When you decide on a sub because you have floorboards you'll want to isolate the subwoofer from the floor. Either spikes or some other method.

Thant's good you have 2 kitchens for the sound to travel through before your next door neighbout hears it. Shame about the radiator. Can it be moved?

Sounds like you need to learn quite a bit before spending too much. You got the bug for sure but as BigBoss says, one thing at a time. We are all learning of course. If you learn all the steps to get the best out of what you currently have then you will be better prepared to set up any new kit you get.

Here's an option. Would you be able to set you kit up in the corner it is currently in on a diagonal instead of up against the corner?

 

i dont think so now, to the left of the setup all the way to the back is a window and a door and theres no plug so thats not an option. i dont know if a radiator can be moved i'll ask my dad about it since he's the landlord. although is it costly to put it elsewhere or have it took out completely? could move setup then. yeah i'm gonna isolate the sub. was going to buy the superspikes, whats difference of superspikes m6 vs m8? was also going to buy a big granite chopping board or something, also heard of the auralex gamma if that's better than a chopping board?

the top 3 subs i'm considering are the bk monolith, svs pb-1000 and the dali ikon sub mk2, (because its the best looking sub i've seen) and still decent spec

Now that you're not even acknowledging the suggestion of adding a sub, I'll say this for one last time & I'm out.

For better results from your existing speakers (and before you waste more money on different speakers), get a sub (they also have a try at home policy) and set your speakers to "small". 

That way, the lower frequencies will be diverted to the sub which can handle them the best. Your existing speakers won't have to concentrate on those lower frequencies, and therefore do justice to other frequencies. Your system will sing.

That's all I have to say. I'm out.

 

by the way you mentioned a demo at home..who does this? as richer would charge £100. (thats if i was to get a sub from there) bk dont do home demo :/ i think i read that nick at homesounds or something does but i'd rather get a mono than a pb1000 even if i could demo the svs.

If you buy the sub online, as

If you buy the sub online, as per Distance Selling regulations, you have 7 days to change your mind and return it. That allows you to demo at home. Read the terms carefully as you're expected to pay for return postage.

thats if sony 1040 gets firmware update to support atmos..

Unlikely. It's 7.2 channel; you need 9.2 for effective Atmos (although 5.1.2 is possible). Only future receivers will be Atmos enabled.

so does this mean until i get a new av/r i wont be able to experience dolby atmos at all? Sad

Unfortunately no. There won't

Unfortunately no. There won't be many films coded with Dolby Atmos initially, so you have some time.
