Hi all, need some help in deciding the right setup of speakers for my house (currently being constructed). The family room for the home cinema/entertainment is 3.8 x 3.7 meters (12.5 x 12.3 ft), height to the ceiling is 2.7 meters (9 ft), mostly open area, minimum walls (as pictured in the floor plan below). The TV is 55 inch LG55LW5700, to be located on a TV cabinet. The receiver that I'm eyeing on is the Denon 3312 (mostly same features w/ 3313 w/ lower price). Usage will be mostly 60% movie (3D movies for the kid), 40% music . Thinking about doing a 5.1 setup. Not looking for house-shaking bass. Maximum budget for speakers: GBP 2,500 (max), excluding cables, AV Receiver. Already done some search in this forum, including the sticky, on what's the rule of thumb (eg.room size, whether the cinema room is a closed one or partially open,etc) in deciding the speaker type for a home cinema setup: floorstand, or bookshelf. I'm not yet looking into which brand of speakers, but more on which type at this stage. I'm including 2 sketches: - the floor plan of the 1st floor where the family room will be located at - the different perspectives of the family room so people can have a better feel of what the family room will look like (as it's not yet finished) Many thanks in advance for the help.
