I suggest that you consider the Wharfdale Diamond 10.1 speakers, which Music Direct has for only $349 per pair.
They are really excellent speakers. Putting as much money as possible into good speakers and amplifier is sound long-term strategy for satisfaction. If you can't afford them , Amazon has the Polk Monitor 40 speakers for only $120 per pair, which is quite a good deal.
You probably want to get a decent integrated amplifier, not a receiver.
For a good amplifier at a good price, I could sell you my NAD C325 amplifier, for only $225 plus shipping. It is like new and essentially the same as the C326 which sells new for $550. See the classified section here.
