I have the R90's F/R/Surrounds, the R180 center and the R720 sub. I love them. They are clearly the best sounding small speakers I have heard. Good thing you stepped up to the 270's for most of your speakers, as your room would be a little to big for the 90's or even the 180's.
I do have two suggestions for your set-up though. See about replacing the 180 center with another 270. The center speaker is responsible for over 70% of the sound in a movie and they tend to be pushed the hardest in a soundtrack. Having that smaller 180 as your center could be a weak link. But the proof is in the listening and if you don't crank your system, the 180 may be fine.
My only other concern is the 360 sub. It really isn't a true sub as much as a mid-bass speaker. You would be better off with the 720 or the RSW12 from the Silver series. Both of these will have more low end power than that little 360.
But again, judge for yourself. You may find the system meets all of your expectations as is. Just sharing my experience with these speakers.
