Hey Guys,

I am moving into a new house that has 4 ceiling speakers pre-installed.

I am new to AV set up so I was curious what the best home theater set up would be in utilizing these: Soundbar? 1.1.4? DTS? Dolby Atoms, Etc. Just ideas on equipment.

Devices that will be connected to this set up is a vinyl record player, Xbox One X, & LG OLED CX.

Thank you so much :).

These speakers are all in one room and not distributed around the house ?

You are going to have to take one down and get more technical info about it. The best thing is to find a center channel speaker from the same manufacturer that is designed to be used as a set. That way the timbre of a sound won't change as it moves among the speakers.
You will want a dedicated subwoofer. The ceiling speakers probably don't have a lot of bass. You need a good dedicated sub to compensate. Again, if the same manufacturer has a sub, look at that first.
The other reason you need to get technical info is to find out the impedance (ohms) of the speakers. That needs to be verified against the amp (receiver) you purchase.

Most of the terms you referenced "DTS" "Dolby Atmos" etc are associated with the surround sound decoder (AV receiver). Totally independent of the speakers.
