If u r going 4 atmos wif ceiling speakers, better 2 go wif 2pairs 1 pair each front n back of seat 2 enjoy the overhead moving sound like airplane flying over u. If only 1 pair u can’t really hear the motion, only there’s something over u.

your 2k budget is for receiver only
so what is your budget for speakers???
So here is what I have found so far:
WHARFEDALE WH-S8E - $193.00
WHARFEDALE CRYSTAL 4 5.0 SYSTEM (BLACK) - $678.00
Marantz SR6013 GOLD 9.2 Channel 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver $1,199.00

Total: $2,076.09
To these I may add a couple of ceiling speakers for the Atmos (5.1.2) effect - at a later date. I need to pick up a couple of used ones I won.

Opinions? Advice?

Don't doubt yourself. I haven't bought the system yet anyways, since I'm only getting keys in about a month, and no room to store the items for now.
I was considering X3600 as well, since it provides a great bang for buck (some says better than Marantz, and definitely a newer model).
I pick the Marantz since it seems to be somewhat more reliable than Denon. Yes, I know they're under the same parent company.
And that it could just be a matter of luck.
I still have a month to consider. But I think this setup should work well.

Thanks for the heads-up, but..
  1. The model of the receiver I'm planning to get is not on that list (mostly old models)
  2. I doubt I'll use that service.

I really enjoyed this system using a Mcintosh processor with a MC 205 power amp and some Dynaudio Temptation speakers.

Most of us dunno how to calculate actual requirements but the 10inch or 12 inch minimum is a pretty common belief.

Yep
The room size doesn't not determine what woofer size to us. That's false..
A smaller woofer doesn't go so deep or needs more power to do so..

Smaller cabinets help the sub to blend into a smaller space.

But when you've made up your mind on what you need or feel you need, you won't accept any advice to the contrary.

However it's important to dispel any myths.. cheers
