I would like to know what kind of setup my brothers and sisters on LG have in their home theater, and how happy they are with it. What is the primary use for your system? Movie watching? Music? Gaming? Channel surfing? Sports?

Four years ago I began researching a beginners setup for a HT after I bought a new TV. My search started off by looking into a home theater in a box, then it evolved into a full blown passion. Needless to say, it can be a very expensive hobby. I enjoy researching products and how it would tie in to what I already have. While keeping future upgrades in mind.

Currently I'm looking into Dolby Atmos. Truth be told, that was the planned endgame when I first caught the bug. Now I feel like I'm finally ready to make the final stroke. I'm wondering if anyone here has an Atmos setup, what gear are you using, and how do you like it?

Right now I have a 7:1 system. (7 speakers, 1 subwoofer)

Receiver - Marantz SR7011
Towers - Polk Monitor 70
Center Channel - Polk CSiA6
Surround Sides - Polk RTiA3
Surround Rears - Polk FXiA6
Subwoofer - SVS PC13 Ultra

Looking to go with 7:1:4 (in-ceiling) after Atmos.

Again, share your entertainment specs, wants and desires lol.

Lastly, these new OLED TV's are I need to get my hands on one of those.

I'd avoid Atmos until there's enough content that supports it. If you got $ to burn go for it, but I'm a huge bang/buck guy with my purchases.

I've always been more of a car audio guy than home theater. But that set-up seems sweet.

All I have is a cheap little Philips soundbar + sub I picked up as an open box item at Target for like $50. I only really use it for sports or "movie-night".

It does have a bluetooth function so once in a while I will sync my phone and play some music when I'm on the computer or something.

I'm not really ever home enough to justify spending more than a hundred bucks on something like that. I felt strange spending almost $400 on my tv last year.

I used to do my own installations back in the day but the game has changed so much. Any recommendations on an installer?
