I currently have an Arc (behind the camera) plus Gen 2 sub (behind the couch) plus a pair of One surrounds on stands (shown) and just upgraded the One’s to Era 300 (which arrive tomorrow). The floor displays what happens when our dog gets a new squeaky toy. The right side is open to the dining room with a wall maybe 12 ft away.
Right now when I tune the system I sit in the middle of the two surrounds for the initial settings but when people sit next to either surround it is too loud with the surround by their ear.
I also bought new stands for the Era 300’s but now I’m wondering if I should wall mount them. I’d rather not.
I was also thinking of moving the couch toward the TV a bit (maybe a foot) but the better half will strongly object.
Anyone have a similar setup?
