Hi everyone. I’m new here and looking for some advice.\n\nI watch pretty much everything - from MCU to the best picture noms every year. We love animated movies, too. I want the best experience but am not willing to put out $10k. What should I do for this ~$5k max budget But would really like to stay sub-$3k if possible by not upgrading the tv.\nI listen to them frequently for background music while working from home but the main usage would be home theater.\n\nHere’s what I currently have:\nLG 65UH615A\nYamaha RX-A880\nCerwin Vega floorstanding Re 30\nAthena Audition AS-C1-1 center\nJBL PSW-1000 sub\nPioneer SP-BS22 LR bookshelf\n\nThe CVs have an odd sound that is repeatable depending on the song or movie I’m watching. It seems to happen at a bass level - when there’s a loud boom, for example.\nWe got them from my wife’s parents and I know they’re great speakers but they weren’t taken care of. There was rat or mouse poop in them that we cleaned out. Things like that. We tried rehabbing them with a kit to replace the rubber seals around the cones but it didn’t change. I hate watching something and hearing that crackle and I know it’s going to happen when I hear certain music in a movie, like when there’s about to be a jump scare.\n\nThe sub, I don’t understand it. Also got it from my in-laws. I don’t know why it has rca right and left input. I have a 1 to 2 rca cable plugged in there now but whenever I move the sub around, there’s a horrible noise \/ humming from it. I think it’s the connections.\n\nThe Pioneers, we just bought. I like them for surrounds.\n\nThe Athena, I know nothing about, got it from my wife’s parents. Seems serviceable.\n\nWhat I’m thinking about (~$2500 cost)\nKlipsch rp-8000f floors ($525 each)\nKlipsch rp-504c center ($562)\nKlipsch SPL-120 ($517)\nKeeping the Pioneers\n\nMaybe I’d get the Klipsch Atmos R-41sa ($344\/pair) but I’m unconvinced.\n\nI have a huge room but we cut it in half with the couch. I think I can figure out placement and I won’t have the speakers up against the wall. I have room for 1 to 2 ft away for the floorstanding.\n\nMy questions\n-are those good for the price or is there something else I should be looking at?\n-is the tv ok for this setup? I really would love a 75 ($1800) or 86” LG but I think I’m ok with what I have for now. I just wish the colors and contrast were better.\n-will my receiver be ok for this setup? I know it’s not a $1500 received but it seems good enough. I see a lot of people recommending an amp and I have no idea how the receiver and amp work together or how costly it is.\n-what is everyone using for best streaming or do you need to buy a blu ray? We have an older Xbox one and a firestick 4K. I’ve done some research and seems like Apple TV 4K is the best for streaming 4K and Atmos from the major streamers. I could build that into my budget for $180. We have the highest subs to everything except apple (Netflix HD, Hulu, prime, Disney+, and I have a plex server).
