Hi All, Me and the other half have are planning on buying a new home in the very near future. we have been trying to budget for everything and she would like me to plan for a loft conversion strictly for a home cinema and yoga space. nothing other than electric supply will be installed in the loft space. We will have approx £37k for the conversion and all the kit. Realistically, I have approx £10 so spend on equipment. I have been researching on proposed set ups for the room which I would like to include; - fixed projector screen - projector - 7.2.4 atmos set up This will be mostly used for viewing everything by me inc Netflix, plex, sky, blue-ray 4k hdr material and also gaming on PS4 pro but depending on budget, would also consider it for music needs too, albeit not as a main priority. The main lounge will consist of a small sat/sub 5.1 for general use and will have a separate system for 2 channel music located somewhere else and will probably use my existing pro-ject/creek/kef r300 set up which is currently in my bedroom. so for this project, I am not looking for exact speaker models here as we have not got the property yet so do not have the dimensions to work with obviously; but am focusing on speaker layout/install. As this will be a blank canvas, the loft conversion will be built to accommodate the speaker layout as a priority so should not have any restrictions. My main goal is to establish what is best for that cinema experience. My first thought was to install a full kef in wall system consisting of; Kef Ci3160 x3 LCR Kef Ci200QL x4 S+R Kef Ci200RR x4 atmos xtz 12.17 x2 Now to be honest, I have always viewed in-wall speakers as a way to save space and be more pleasing on the eye; however I do not have these constraints and feel I would be paying for the inwall design rather than sq. I have not heard a full in wall install so maybe is a bit ignorant of me to make that assumption. I was then looking at the xtz M series which pound for pound are very similar priced to the kef in walls. Mk do an on wall solution with their S series and again is similarly priced. Now my last option would be to utilise some of my existing kit and just build on that which would save a considerable amount of money. - keep my marantz sr7010 and add a power amplifier (for LCR) - keep my r500's and add r200 and r100's for surrounds. Alternatively, put my R300's along with a R600 for LCR and keep the r500's for music system. If i decided to go for the r300/r600 route, including two xtz subs, four r100's and a power amplifier, i'd be looking to spend approx £3500 which is pretty much half the price of the other set ups and leaves a considerable budget for projector, and screen So with all that explained here are my questions; 1. Would the kef in-wall, xtz or mk sound be leagues above a full kef r series set up for home cinema? if so, what would you say is the better performer as all are similarly priced. 2. subwoofers I have decided will be a dual set up but most likely the xtz 12.17 or bk mono+. have seen numerous discussions about subwoofers recently so pretty much made up my mind on this; however any input would be appreciated.
