I've got a dedicated theatre room in a new home construction and I am looking for some input on receivers. So far, I have Sonance LCRs and subwoofers making up 9.2 surround. My projector is the JVC DLA-RS65. I haven't decided on a screen, but have room for between 100-108". I also haven't decided on a receiver to power this beastly set up either.

Any recommendations are welcome! Cheers!

You may want to look at the Onkyo 5009. Lot of features for the money.

Either the Onkyo 3009 (has 99% of the functionality of the 5009 at 60-70% of the cost) or the Denon 4311 (as mentioned).

If you really want to spend Onkyo 5009 type of money, I would still do the 3009 and then power the front three LCR with an Emotiva XPA-3.

This later choice assumes that you are running the Sonance LCR Cinema Ultra 1 or 2 across the front three. If it is the non-Ultra Sonance LCR Cinemas, or any other Sonance inwall model, any decently powered higher end AVR will push them to very loud levels without a separate amp.
