Speaker Suggestions for Living Room

Hello! I think i am going to have a music (80%) and movie (20% of usage time) setup at my living room.

I like a lot an idea about automatic calibration acoustics, so I'm looking at 83** seres. Please help - what model is ok for my room sise? The room is about 4.8X7.1 meter. The draw with acoustics positioning (more or less) in on attached pic.

Thank you!

The bigger the better :)

So the speakers would be aprox 4m from the listening position?

I would recommend 8350A/8351A/8260A or bigger ones ( 1237A/1238A/1238DF)

Subwoofer needs?

Thank you!

One more question. What will be better - 2x8350 vs 2x8340+subwoofer? Will be setup 2x8340+sub worse than 2x8350? Looks like top flagship setup is too expensive for me. I think I can buy now 2.0 and a subwoofer a bit later. But, is 8340 is ok for my room or it will be too small?

No problem! :)

8340 might still work quite well in your room, maybe a little on the small side though.

If I were you I would go with the 8350As as 2.0 and maybe later add a sub(7370A) to the setup if needed.
