After reading through your thread, you have a few requirements for the speakers.
I haven't heard Genelec in a while, but I remember them being direct.
Being that they are studio monitors, they will not gloss over any detriments in the sound. They are also not very friendly looking, and they are near-field monitors which make longer distance listening a concern.
You also have to consider that all speakers will require power outlets at each location.
I am not sure if you finalized on the receiver but if not, I would recommend either Marantz or Pioneer Elite.
Marantz has great build quality and a very good amplifier section.
Pioneer Elite has a new digital amp section so efficiency, power and very lo wheat are the benefit. Both units have all the requisite features that you listed before.
As for speakers, I don't know what looks you are going for, but if you want good looks and sound with floorstanding units as your mains, I would look at Dali and Triad.
I can vouche for Dali speakers being built in Denmark because I visited the factory. Triad speakers are made in USA and are fantastic speakers.
I know that Triad doesn't make a traditional floorstanding speaker but they do make matching pedestals for any of their in-room models. They also do veneers (and bookmatched to boot) also for any model. They have veneer samples online but they MAY send you a sample book if you ask. Another nice feature is that they match sound from various speaker types in their respective lines, ie, In the Bronze line, they make in-rooms, in-ceilings and wall mounts that sound very similar to each other so you can be assured that you will have consistent sound from any of the speakers in the room.
Here are some pics of the build quality of Triad speakers. http://www.avsforum.com/t/921427/triad-owners-thread/4890#post_23116440
I hope I didn't muddy you up too much.
fyi, look at the new Google Chromecast.
