So been a while since I last posted anything here as I moved house and now have a new headache project on my hands. In the new house there is a nice room with a vaulted ceiling that had a grand piano in it. We are not musical people so we (I) decided to look at converting the room to a new living room for us to enjoy the space. The room while not ideal for a home cinema (lots of windows, vaulted ceiling etc....) will be used alot to chill and watch movies, sports, etc so I would like to do the best i can when it comes to AV. Looking at the room I am going to put a projector screen that I can pull down in front of the windows and a nice L shaped couch facing it so I think i am sorted on the visual side (for now) My problem/question that I would like some users advice on is the Audio side. The vaulted ceiling.....not sure if this is a good thing or bad as I have seen mixed opinions....either way I would like to look at keeping the speakers off the ground (other half, kids etc....). Would mounting the speakers on the beams be an option and point them down towards the couch? I am thinking of a 5.1.2 setup as there is a beam ideally located for Atmos speakers. Cheers for any help....been out of the game for so long I don't know what the market is like now so any suggestions for AVR's and speakers are welcome P.S. If I am completely wasting my time on a 5.1.2 setup and would be better off with a soundbar or something similar don't be afraid to shout!
