As cliched as it may sound, this was indeed my long-awaited dream to set up my own theater and get lost in a parallel universe. Obviously, it took me quite a while to build this from scratch and the hunt for the A/V equipment has been one of the most exciting parts of this journey.
In this post, I would like to share with you the details of my listening space and will try to keep it concise.
Any feedback/suggestions are appreciated.

AV Stack- 7.1.4 HT Setup
Speakers
: Dali Oberon 7s, Dali Oberon Vokal, Dali Alteco C1s, Q Acoustics 3030i (Will be moved to a stereo setup in the future and will be replaced with another pair of Dali Altecos)
Heights: Polk Audio RC80i (4 nos)
Sub: Rythmik FVX15 Servo Sub (This right here is a monster, make sure you have proper sound insulation or friendly neighbors)
AVR/Power Amplifier: Marantz SR6015, Emotiva BasX A-300
TV: Samsung 55" Q95T
Cables & connectors: AmazonBasics 14 gauge OFC, AmazonBasics Banana Plugs

I am using AmazonBasics Room blackout curtain, does a pretty good job in blocking the light.
Future plans are to improve the room acoustics and to replace my surround back speakers which are currently overkill with Q Acoustics in the back.

Thank you all for your visit to the post,
Regards,

Thats one sweet looking and surely a great sounding setup. Congratulations :)

Just one thing , do invest in some fans for the AVR since its in a pretty cramped up space. @Love4sound has got few for his setup and they would be very helpful here.

Thank you @fLUX.

And for the ventilation I am having the cabinet door open during my listening session temporarily and have set the eco mode on. I will definitely have to consider installing fans. Thanks again for the contact.

Great stuff. Did you try placing the sub behind your seating position. It will get room to shine and your speakers can also get some side space and toe in.

Audyssey flat setting has done a pretty good job in maintaining a flat curve by removing some of those low frequencies from the left tower, since it sits in the corner. I have set crossover to 80hz, although they can go down even further (not recommended since these towers are backported and need some space around them).
I will definitely consider moving the sub to the back of MLP in the future since I would be needing a helping hand in moving it around :) .
