I think that the LSR305s may be good, but maybe it's a little pointless to mate powered speakers to an AVR.
I wouldn't say anything about the B6s, one way or another, because I have no experience with them.
My LR fronts are a pair of Hsu Research HB-1s. (The original model, with a tweeter that probably isn't as good as the current Mk2.) I like them. A lot of people here like Hsu subwoofers even more. Hsu has a few drawbacks: they are Internet direct only, so you can't audition their stuff in a brick and mortar store. (Unless you can visit them in Anaheim, CA.) Their shipping charges aren't low. They have a 30 day return period, but no free return shipping.
There must be dozens of good bookshelf speaker choices. I've read a lot of suggestions about Cantons at accessories4less, but I'm not sure what models are regarded the highest. There are also Chane fans here, but some of their models seem to be unavailable at the moment.
