Sorry for the cross-posting, this was in the New Members forum too.

I’m building a new HT from the ground up, although I still have most of my old gear, which consists of:

Onkyo TX-SR 876 receiver
Paradigm sub
Paradigm middle channels
PSB Image center chamber and rear surrounds.
(I gave away my Klipsch RF-3 floorstanders)

My new HT aspires to 4K, with 7.1.4 Atmos surround. I’m ready to go all new except I’ll probably keep the Para sub. I was never overly fond of the PSBs.

This is a basement room. Rectangle 24' x 14', 8.5' ceiling. One window, small south facing, with a well, left side of the room. This is a dedicated, dark room. Entrance to the rear, on the right as you face the opposite end. Approximate budget. $5-7.5k+. Need a TV. I would love a projector, but I want 4K and that’s probably not doable right now. Thinking 4k OLED TV, c. 70"

Wires can be run into the walls. This will be primarily a theater system, but I like to watch music video so ability to reproduce quality audio is a must. Interested in Atmos. Thinking either 5.1.4. or 7.1.4.

This is for a family of four. I also need seating. I have an idea of what's out there but need some real world experiences. I'm an audiophile and have a separate 2 channel setup upstairs, but this system is 90% for video.

I am willing to consider all suggestions. Thanks for any help.

Bob,

Is your budget just for av equipment, or for seating etc too? That makes a pretty big difference on what we can recommend.

I’ll go out on a limb and say it includes seating. However I’m famous for “home renovation snowballing”. So there may some wiggle room in that number, depending on circumstances over the next six months.
