Thank you everyone again for all the advice, information and links provided. There is certainly a lot here to go on. Now its time to start trying them out for a change. Once I've ordered the Denon X3600H and it arrives in working condition I will then place orders for the following speakers & subs below. Unfortunately, I will only be demoing products of interest with no hassle return policies and very minimal or free return shipping. I'm only interested in speaker cabinets with either a black ash/oak or matte black finish. Once I've narrowed down the pair of bookshelf speakers and sub that sound great together in the small space they will be used in. I will then purchase the matching sub for a dual setup and finish out the LCR with the same brand of bookshelf speakers chosen along with rear surrounds. Then I will try and match the ceiling Atmos speakers with a similar design as the surrounds with reasonable high and mid range performance to keep it close to timbre consistent that my budget will allow just in case. Meanwhile as I wait for the price drop on the Denon I'm currently preparing the HT so it will be acoustically sound for the final demoing. All cables, adapters, appropriate surge protectors and ceiling mounts have already been ordered. I will order the rear speaker stands in the correct height and front L&R wall mounts afterwords. I will shortly be purchasing a 100" screen from Silver Ticket while currently the acoustic treatment and equipment cabinet will be constructed from scratch so I can allocate the extra funds towards increasing the budget on the speakers. Hopefully in the next couple of months it will all finally come together at last. Eventually, I will upgrade the projector with one that allows for lens shift and higher contrast among a few other needed features.
