So what do you think of the setup I am looking into?

    I am getting ready to build my first home theater setup. I am not looking to spend the same money recording studios use, just something better than an out of the box system.
    So this is what I came up with. Any thoughts or suggestions???
    Here is what I am going to start with:
    Yamaha Rx-V673 7.1 for the receiver
    then 2 B&W 684B for the fronts
    Then a few months down the road:
    B&W center channel speaker CMCCGB
    Definitive Technology super cube sub, or something else
    And about a year down the road
    B&W bookshelf speakers for the rear 686B
    I have not pulled the trigger yet, still in the research phase.

    The only thing I'd do is compare the RX-A720 as well. Yes, they overlap, but the A does some things better...while losing a feature or two you might want...which getting the 820 would somewhat give you back.
    As far as that goes...so far the RX-A are holding their "used" values better in case you decide to upgrade later.

    Love the B&W. Make sure you listen to them for some time with some of your own movies and music before you make the final decision.

    Take a look at SVS for the sub - don't over spend on the speakers and neglect the sub. It is very important part of the system.
