Without knowing the exact layout or size of your living/dining area:

Best: A pair of Sonos Fives

Good: A pair of Sonos Ones

Classy: A pair of Sonos Architectural in-ceiling speakers powered by a Sonos Amp

Portable: A pair of Sonos Moves

But consider a Sub too to go with the Fives or the Ones.

Glad you are enjoying them. Be careful, it is an addictive habit. 😊 One other consideration besides size and layout is whether you are looking for active or passive sound, meaning if you are entertaining a lot and just want something in the background or if you are hanging and want to macimize your experience. 

room size is 12x 24. thinking ill go for a set of 5’s and another sub i can hide in corner behind sectional. just watched 1st movie with the arc and sub. i thought it was good playing music but the movie was where it was unreal.the 4 month wait for the arc and sub was worth it. every time the local chain had it they were gone
