Hi,

I am in need of a receiver to power my Martin Logan MLT2 5.1 setup. I will be primarily playing content through my PC, mostly music and movies. I want to get the best receiver under $400. I don't know much about AV equipment, but I am considering:

Onkyo TX-NR616 (bummed that its an onkyo, but it was quite a few inputs and two outputs, which will be nice since i will be connecting a computer screen and a tv)
Pioneer Elite VSX-60 (this was on clearance sale at a local store, and the rep was touting how great this is)

Sound quality, when playing both music and movies is my highest priority.
I need to have network capabilities. Airplay would be nice.
Two hdmi outputs would be nice, but not a deal breaker. I realize this is not a feature widely available on sub $400 receivers.

Any recommendations?

if you want dual HDMI outputs you'll have to spend a little more money. Denon 2313 can be had for $479.

If you're willing to forego the dual HDMI then the Yamaha rx-v673, denon 1913 and several other receivers are available at $399 or less.
