With your mismatched fronts and center, I would suggest focusing on a matched L/C/R array first . You want the front three, especially, to be sonically matched (though, you should have surrounds that are from the same line as well). This is a big weak point in your system.
Do you like your B&W 684's or are you thinking of upgrading and getting something different? The HTM61 is the matching center, if you do still like them. The on wall DS3 is the matching surround speaker model. You can switch from monopole to dipole with a flip of the toggle. I would rather run them as monopoles.
How large is your room? Is it open to other areas? This will address subwoofers and other concerns too.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
