Default ATC & Bryston HT/HC - What speaker & amp config?


I currently have a pair of ATC SCM19s. I'm thinking of getting a pair of ATC SCM40s for Fronts, using my ATC SCM19s for Rears, and getting a pair of ATC SCM11s for backs and then an ATC C3 Centre and C4 Sub to round off a 7.1 system. Would this work or should I really be getting SCM19s for the back or the same speakers (i.e. SCM19s) all round?

I'm thinking of getting a Bryston 6B-SST2 to use with the SCM40s and C3C, a 3B-SST2 for the SCM19s and 2B-SST2 for the SCM11s. Could I get away with the 9B-SST2 for the centre, rears and backs and, say, a 3B-SST2 for the fronts or something? Depending on recommendations on speaker configuration how should these amps be?

I'm also completely open to alternatives on the amps (I am set on the ATC speakers though, particularly as I already have a pair) although the 20 year warranty on the Bryston appeals to me and I can (at least in my mind) pay it off over twenty years (I'm going to roll the cost of the system into my mortgage on a new house). Also note that I'm in Australia and am quite inclined to import everything as the market down under is a dead set rip off!

Thanks in advance,
