    With all respect…..
    ….I do not see the sense in dedicating a set of 50’s to music only.
    The 50’s were build to do both music and video – they have the input and configuration options for both.

    May seem a bit radical, but I would move the 50’s to right/left of the Avant, connect them there via PL and let them be fronts.

    If you install the NL/ML Converter in the setup (and integrate the BS9000 with the Avant), you can have easy access to the CD player and the turntable – you can have a dedicated Listening Group with the 50’s for that.
    Also you can listen to it from elsewhere in the house as well.

    Note! If you do not want the tv to be active for the 9000, you can keep your  current 9000/Core combination with line connection directly to the 50’s.

    The other inputs on the 50’s can be used as of now – actually you’d only need the USB /Nucleus….or alternatively the BC Core.

    As I understand it, you – in your case – would have to free up the PL currently used for the 17’s.
    But they would do a much better job as surround speakers (on either side of the sofa facing the tv) and they can easily be connected via WiSA.
    The 18’s in the back should then – if not already – be configured as rears.

    A classical 7.1 setup so to say, but with the unique B&O option of using the 50’s directly for just music listening.

    This would give you an improved listening experience for movies, for music concerts and for multichannel music (from Apple Music/Tidal on e.g. ATV4K or from Blu-ray discs) and it would not compromise the music listening standarts, you aim for.
