Bruce328i,I never went with the Salon 2's, now running Wilson Sasha W/P's and the Center 2 with a Krell Evo 403 and thinking about going to the 600e mono's. Also added the Classe' SSP-800 and ARC 40th Anniversary preamp (still burning in now!) pre... 
TV only recommendation
At 19' viewing distance you need size more than anything, Sharps 70' LCD is a nice TV and can be had for $2500. FWIW the minimum recommended size for a 12' viewing distance is 70" so for 19' it would be closer to 100"Go big! 
Power: surge protector, conditioner, ups
I use the Pure Power and love it 
Best "pseudo" multi channel from 2 ch sources
The only one I like is Trifield on the Meridian processors. 
Classe's New CP-800 Pre-amp/DAC. Impressions?

You can add the HD621 switcher and it will work with the new codecs of Blu-ray as well..... 
Best computer program for Apple IMAC

Power regenerator/battery backup
Hands down the best one I've found is the PurePower APS.Check out their site and you will begin to see why, put one in your system and you will know why they have such a devout following. 
Marantz SR7005 OR Pioneer ELite SC-35
I have the SR7005 and ST8002, so I too am biased towards Marantz given these two options, but both are strong units. 
How can anyone afford this ?
You just start out one day and keep upgrading and the next thing you know you have a ton of money invested in it. I think very few people just start out with $100K systems, though I know some do.Most of us just keep feeding the hole so to speak an... 
Quality In Wall Speakers
I was going to say Wisodm as well, they do things you won't believe from in walls! 
Oh how I wish Class D amps ...
Heard the Dvialet @ CES, it's a hybrid Class A and CLass D amp, very cool and adaptable system and sounded really good, wickedly cool form factor as well!
