Atmos Advice - New System

Hi, I am planning on buying a LG 55'' C9 OLED TV (https://www.lg.com/nz/tvs/lg-OLED55C9PVA) after Christmas and want to get a Dolby Atmos surround setup with it. I am currently looking at getting this https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/AUDOKY09800/Onkyo-HT-S9800THX-71-Channel-Network-AV-Receiver but don't know if there could be something better as I am only somewhat experienced with home theater stuff.


My current budget for the audio system is $2000 NZD but I am slightly flexible depending on the system. Is the above one a good choice or is there something similar I can get that is better? I can only buy from NZ based stores such as https://harveynorman.co.nz/, https://jbhifi.co.nz/, https://pbtech.co.nz/ etc...


Also if this isnt a great place to post asking for suggestions where would be? Just wanna get feedback and ideas to make sure that there isnt something better I could be doing ❤️ 
If the above is great then any tips you guys might have are super welcome too! I intend to ceiling mount two speakers in a 5.1.2 setup.

Pcpartpicker.com has a NZ database.  It’s filter stops at 5.1 so probably useless and you probably already knew this.  If nothing else it may save someone an unnecessary  internet trip.  This one sounds like it needs local NZ info and I don’t have any. :/

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

:I  Yeah, I'm not NZ base, so not sure how your market is over there.


Probably best place to ask is over on avsforum or other forums focus on sound and theater setups.
