Home cinema setup: floorstand or bookshelf speakers? (house floor plan included)
Hi all,need some help in deciding the right setup of speakers for my house (currently being constructed).
The family room for the home cinema/entertainment is 3.8 x 3.7 meters (12.5 x 12.3 ft), height to the ceiling is 2 meters (6.5 ft), no walls (as pictured in the floor plan below).
The TV is 55 inch LG55LW5700, to be located on a TV cabinet.The receiver that I'm eyeing on is the Denon 3312 (mostly same features w/ 3313 w/ lower price).Usage will be mostly 60% movie (3D movies for the kid), 40% music . Thinking about doing a 5.1 setup.
Already done some search in the What Hi Fi forums, what's the rule of thumb (eg.room size) in deciding the speaker type for a home cinema setup: floorstand, or bookshelf.
Any other considerations that I need to take into account, you're more than welcome to give input.
I'm including 2 sketches:- the floor plan of the 1st floor where the family room will be located at- the different perspectives of the family room so people can have a better feel of what the family room will look like (as it's not yet finished)
Many thanks in advance for the help.
