Only four speaker systems make the cut IMO for reference class home theater: JBL Synthesis, Pro Audio Technology, Procella (all of which use compression drivers and waveguides) and Wisdom Audio (line sources).
You MUST have identical LCR speakers! Putting the speakers in wall IMO makes the the room acoustics easier to manage and it also looks much better to boot.
And remember, the room layout, acoustic design, acoustic treatment and final calibration is probably 50% of your end sound quality so make sure you research those areas and seek professional help where appropriate.
