I'm setting up a new system from scratch and was wondering what speakers to match with the Onkyo 605 receiver that I've pretty much decided on. I really like what I've seen of the B&W 600 speakers. I've seen very good reviews of the 685s as stereo speakers, but can anybody tell me if they perform as well for movies in a 5.1 setup? I'd be thinking of a pair of 685s for the front and 686s for the rear, HTM62 for the centre and ASW608 for the sub.

This would be the top end of my budget, so I want to know that I'll get value for my money. Also will they work well with the Onkyo 605?

Thanks!
