system of another brand, and whether I would notice the increase in sound quality by going for a higher budget system. There isn't even a ranking for all the brands/speakers so that I can determine the best one in my budget.
Ooh good find. Thanks!

I'm assuming compression drivers are something that benefits sound quality? I'm not sure I need towers in such a small room though. What are the best bookshelf speakers I can get? (None of those $240K a pair ones though)

I HIGHLY encourage you to give the PSA speakers a try. I just bought 2 PSA MTM210ts and 1 MTM210C. These things are monsters. They are absolutely fantastic for home theater use and there is zero ear fatigue. I crank these things and never get fatigue.
I would go with whatever PSA speakers you can fit/afford and go with dual SVS or PSA subs you can fit/afford and call it a day. You will not regret it. Trust me.
Any mid level AVR will power these things to levels beyond what you can take and the speakers will remain crystal clear with 0% distortion. I like Denon because I've never had a problem with them. I would get the cheapest Denon AVR that has Audyssey Mult EQ XT32 and SUB EQHT to EQ your dual subwoofers separately. Monoprice 14 or 12 gauge speaker wire, banana plugs (any will do I use Monster), and 2 SVS soundpath subwoofer interconnect cables and you will be good to go.
Glad you commented here. So in addition to Klipsch, I've now also come across PSA and SVS. Also found this: https://www.reddit.com/r/Zeos/commen...ound_sound_51/
So, that link seems to have the speakers listed in ascending order based on performance/quality. It has PSA listed as the best, with SVS second. Although it doesn't have the Klipsch RP-600M on the listed, so I'm not sure how it compares. If price is any indication of quality though, PSA and SVS do seem to cost a bit more.
To be completely honest, I'm a big fan of the glossy piano black finish, so the SVS Ultra looks absolutely exquisite. Not sure how they compare to PSA in terms of sound quality though.
Built this SVS system on their website: SVS Ultra 5.1.4 Surround
How would this perform in comparison to the aforementioned Klipsch system and the flagship PSA system?

Thank you! Can't do in-ceiling, so I'll just hang it from the ceiling.
