So the above is the layout of my lounge and furniture can be adjusted but not really moved around as this is primarily a family living room rather than a cinema room.
Sofa is stuck against the wall due to space and the tV sits on the unit directly opposite it.
Room is approx 5.2m by 3m
My current kit is listed below in my signature but the processor and all speakers (except maybe the sub) will be replaced. I am thinking of getting the Marantz SR7012/3 or perhaps the SR8012 (suggestions welcome) but not sure about the best speaker package to get. Total budget is ~£3,000 for speakers & receiver, but preferably less.
I am assuming a 5.1.2 layout is going to fit my room best? But I need help with the best speaker layout.
I am thinking of floorstanding front speakers as I will use the system for some music listening. But main uses will be 60% TV, 30% movies and 10% music.
All help will be greatly appreciated.
