Hi Guys,

I am new to this forum. I am planning to set up Dolby Atmos Speaker Systems ( 5.1.2 ).

But initially planning to set up 5.1 Speakers and latter 2 Ceiling Speakers.

So need suggestions and views on AV receivers and Speakers. My Living Room Size 13x25 ft.
My requirement is 70% Music and 30% Movies.

Initially i visited couple of stores in Hyderabad and after that i thought of the below combinations.

? AV Receiver: YAMAHA RX-V583 / Onkyo TX-NR575
? Tower Speaker: YAMAHA NS-F160
? Center Speaker: Yamaha NS-C210BL / JBL Arena 125C
? Sub-Woofer: Yamaha SW300 / BIC America F-12
? Surround Speakers: Sonodyne Bi-Polar

My Budget is 1.2 Lac. Request for views and suggestions.

Thanks,
Krish

Make wiring provision for at least 4 ceiling speakers for Atmos for any future upgrades. I have recently done so while renovating even though I plan to upgrade to 5.1.4 & 4k when such setup becomes cheaper and practical to run. Most of the user reviews say that 4 ceiling speakers are a remarkable upgrade over 2 ceiling speakers .

From your list Yamaha RXV 583 and BIC F12 seems fine to me. But avoid Yamaha Speakers. Look at Polk RTI/Signature series, ELAC Debut series, Taga, Boston Acoustics, etc for better experience.

Just a small thought, for 70% music do you really need Dolby Atmos setup? A stereo setup can do the job. Or if you are unsure you can start with an AVR and two fronts speakers for now and build later as required. In that case you can spend on a much more musical AVR, like Marantz SR 5012.

Look for lease expensive AVR.. I think Pioneer VSX 932.. Approx 50K.. https://www.hifimart.com/pioneer-vsx-932-av-receiver.html?search=pioneer&description=true

But if you can get hold of any Atmos / Dts X capable 7.2 AVR under 50K, then fine..

My Living Room Size 13x25 ft.My requirement is 70% Music and 30% Movies.

Your rooms seems large.. Look for adding dual identical subs.. Taga are easy on budget - https://www.hifimart.com/taga-harmony-tsw-120-v-2-active-subwoofer.html?search=Taga&description=true

But initially planning to set up 5.1 Speakers and latter 2 Ceiling Speakers.

For 5.0 speakers, consider Taga platinum series..

For Fronts + surrounds - https://www.hifimart.com/taga-harmony-platinum-s-90-sl-bookshelf-surround-speaker-pair.html?search=Taga&description=true

For center - https://www.hifimart.com/taga-harmony-platinum-c-90-sl-center-speaker.html?search=Taga&description=true

You can complete AVR + 5.2 set-up.. Later when you have budget, you can add ceiling speakers..

Don't worry if you can't demo a product.. You are not loosing anything..

The products you mentioned have significant prices.. Just one/two speakers from any of these brands can eat your FULL budget..

I understand this would be your first set-up.. So skip the demo, back yourself and take the decision.. important thing is to stay as much as possible in your budget & not end up with only AVR + 2.0 speakers :)..

elangoas,

In terms of value for money and quality, I have shortlisted the following combinations. Could you please let me know which one is better?

TAGA HARMONY PLATINUM S-90 SL Front/Rear Speakers (Skipping Platinum S-100 for rear speakers. I think, rear speakers handle only <15% of movie. Any advantage of using S-100?)
TAGA HARMONY PLATINUM C-100 CENTER SPEAKER
BIC AMERICA PL 200
DENON AVR-X1400H RECEIVER


BOSTON ACOUSTICS A25 or A 26 Front/ Rear speakers
Boston Acoustics M Center Channel Loudspeaker
BIC AMERICA PL 200
DENON AVR-X1400H RECEIVER

I can buy above speakers from Himart. Which is the best site to buy DENON avr and wall mount brackets for front, rear and center channel?

All the wiring is already done with good quality cable for 5.1.4 layout. Any other items are required?


KRISH: As discussed, Dealer is Optimus in KPHB road number 1. He has demo room with taga harmony speakers, jamo and dali.

It is opposite prime hospital, above SBI.

Either Taga (or) BA should do fine.. If you choose speakers with wall mount provision, you can avoid stands/wall mount brackets.. Think all the Taga speaker models mentioned by you has wall mount capability..BA center doesn't have..

Very likely, buy a good quality voltage stabilizer (copper wound) with surge protection and fairly good operating range, 140 to 230v preferably.

I have a pair of small cube speakers (dual cubes), 30W hanging from my ceiling. have thought of changing them to different speakers having different form, and 50-70W power. i'll be getting them from SMDAudio, Navi Mumbai. will go to take an audition soon.

but, are 2 pairs of ceiling spkrs really reqd to experience atmos well?

P.S. - I shall post some pics of the new ceiling speakers later on.

Hi Krish,

Congrats for the new setup and I am sure you would enjoy the setup. Better to have a stabilizer and surge protector.
Using v-guard crystal plus and belkin.

Where did you mount the 10 DFS? Please also post your review/impressions.
