This is Srikanth from Hyderabad, I currently own Bose Soundbar 700, Bose 700 Sub & Bose 700 surround speakers. Due to small living room, I know I have made an mistake going with soundbar & not a proper HT setup.

Now I am planning to sell this Bose & get proper HT, my living room measures 11 x 12, with 65inch TV on 11 feet side.

I am new to HT and don’t have any idea about this stuff, need experts advice in short listing proper HT with a budget of 1.5 lakhs, if I don’t get decent products in this price I can go with 2.1 and add rear & ceiling speakers in future.
  • AV receiver which can support Atmos 5.1.2
  • Looking for book shelf speakers front speakers (Don’t have space for floor speakers)
  • Decent Sub

Hi Srikanth,
You'll get a good seven-channel receiver for around 70K.
That will leave you with 80K for the speakers. Working backwards, you can cheap out on the ceiling and surround speakers (say within 30K)
Which will leave you with 50K for LCR and subwoofer, which sounds like a bit on the lower side.
You may need to bump up to around 2L for a good experience. Or alternatively, you can start with L-R + surround + ceiling within your budget and then add a sub and a centre channel last. I suggest this, cos you should see how the L-Rs work in your space without Centre and if you like it, you may not need one. So, you could start with a 4.0.2 set-up and then later add the sub.
As for brands, since you live in Hyderabad, there will be a lot of options. Please take the time and go listen to as many speakers as possible in your budget.
All the best.

Yeah I am also planning to upgrade in phases as speakers are which will be one time investment that should last for 15-20 years. Your inputs are really helpful.
