What is the best A/V reciever you would get for under $800 used with the following equipment...?

Cable box - Comcast HD
Samsung bluRay DVD
Apple TV
Either a PS4 or XBox1 when they come out
Samsung plasma 55" tv
Boston Acoustic THX speakers 5.1
Logitec Harmony Touch remote

I have always gone with Denon, but am open to other brands as well.

Marantz has just released their new model receivers. Therefore, the old models can currently be had for closeout prices. A brand new Marantz SR 5007 with 100 watts x 7 is currently available for $599. This is a really good price on a very nice "entry level " receiver. Also the Marantz SR 6007, which has a little more power, is currently available on Amazon as well for $899. I had a SR 5002 in my system for five years. It was a great receiver, which never gave me one ounce of problems. Also, the HDMI switching was flawless as well. The prices on these two models relect a $300 decrease, due to them being new "old" stock. Amazon has a totally hassle free return policy. The 5007 will probably be more than adequate for your speakers. However, that depends on the sensitivity of your speakers, as well as the size of your listening room. And most importantly, how loud you listen.
