What you have shared with us so far is a shopping list for gear. Your Dad's wish is for the room is the WOW factor, we need to see the room plan, How it will be constructed for sound isolation, how it will be finished to look great and your plans for acoustical treatments. Looking at speakers is never a wow. this is a room I did that IMHO has a lot of WOW. Also for your Info this is a snobish theater construction group we don't get too excited over a room based on a TV. You might have better luck on the general rooms section of this forum. On your plan that furnace room location really ruins what could be a nice 19x24 home theater. Double doors aren't the best choice for a high end WOW theater due to limitations on sound isolation.Over 120 views. Am I missing any pertinent information here?
