I know almost nothing about the $500 price point. Maybe this will at least start some people arguing... In my opinion, I would guess that:
a) There is not a lot of difference among them if you do some searching and identify $500 - $600 units from Denon, H-K, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sony, Yamaha, etc. -- pick the one with the features you want.
b) You may have trouble finding any AVR that will power that many zones.
