I have some old speakers in my basement for my workout area now that are running in stereo. Made me think something in the 893 size might be a nice upgrade at some point. Are you going to run surround sound or just in stereo in your living room setup? I don't have a sub output in this area. Is there a way to do the sub + 893 setup you're planning with an active plate amp or something?
