Went with the NXG sub and Denon AVR-E300 (with airplay).
Still deciding between the HSU and Ascend 3.1 speakers. Biggest problem is both are too wide for my spot (or long, depending on what you consider long/wide). They are 23" and 21", respectively, whereas my cabinet is only 18.5". Would be nice to fit the center speaker into it but guess I can put it on top, right in front of the TV if necessary.
All the replies have been immensely helpful, will be a great set up for sure!!
EDIT: HSU bookshelves and center speakers ordered!
