... throw in one more opinion ...

I've always thought B&W speakers sounded quite nice and my only complaint is that they are overpriced. On the other hand, they are a great speaker to buy used :)

Many KEF dealers will let you purchase a single R series bookshelf if you request it. You'll likely have to wait for them to special order it however.

+1 the Ascends. Good value.

Based on your 3rd criteria (wide imaging/dispersion) you might also consider the KEF Q100 LR with the Q200c center. ($800 for the trio at accessories4less.)

A pair of SVS SB1000 or PB1000 subs is only $1K. Very nice subs for the money.

A pair of the SB2000 is only $1400 - this is a very accurate and musical sub and an excellent match for the LS-50.

Some of the Samsung TV's can do 1080p at 120hz 4:4:4 (UHD is limited to 60hz 4:4:4).

I know a couple folks using the Samsung UN40JU7100 with good success.

Know several people using the Samsung 40" JU7100 - good reports so far. Handles 4:4:4 at both HD (120hz) and UHD (60hz). Also the HD upscaling is quite good (important if your GPU can't output UHD).

You're on the right track - for music you want a very accurate and tight/quick sub.
