klipsch is cheaper in US even after importing but you can check with TCA if it is cheaper locally

i rem you have mission lx2? have you tried using it as atmos, maybe you can share your experience with it.

price vs fidelity is up to each own. even if you spend more on atmos than front pair who can say you are wrong? sore eyes maybe?

Hi!

I'm trying to build a setup for my new HDB.
I am building it around the Marantz SR6013/SR6014 receiver, but I want to keep the budget up to 2000 s$.
So, my speaker package options are limited to Mission, Wharfedale, Polk audio or used sets.
Any recommendations? it's a small 3room HDB, but I do intend to add 2 speakers for 5.1.2 atmos sooner than later.
If you have any cheap finds both in terms of the Marantz receiver (don't offer me onkyo or others) or the speaker packages - I'll be happy to consider.

Thanks!
So, first step was finally taken by buying a slightly used Wharfedale Crystal 5.0 set from @benedium - thanks man!
Next will be Sub-woofer, and AV receiver, but I'm in no hurry whatsoever..

Mission lx series dont have atmos speaker. Even the wharfedale atmos speaker costs more than the mission bookshelf speakers. Also lx2 is too big to mount on ceiling or even wall. Will just use small cheap satellite to try out. Not gonna spend a lot for atmos. Will rather save for better fronts and ground level speakers.
