Figure out your budget, what you want in a receiver, what kind of speakers you want to fit your space, bass wants and then come ask us. All the mainstream receivers have good options. Speakers are easy to come by for any budget, though you'll get a lot more if you spend at least a few hundred dollars, better yet at least a grand. Personally, I recommend starting out with a 3.0 setup to get started, or better yet 3.1 if the budget allows. Upgrading to .2 or more and getting surrounds are very easy to integrate into any system, low end all the way to no holds barred budget.
