So Black Friday is approaching and I have been saving up for speakers. My first official 5 channel setup, if that. So I wanted to know what you guys think is a good route. I have been shopping around and trying to see my options.\n\nI got so far Elac Unifi 2.0 bookshelves, debating on Focal Chora 726\/826. Paradigm has some nice offerings. I have a local audio shop with Kef Q950 pair for 1000.\n\nTrying to debate if it is better to go with a full 5 channels or go with 3 channel higher end.\n\nI really like Focal, and own a set of their headphones. Just kind of tough deciding what is the best route. \n\nMy Budget would be in the 2000 dollar range and maybe maximum 2500. I bought the Elac Unifi 2.0 and with my lack of experience with passive speakers I really enjoy them. Honestly 0 complaints, but that should be expected.\n\nI am also considering my room size. Which is fairly small, which makes me lean back towards other speakers. I was looking at the Focal Aria 926, but they are suggesting placement and listening position which is impossible in my theater room based on the size. So I strayed away from that with that in m\n\nA friend of mine suggested that I only go with 3 channels as my room is small and that should definitely suffice, which just got me thinking should I sacrifice quantity for quality. 10’x16’\n\nEven if I did buy 3 channels I still have Elacs which may not blend very well as surrounds or so I understand.\n\nAlso I have considerably shifted from more time on movies to music, as speakers make the listening experience more immersive.\n\nLastly, I am very unclear on measurements and performance and that is usually related directly to quality speakers. Which is where you guys maybe able to step in and narrow my search down.
