I suggest the Onkyo 709.
It has good power, a wide range of features, and it has preouts for all channels in case you ever want to add a power amplifier to the front channels for better sound quality.
Those speakers are very good; wise choice there.
You might want to consider just going with a 2-channel system and adding a subwoofer later.
In that case, I would recommend the Music Hall integrated amplifier, which is one of the best for under $1000. It will certainly sound better IMO than any HT receiver you can buy for under $1000, and it is available at Music Direct for only $499, which is a great deal.
It even has a phono preamp built in if you should want to connect a turntable in the future.
