Requirment:
Looking for a 7.1 ch package in India.
The system will be in 10 feet x 20 feet area (Viewing distance is 10 feet).
Except sub-woofer, speakers should to be wall mounted.

System is for general TV/movies experience as well as Indian music. Looking for clear and soft/warm sound.

Experience:
Heard speaker packages from PRO-FX Yamaha with Polk speaker, KEF and Bose lifestyle system, JBL, Genelec speakers.
Found Yamaha and Onkyo receivers very bright in sound but poor in vocal and shrill the sound. At least the the system in my budget.
I found Bose speakers are good for low volume and for movies but not for Indian music. Also cost factor.
I tried many sound bars with virtual 5.1 sound, but is something under performance, so not in list.

Finaly, based on my experience I found following combination is good for my requirement.

Option 1 (Will it be more bassy experience?)
AVR Marantaz SR5012 (7.2) 87K
Center Speaker Polk S35 23K
SubWoofer Polk HTS12 40K
Main Speakers (Front Left & Right) Polk S20 40K (20K X 2)
Suround Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Front Above Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Total 2,22,000/-

Option 2 (My preference)
AVR Marantaz SR5012 (7.2) 87K
Center Speaker Polk S35 23K
SubWoofer Polk HTS12 40K
Main Speakers (Front Left & Right) Polk S15 20K
Suround Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Front Above Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Total 2,02,000/-

Option 3
AVR Marantaz NR1608 (7.2) 55K
Center Speaker Polk S35 23K
SubWoofer Polk HTS12 40K
Main Speakers (Front Left & Right) Polk S20 40K (20K X 2)
Suround Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Front Above Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Total 1,90,000/-

Option 4
AVR Marantaz NR1608 (7.2) 55K
Center Speaker Polk S35 23K
SubWoofer Polk HTS12 40K
Main Speakers (Front Left & Right) Polk S15 20K
Suround Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Front Above Left & Right Polk S10 16K
Total 1,70,000/-

I prefer SR series than NR, since sound quality differs is what I understood, based on review and comparison, since could not get chance to experience these side by side.

Please help me decide/ suggest system which will meet my requirements.

You have a good budget, and room size being 10 x 20 (more lengthy), would suggest you to consider a 5.1.4 (or) 5.2.4 Atmos set-up.

Pro FX also deal with Denon AVR.. Consider Denon x 4300 / 4400 a 7.2.4 capable AVR and complete a 5.1.4(over heads) in your budget now..Your choice of speakers are good.. Consider a single model Polk S10 itself for all speaker location.. If you need to mount them on ceiling, make sure they have mount thread, so you can use external speaker brackets..

Usually Pro FX provide fancy discounts very well ;).. If you are buying AVR & speakers from Pro FX, you can sweeten the deal (or) at-least insist on complements :)..

There are some options with speakers better priced..

Check online as well, the Polk S20 prices are much lower, also audition Elac & Dali
