    At the moment I've a relatively old HTiB set from Harman Kardon which just about fits under the tv. I am satisfied with the sound, but the right speaker is distorting because of a fall and I'm suspecting a custom set of speakers/sub/receiver would probably sound much better anyway, right?

    I'm just asking if it's possible to have a proper setup (5.1)? with this space or if it's better to find a different room for the home theater needs.

    Here's a few pictures of the room/corner in the room. Imgur

    The sub is normally next to the couch in the corner.

    If you want to find speakers to recommend, I live in the Netherlands. But my main question is if it's achievable with this space. I don't think there's enough room.

    Budget for the whole audio schebang is around 1200 euros, preferably 1000 euros, though.

    Nothing wrong with that space, its larger than my cinema room with 5:1:2 sound.

    The room is large, but there isn't much room for proper speaker placement. Is there?

    Perhaps look at inwall discreet speakers for a 5.1.2?
    You need speakers that had disperse sound really well and give you a good sound stage. Kefs maybe..?
