Advise on 2.1 to 5.1

HI, I have a home setup where I have 2 x 8020 connect to a sub 7040 - system is connected to a Marantz AV7705 preamp. The Room is around 7 x 5 meters or so; standard living room size I guess. Listening distance is around 3M.

I am considering going for 3 x 8030 Genelecs and move to a 5.1 system; moving the 8020's to the back of the room to cover the rear. I mainly wtahc films/series/spotify from my AppleTV.

I feel that my current 8020's are bit small to fill the space; hence planning on moving to 8030s in the front.

Thoughts on what I'm looking to achieve and choice of equipment?

 

Any input is much appreciated as I'm not an audiophile and don't have much knowledge about audioset up in general - I just enjoy good audio :)

Many thanks in advance!
