I've pieced together my 5.1 over the last 15 years for my home theater. You never want to cheap out on the speakers because 15 years later the speakers/sub are still performing great. About every 10 years or so it's probably a good idea to replace the AVR because of improvements in technology. For example, I have a 12 year old Denon 2307 that works great but HDMI technology has moved forward and to get the most out of my system it would probably be good to replace it when I get a new projector.

With all of that said, this seems like a good combo that will last a long time. Probably the biggest question is whether you want to go Atmos. From the little research I've done, it wouldn't be worth it for me.

I agree with you on Atmos not being worth it for receiver upgrade. I have 4-5 years old sc1522k and it doesn't pass thru HDR or DV to my TV. Now I am back in the market for that, but I am gonna wait a while and make sure that my next receiver has HDMI 2.1 spec.

This, but substitute '15 years' with '2 years'.

I feel like you could piece together a better system for $2000. A hsu sub, mid range Denon avr and jbl studio 2xx line of speakers would be an upgrade on this.

$2000?

How about...
3 pairs of Kef Q100's for $750 (use 1 as a center, and sell the other for $100+).
2 SVS PB-1000 for $950 or less.
Whatever decent receiver is on sale for $300-$500.

This would destroy that other build in output/bass, and is using better speakers that are arguably better sound than those ELAC's. So many better options for $2000 IMO. You could even go with a better single sub from various companies. DIY will get you even better bang for the buck.

This isn't terrible, but you're paying a premium for including a marantz receiver. For the same price, you can get better speakers/subs, and that will affect the sound much, much more.

Yeah, I priced it out. Even if I loved the elacs and 5012, I could buy them individually and still swap out the Bic subs for a vtf-2 mk 5

I've heard the Elac Debut 2.0 F6.2 are really good and can get pretty loud with good clarity. For a bigger than average room would you still prefer the smaller kefs over the Elac Debut 2.0 F6.2 and why. I don't know too much I just go off of reviewers like zeos.
