Balanced Speakers: AV and SACD Multi-channel - Advice?



Rather than buy new speakers I'm trying to put together 6 or 8 speakers for an optimal AV surround system *and* multichannel SACD music. I'd appreciate the views of those who have more experience in this area than I do.

2 x Front Speakers - KEF Q90
2 x Rear Speakers - KEF Q55
1 x Centre Speaker - KEF Q95C
2 x Rear Surrounds - KEF Q65S or KEF Q55
1 x Sub-Woofer - KEF 42B

Amp will probably be a Denon AVC-A1SR or one of it's cut down models (AVC-A11SR or 3802). Display is a Panasonic TH-42PW4. The DVD will be a Pioneer which does both SACD and DVD Audio as well as component out.

My original idea was to just settle for an all-in-one Sony DAV-S880. I'm still a little tempted, but I already have a pair of KEF Q90s and should be able to get hold of the others at a reasonable price. Whether the Denons are *really* worth the hefty price, well, others will know better than I.
