Help Picking Out A Home Theatre (Dolby Atmos)

Looking to get a home theatre setup for my living room.. the room is approximately 15ft x 15ft (the ceiling is slanted) about 12ft high when entering the room and 9ft high when you hit the wall that is the back of the house. Entrance from kitchen and lower ceiling height would be the left and right side of the room with my tv placement.

My budget is $2000-$3000. Tv not included, already have one.
Mainly looking for a receiver, 2 front (left and right) tower speakers, a center channel speaker, subwoofer, and two rear channel surround sound speakers.

Only things that are a must for me are Dolby Atmos, DTS-X support, HDCP 2.2 or later, arc or eArc output, and room on the receiver to add 2 more speakers later on if I want.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot

You can't get Dolby Atmos with a 5.1 system. You need at least two additional ceiling (or high on wall) mounted speakers. Even better with a 4 or 6 speaker Atmos configuration, for a 5.1.2/4/6. Begin to educate yourself before embarking on this project. Go to the Dolby site and look at the various options. Try to avoid the Atmos speakers that bounce the sound off the ceiling, as they are not very effective and will not perform well in your slanted ceiling scenario.

Once you have chosen a proper Atmos layout, we can assist you in choosing proper speakers, sub, and receiver.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.
