That’s quite a first post! Welcome and congrats on a MAJOR purchase.

Good setup and good quality cutters are the key to the performance of cutting tools. Stock blades are notoriously poor…buy good blades and bits, and take your time setting up the critical tools. You’ve made some nice choices IMO, including your dado set. If you haven’t seen it, check out Grizzly’s free shop layout tool.

Any plans to buy a router or two? It’s the most versatile tool you can buy for a wood shop. How about a planer to compliment the capabilities of your jointer and TS?
