What upgrades are you planning in 2016

I just got over the upgrade bug and finished the year off with a 60" LG 4K UF7700 New Klipsch fronts and center plus Sub and Yamaha Receiver. I am currently looking at new entertainment shelves as mine is a little long in the tooth for recent upgrades. Curious to see what others are planning to upgrade or update.

My stuff: LG 60" 4K -Yamaha RX-A3040-Panasonic BD91- Klipsch Ref series front, top, and center. Fluance AVBP2 and Panasonic Titanium Titans bring up the surrounds and rear. Klipsch 12 inch ref subwoofer.

Re: What upgrades are you planning in 2016

Current setup:

Panasonic p65st50
Marantz 5007
Focal 807v fronts
Focal 800v center
Niles mp5 surrounds
Sunfire hrs 12 sub x2
Oppo 103
PS4
DirecTV genie

I am looking to upgrade, I just don't know what or where to start really.

I could use a little more power for the fronts, though they are only bookshelves. The Focal's sound great with the sunfire's for low end.

The Niles mp5's are ok. They are mounted in wall, about a high on the wall, behind my sitting area. I'm limited by the available space in my walls for upgrades.

A new AVR seems like a good place to start. The 5007 is nice, but a newer version of Audyssey would be helpful (room shape has challenges).

The OPPO is incredible, though I got mine just prior to the darbee edition version.

...I'm going to do something, I just don't know where to prioritize my resources. I do the best I can to get the most bang for my buck.

No upgrading... just adding.

Second subwoofer... more acoustics. I'll make a dramatic improvement with both of these to my system.

I'll probably go Atmos so I'll need addition speakers and I am thinking about getting an Athem AVM60 and a new amp.

That's why he said "not planning"

Funny thing that upgrade bug. I wanted to go Atmos so I started with the Yamaha and Atmos speakers thinking that was that. Boy was I wrong....lol.
