Surround monitor setup

I need to purchase a versatile 5.1 surround setup for a museum with video rooms varying in size from 18m2 to 150m2. I'm looking at purchasing Genelec 8040s for L,R,C and 8030s for the LS/RS and a 7040APM sub. 

Firstly, does anybody have any comments on this setup? I've used it before and was very happy with the results.

Secondly, in purchasing a pre/amplifier, what would be recommended? It needs to be something that has an HDMI input and ideally have 8 pre-outs...

Thanks for your help.
