I have been an avid movie lover and gaming person. When bought a new house in 2018, I had bought a 55'' 4K HDR tv and a Blaunkpaunt Soundbar with sub for my gaming and movie needs.
Time moved on, I rarely visited cinema halls for movies. I used to watch it on my TV most of the time. Then I read something about called as AV receivers. After reading and learning a lot of things finally thought of upgrading something similar to this.
The initial thought was to upgrade to 5.1 setup within 40K budget. But then reading online about future-proofing decided to go for a 7.2 av receiver.
Here is what I got:
Pioneer VSX 834
Yamaha NSP41 5.1 speakers
Micca covo S for heights

After setting up everything was good, but the way my TV and Seating area is positioned, when I sat in the center there was a loss of bass. It felt like a deadzone. After trying to change the sub position and playing around for few days still I could not figure out a proper solution. Bass was perfect on the side couch area's.
Got a good deal on Taga Harmoney Tav606v3, having tower speakers would add a bit of bass.

so current setup is:
Pioneer VSX 834
Taga Harmoney Tav606v3
Yamaha SW050 as sub
Micca covo S for heights

Following things connected with the setup:
Xbox One X
PS4 Slim
Jio 4K Setup Box
Amazon Echo
Mi TV 4 55""
Acer NitroLaptop

Things planned for the future:
If I get a good offer on Pioneer VSX 834 will sell it and get an AVR with preout and more HDMI inputs.
BIC or Taga sub in range of 30-40K.
A decent 2 or 5 channel amp to go with the pre out AVR.

Yamaha NSP41 5.1 speakers are for sale if anyone wants only speakers without sub that too works with me.

Hope you like my setup and suggestions are welcomed.

How are the Micca ? Planning to get them as surround speakers due to space constraints.

Small Upgrade to my Home Theatre experience but rather a big one in reality.

Added a Taga SW212SE subwoofer and upgraded to Denon x3700.

Dynamics have increased. Audyssey setup was done using the MultiEq App. Have created multiple files and played along with them, following are the final settings I am using.

Speakers: Small
Crossover: 80hz for fronts and 120hz for Heights
Subwoofer is at 50% and in AVR it is set at - 2.5
Dynamic EQ is on
Dynamic Volume is off.

Dynamics EQ is a boon for people like me when they don't listen at reference volume.

Here is a in depth video I made for my friends and family members who always asked me about my HT. Its a very long video but I have added chapters, so you can skip to them if you want a specific segment.


Next upgrade in line after a year or so would be upgrading height channels and go for 4 channels maybe and adding power amplifier for front channels.

Thanks alot, main moto was to create awareness and help others what AVRs do.

I had heard about rugs and carpets, do you have any experience on them? How would they help me in general.
