Need help in choosing a home theater system

#1
Hi all
I want to buy an affordable and good quality home theater
My current home theater is samsung HT-TP33, which is an old model
I found these options in my research:

1 - Onkyo HT-S5805
2 - AVR Yamaha RX-V585/685 + Speakers Yamaha NS-F51، NS-P51، YST-SW315 + 2 speakers for dolby atmos
3 - AVR Onkyo TX-NR585/686 + Speakers Monitor audio bronze + 2 speakers for dolby atmos
4 - AVR Onkyo TX-NR585/686 + Speakers Jamo S803/805 & J10/J12 Sub + 2 speakers for dolby atmos

For a room of 20 to 25 meters. The room will be completely acoustic and will not have any windows
My budget is in the price range of these systems
Which one do you recommend from these systems or any other system you are considering?
(Please give me a simple answer, because my English language is not perfect)

Hi @Reza-D :). I see you created your post after our brief discussion via PM :). (Shame there haven't been any replies though) :(. Otherwise....

COME ON PEOPLE'S, LET'S GIVE THE GUY A HAND TO CHOOSE AN HT SYSTEM, LOL :)!!!!

I'd also state what your absolute MAXIMUM budget is @Reza-D? (600, 800, 1000, 1200, €, $ or £'s) :)? Others who have purchased either a complete AVR + 5.1.2 package, or those who have purchased a separate AVR & a separate 5.1.2 speaker system could also give you possible recommendations based on their own equipment that way :).

As requested, I've briefly scanned through the specifications of all of the AVR's although I haven't looked at the speaker packages. I'd sort your choice of AVR out first, then choose your speaker system once you've settled on an AVR.

1. Onkyo HT-S5805. Seems quite limited!! From what I've very briefly scanned through of its specifications; it doesn't even appear to support DLNA for example, (however, I was quick scanning). Are 4 x HDMI inputs also going to be enough for you? By the time you've added your U9-H, a gaming console, a Blu-ray player & cable TV/satellite TV/TV set top box (or similar inputs), obviously no room left to add anything further at all in the future, (at least not without resorting to HDMI splitters) ;). It's definitely a budget AVR + speaker combi package compared to the other Onkyo AVR's that you've listed. There's nothing wrong with that at all, however, spending an extra 200-300 now could save limitations or headaches later on.

2. Yamaha RX-V585. Seems to be a better AVR to option 1 right across the board. Supports all major HT considerations or will do by future firmware updates :). Definitely mentions full support for HDR, HDR 10+ & Dolby Vision too. Also has support for zoning if you need that too. Again, limited to 4 x HDMI inputs. I'm assuming you've determined that you'll never need more than 4 inputs now, or in the future?!?

3. Onkyo TX-NR585. Much better than option 1, no doubt there. As with the Yamaha, supports all major HT considerations & has some decent extras & features. Also has the extra HDMI inputs to give you greater expansion should you need it in the future.

However, If you can afford to go up to the Onkyo TX-NR686 instead you're obviously going up from the budget range & landing firmly within the mid range territory which you'll definitely notice. The Onkyo TX-NR686 looks to be a solid AVR right across the board, it's THX certified too & it's absolutely packed with many popular features :). It certainly seems to be the pick of the bunch that you've shortlisted. If it was on my shortlist & against the Yamaha, I'd personally spend a little extra now & go with the TX-NR686 :).

support for HDR, HDR 10+ & Dolby Vision
Thanks my friend
You are right about the importance of supporting HT features, such as the number of HDMI inputs and support for HDR+ & Dolby Vision.
So I ignore option 1. Also, yes, 4 HDMI is enough for me
My budget is between 600 $ and 1,200 $

But in fact:

1 - I want to know the difference between the options mentioned in terms of sound quality, surround effects and power output.

2 - I want to know what is the difference in quality between these options?
(If the quality difference is not too high, I will buy a cheaper model.)

3 - And I want to know which speakers and AVR's are compatible with each other?

4 - If you know a system is better than these options, please introduce

Will drop you a PM with full details, ultimately you'd be better off on this particular subject over on the AVForums ;).
