Any feedback from owners or ex-owners of Mission FS2-AV and KEF KHT2005.3 appreciated

I'm looking at upgrading my current Mission FS2-AV 5.1 system (and a Sony STR-DB940 receiver) as I've had them for around 8 years now and would like to get a receiver that supports HDMI and some of the newer audio formats. I'm thinking of changing the FS2-AV to something a little less obtrusive (they're grey / silver and my Pio KRP-500A is glossy black).

I've been looking at the KEF KHT2005.3 because they're reasonably priced, but also because they're small and glossy black too. Could anyone tell me whether they're wall mountable 'out of the box' or whether I would need to get brackets?

Also, apart from the FS2-AV, I've always avoided small speakers, especially satellite ones because whenever I've heard them in the past, they always seem to sound tinny and have no real power. I was really suprised when I got the FS2-AV originally that such small(ish) speakers could give such an amazing output which is why I've kept them so long - I'm not sure whether it's because they're NXT or not. Could anyone let me know whether the KEFs are comparable in sound quality, ie. can they really produce a strong and loud sound from such small speakers or should I be considering something else?

Finally, could anyone could recommend a good receiver to replace my Sony which will support the new audio formats on blu-ray and allow me to connect Sky HD, a PS3, an Xbox 360 and a DVD recorder using HDMI, (ie 4 inputs and 1 output)?

Thanks very much.
