Home cinema makeover....suggestions please...

Hello everyone !!!  We are currently planning on a little makeover in our living room.  New furnitures, new couch....and new home cinema !!!  Space is an issue and the speakers have to be white to match with the rest of the decor.  So with our budget of around $2000 US. or 1600 Euro, I'm considering the following:  B & W M-1 x 5, B & W ASW608, driven by an Onkyo TX-NR609.  Has anyone tried this combination?  The Onkyo 609 is rated at 100W per channel at 8 ohms, and the recommended power for the M-1 is 20-100W. Which means that it'll be driven at the max rating?  Will that be alright?  Haven't got a chance to demo the M-1 yet, as there are no B & W dealers around where we live.   This decision is only based on reviews here on WhatHiFi.com and a little research online.  Any input will be greatly appreciated !!!  Smile
