Advice on first home theater setup

General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms - www.avsforum.com
Hello, here is a setup I have in mind for my first home theater, was hoping people could give their opinions/advice/guidance on what I've selected. I've already purchased the receiver and speakers. Will be viewing 80% films to 20% TV

Viewing area dimensions:

-15 ft (depth) x 11.5 ft (length) x 12 ft (height)

-projector will be ceiling mounted, and throw distance is 14 ft

-screen will be on the 11.5 ft wide wall side

-screen will be 2.39:1 aspect ratio, diagonal size of 116" (max width of 108" and height of 45"; 16:9 image will be 92" diagonal, keeping constant height at 45")

Equipment:

-Marantz SR6011 9.2ch receiver

-Pioneer Andrew Jones 5.1.2 speakers and 12AWG speaker wire (plan to upgrade to 5.1.4)

-Optoma UHD60 (manual zoom of 1.6x and vertical lens shift should allow me to achieve 2.39:1 image at 14 ft, according to projector central calculator)

-Vorke Android box (for now) that can output 4K HDR (tested this); plan to upgrade to a custom built HTPC

-Carl's ALR 116" diagonal 2.39:1 screen (will be doing some viewing in ambient light, mainly TV)

-HDMI 2.0 cable interconnects to receiver and projector to allow for full 4K
