Hello everyone, I am completely new to Home Theater systems but am just planning to upgrade as we’ve just renovated the front room. I am using a Denon AVR-X2300W receiver, have a fairly large room (6.15m x 6.15m x 2.35m) and am looking for a 7.1 surround sound system. Probably have a budget of £5000 maximum but wouldn’t mind getting speakers and sub and adding 2 later if this is advisable to get better sound quality with my current budget. I was was thinking about Klipsch Reference Premiere, something like the option below I’ve seen on another post but would like any advice possible.. KLIPSCH RP-8000F as front speakers KLIPSCH RP-504C as center KLIPSCH RP-600M as rear speakers KLIPSCH RP-500SA as side speakers KLIPSCH SPL-120 as subwoofer Look forward to any guidance and advice from more knowledgeable people. Thanks, avnewb
So I finally have my own space where I can set up a real (have always had cheap all in one systems lol) home theater. I bought a Samsung 65" curved 4K TV and I could really and (would so appreciate) any help someone could give me on the theater part. I'm reading and learning but still kind of lost lol. So I'm putting it in my finished basement the space is (from back wall by bar to the TV) 20'x16' so about 320 square feet. Seating is kind of shaped like a Diamond. I purchased a pair of R-26F speakers to start (thought it was a great deal and they had really good reviews). I can return though if there is something that is way better out there. The speakers came with a R-10SW subwoofer (again can return). Do I need a second sub? I'm looking at the RF-250c for my center (but open to other suggestions.) However no clue on the receiver (was looking at a new Sony STRDN1080) but I just don't know what is best. Would like to stay at about $600 or under if possible. Though if I needed to I could go a little higher. if I really needed too I could wait a few more pay checks and go up to 900-1,000 but that would be absolute max. I would prefer to only do that if it was going to be a huge difference. I also am not sure about the rear speakers? Do I just get something cheaper or is it worth putting money into those as well? i will be using this for movies and music however the priority is movies. Love movie night and really want to have that (as close as my budget allows) movie theater sound. I have about $1,000-$1,250 (right now) left to finish this project (if I wait I can go up to $1,500) much higher my wife is going to kill me lol. thank you so much for reading this and for any advice anyone can provide.

I am setting up my first home theater to replace the Sonos setup I just spent $1800 on and will be returning. It sounds good, but not true surround and pricey. My question is this. I was thinking about using one of these two set ups and would appreciate some good advice. I am getting a 7.2 receiver for future upgrades. 1. Front and back - 2- R-15M Center - R-25C R10SW 2. Simply replace the front with the R-26F. What are your thoughts...good first system? Thanks!
