There is a deal I would highly recommend to you, but it is TODAY ONLY!!! (and online only)
The KEF iQ90 speakers, which were $1500 per pair, are on sale TODAY ONLY at the KEF DIRECT website for $660 per pair. They are WORTH $1500 per pair....
These are about 1000% better than the speakers you mentioned, especially for music. Comparing these to those other speakers is about like comparing a BMW 5-series to a Ford Fiesta...lol.
The KEF C6LCR center speaker sells for $269 and will match them very nicely.
The Denon receiver will work very nicely with them.
I wouldn't want to miss out on this deal if I were in your position; it is a chance to get some VERY fine speakers at a superb price.
These speakers have a rated sensitivity of 91 db per watt at 1 meter; this is very good.
I had a set of iQ9 speakers in one system at my old house, before I sold it, for several years, and they were excellent. The iQ90 is very similar; slight improvements. I ran them with a 50-watt NAD amplifier, by the way, and that was way more power than required.
The thing you want to avoid with that receiver are speakers with a sensitivity of 88 db per watt or lower; that would be a BAD match for your receiver!
