Purchase advise needed

Hello! I am hoping there are some experts here to share their opinion on whether what I was recommended by a Genelec dealer was an overkill or if I should go for it. So, I'm looking to upgrade my home theatre composed of a 65-inch LG TV, LG soundbar and subwoofer. The use case is mostly movies, sports and music. The space is a loft of 75m2, the viewing & listening area around 7,5m by 6m. We were recommended the following: two pieces of Genelec 8341A SAM supported by Marantz AV7706. Neither "user" is a professional, so this is for consumption of music, movies and sports only. No need to use the speakers outside home. I enjoy good quality but, as you can see, my experience and level of home theatre systems so far is pretty low key and limited, I'd appreciate the forum dwellers' honest opinions on this investment. I hope I've been able to give a sufficient description of the need & situation. Thanks tons!!
