I guess this is the shopping list your dealer gave you? Everything looks good except

Amplifier: Rotel RB-1590 <--- I would put budget for the power conditioner and cables into a different amplifier especially if you are doing surround in the future..
Power Conditioner: Furman IT-REFERENCE 20i <--- do you really need a power conditioner??
Cables: All Audioquest cables <--- how much is the cost for all the cables??

Justthinking the power conditioner is a really good deal off a friend who needs to part ways with it fairly quickly so it isn't needed, but also can't pass up on the deal.

As far as the Rotel RB-1590 I like these because of power they have and down the road when I do surround sound I will make sure to take care of powering the other speakers with another source.

As far as the cabling I will not be spending ridiculous amounts for such small variance in sound quality. Any you prefer though?

I have B&W 802 mains with a matching center channel and subwoofer. My surround channels are build into the wall and are B&W. I have no desire to defend or belittle B&W. I love music and use my system to listen to music followed by television and movies. I have a great collection of SACDs and of blu-ray music and after listening to many other speakers, can't find any that reproduce music as faithfully as B&W. Folks, that's it for me. Good night.
