I'm thinking of spending approx £800 on a Marantz NR1602 receiver and Tannoy HTS101 speakers. My only problem is that I am now starting to realise that due to the positioning of the equipment I will be breaking several rules of suround sound. The only place I can site the TV and associated equipment is in an alcove in the corner of the room created by the cimney breast. The TV points out at an angle across the front of the chimney breast in order that it offers the best viewing angle for all those seated at various positions of the room. Therefore, I proposed keeping the speakers small (hence the Tannoys) and sitting the fronts just beneath the height of the TV shelf, so only approx 300mm from the floor. The centre could stand on the top of the stand where the TV sits at approx 500 from the floor. I myself cringe at the thought of this, but space constraints leave me no option. My question is that given theses circumstances am I wasting my money on such a thought and would I be better just accepting that I may be better off jsut purchasing an all-in-one package and enjoying sound that is a step up from TV speaker sound?
