Nonetheless, onto the interwebs I went to figure out what sound system is going to run in the family room. Crutchfield was running some awesome specials.... $50 off amp, $300 off subwoofer, $200 off surrounds, and $30 off each other speaker. Below is what I ended up with:
Receiver/Amplifier: Onkyo TX-NR636
I picked this receiver for its value and the ability to handle future HDCP 2.2 HDMI security along with Dolby ATMOS sound.
Fronts and Center: Polk 620RT
I may change these in the future with something angled towards the listener
