    I will give more specific needs:
    My friend have Sony STRDN1080 plus Onkyo SKS-HT588 speakers and sounds are very good but my living room is almost two times bigger 4m x 5m, speakers I was looking at is Pioneer Dolby Atmos ones, in the beginning 5.1 and maybe later on 7.1, also want some WI-FI speakers in differrent rooms. Will be nice to have in reciver latest technology. Hope you help me with the choose.

    If you want to extend with network multi-room, Yamaha has musiccast products (considerable collection of different device types including all their AVRs except the most basic), Marantz and Denon have the Heos system - of which I know nothing. Not sure about Sony and others.

    Personally, I would go with Yamaha, but then that's what I'm familiar with and basically happy with. Smartphone apps (AV controller and musiccast apps) are quite decent, considerable collection of speakers, streamers and other devices as well.
