You aren't putting the front three in the ceiling are you? Unless you plan on laying 2 feet in front of the TV to hear the front channel coming down...

Don't see anything wrong with the set-up...as long as you can correctly place the speakers. Assuming here the plasma will be wall mounted with the speaker directly underneath... The only change I'd make...the 200QL all around...why not match(yeah, I know it is another $300-ish)?

I had wondered about going for the Klipsch R5 In Wall System instead of the Kef to save some money. I would like to listen to music too now and then thats what the Kef was recommended to me for. This stuff is adding up fast.

Spend the bulk of your money on the speakers. Next go-round of "upgrades"...you won't be spending on speakers anyway. Buy 'em right the first time. Klipsch vs KEF is a personal choice. If you need help, buy a pair of bookshelves from both(open box deals of KEF and Klipsch can be found on Amazon) and return them... You won't feel so bad buying open-box to return them...and you'll have a better idea of how you like either one...without having to guess. It is one thing to buy "normal" speakers and decide you want to change them up in a year or two. Quite another when they are stuck in your wall...

Well today started to wire network and speakers. I decided to go with the Kef in wall and ceiling speakers. the install looks like its going to be a snap. The wire part sucks. I could use some advice for a power conditioner. Id like to keep it under 200 bucks if that is possible.
