The VSX-42 has a single component input, and no component output, so why is that even a consideration with the "need" list as posted?
Your Rotel probably has a very nice amplifier section, so you will have a hard time matching that sound without a stellar find in the used market.
I would start searching for something with pre outs so you can eventually invest in an amplifier of similar quality to your Rotel, maybe a year or two old Marantz, or older Pioneer Elite would do in the mean time, but 3D and quantity of analog jacks will likely push you into the higher end models.
