Yamaha - RXV681 or other choices

Hello,
This forum has been very helpful for AVS newbies and really appreciate all the thoughts and guidance.

We bought a 65 inch Samsung KS8000 last night and Best Buy is going to come and hang it on the wall in a couple of weeks. We bought a new home few months back and this TV is going to be in the basement - the area is pretty wide and large. We got all the pre-wiring done for a 7.1 in-ceiling speaker system.

So, this is what I am thinking -
1. I will get a Yamaha RX-V681 model receiver - it is about $600. Is there a better option around that price point that goes well with the Samsung TV. Of course, need the 4K Ultra passthrough and all that jazz
2. Do I need an additional subwoofer?
3. I have a sound-bar currently but I will probably get the in-ceiling speakers - Speakercraft CRS6 or AIM? Anything else I should consider.

Appreciate the thoughts.

EDIT - Denon S920W seems to be a comparable product.
