Hi everyone.

I´m new to these forums and would like to get some advice from you guys.

Here is my current setup.

Display
Pioneer PDP-435PE plasma screen
A/V receiver
Pioneer SVX-1015
Sub
Jamo E6 Sub
Speakers
5 x Pioneer L-LF3-CR 130W 8 ohm
Sources
Sky + HD Box
Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu ray (modified to play all regions)
DVICO M-4100SH Multimedia player



The room I have is about 14 X 10 feet. The ceiling height TV side is 12.4 feet backwall is 7.3. feet
Large wall is concrete and behind it is my garage, left side is concrete(neighbours living room on the other side), back wall is concrete(outside and right wall is wood with my living room on other side.

It is mostly used for watching TV and movies.

What I really need is some advice on what to start with on upgrading. My thought is the Receiver. Would be good to have two HDMI outputs for both displays.

I am located in Iceland and here we don´t have a lot of variety regarding equipment. I plan on getting most of my stuff through Amazon.com and have it sent to a few pilot friends in the US and they will bring it to me when ever possible. The prices here are insane, at least double and sometimes even more.

I am in the position that everything I would need to buy would be unseen(projector) and unheard(speakers) because I can not check out a lot of the items I am thinking about so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My budget for a receiver would be around 1000-1200 USD. Been looking at the Pioneer Elite SC-65 but open to suggestions.

I am new to projectors and I can not check them out here. I´m thinking of a budget of around 2000 USD for PJ and electric screen(3D not neccesary but would be good for further updates) so I can easily choose between TV and PJ. The room is nearly blacked out when the curtains are pulled so that would not a problem.

As for speakers I´ve been looking at some Klipsh, here are some of them and I have also been checking out Emotiva´s range of speakers.

I have been doing a little work in Google sketchup.
