    Nice setup! I used to have luxman receiver, perfect sound.
    I was in the exact same spot, I don't know what you're going to do with walls and parquet, but renovation implies dust and dirt. Floor sanding, walls painting (wallpaper replacement), etc. I don't thing this process is compatible with hi-fi/hi-end equipment
    By the way, I planned and prepared in advance all wires (in the cap of floor in their own pipes), power for the rack with separate switch, even aluminum coasters for speaker spikes. But I completely forgot about size of living room and echo. I had to use curtains and carpet to reduce echo. Wasn't all I expected, but that's life. Conclusion: if you plan to do something with walls, you can use acoustic panels or soundproof materials.

    Here is my setup in living room: marantz SR7000 receiver, marantz CD5400 ose, Touch, front: advance acoustic k11s, rear: audio pro black pearl v3, sub and center: audio pro cinema/image.

    Agree, your place looks great. At the risk of turning this into a home improvement forum, this remodel is part of taking an old layout (seperate rooms) and opening it up, so I'll be removing the old 3/8" wood and extending the kitchen flooring into this area, which is vinyl plank. I love real hardwood floors, but the planks are super durable, especially for the dog's toenails.

    Yes, the dust and dirt is a problem, I cover everything while working, but the covers are thin cloth to not trap heat and allow listening

    I did run the surround wires into boxes up high, and I also added dual voltage (2 - gang, AC and speaker wire/cables) behind each speaker, in the center, high and low with pull wires. The speakers have active subwoofers (i.e. need AC), and I added both high and low in the center, just in case I decide to change from a center equipment/display rack to mounting the display on the wall (hide power and cables behind the display).

    I shape your concern regarding all hard surfaces. I am hoping area rugs and curtains will help, but I could always add acoustic material on the back wall.

    Cheers:
    Jim
