Is it overkill to have floorstanding speakers all around? Should I just look for some good bookshelf style ones for the rear instead?

There is no such thing as overkill. That's what freezers and Ziploc bags for for.

Go for it. I have on 5.1 system that has only two floorstanders, and a 7.2 that has 4 (with a center that could be a floorstander).

The smaller one is for regular television viewing, some music, and so forth.

The other is to drive away door to door salesmen.

There is no overkill unless the freezer breaks down.

Thanks for making this thread! I remember the days I used to lay on the floor as a kid and feel the music coming from the speakers. I also found this article really helpful: Im from Switzerland so its in german but its easily translated through DeepL or Google Translate

Hi folks, Ive been lurking for a while now but am now hoping the community may be able to help me.

I am new to home cinema and am looking to purchase a surround sound system.
I got myself a Samsung QE55Q9FN in 2019 but am now looking for a surround system.

The TV has a OneConnect box. Do I still require a receiver with this?
Am I correct in thinking that the TV doesnt support Dolby Atmos and with that in mind am I better going for a 5.1 system?

Any help in suggesting a system which performs well but offers good value for money would be great.
