I think you'll both be very happy with the Sierra 1's. I'd add a subwoofer for the low end though. A 12" Rythmik would fit the bill nicely and Ascend also carries them.

For use alone, I would do the 340's and add a third for a center channel. Best sound per dollar in Ascend's lineup, and easier to get loud with that Yamaha. For movies, definitely add a sub.

The Sierra-1 will also do the trick and look better, but cost you more.

Don't know much about the Tektons.

Overall, the Sierra-1 is a better speaker, not quite as forward sounding as the 340SE, has digs deeper, solid imaging, takes more power to hit the same volume level, and has better WAF.
