Since music is more important to you, I would take a different approach on the poweramp. For speakers other than the 2 fronts, use some high value, but powerful amps. I recently tried a QSC pro audio power amp, and while it didn't sound good enough to use in a high end audio system, it was more than adequate for theatre applications. I think the Price was somewhere between $300-$400. Then take the rest of the money and buy the best 2 channel amp you can afford. You'll get much better sound for the money that way.
