Need to keep things small or in-ceiling, and preferably white in color or walnut. In-walls are not an option for front/center, as windows & fireplace do not allow.

Budget is somewhat flexible, but I would consider option A) the limit.

A) PSB Imagine Mini L/R and Imagine Mini Center, DefTech UIW RSS III Surround (in-ceiling)
B) DefTech ProMonitor 800 L/R, ProCenter1000 and UIW RSS III Surround
C) PSB L/R/C as in A, and one of the PSB in-ceiling options for surround.

I'm assuming there is some small benefit to matching the surround speakers to the L/C/R make, but am concerned that PSB does not offer an enclosed in-ceiling speaker (or one in the imagine line). Leaning toward A) for that reason. I'll consider the sub once I've settled on the others (will not be able to play at reference levels anyway). Primarily for HT use, with some casual music listening (mostly as background while doing other tasks). Opinions on the above options are appreciated, as well as other small bookshelf (<12" height) and in-ceiling options. Listening area is ~14widex15longx10ft high, but another 15ft behind listening area (kitchen). I know all these options are undersized for the room, but reference levels are not necessary, and all listening will be at modest volume.
Thanks in advance.

I wonder what he'd think about 3D IMAX?
