Max Budget: ~$2,500
Speakers: 5.1 Martin Logan Motion Series (2x40, 1x30, 2x15, 1xSub)
It is ok for it to be 7.1 or 9.1 etc. I know I won't have a use for the extra channels at the moment, but that could change.

Should have:
- Video pass through (will connect my HTPC thru HDMI and serve most content through it)
- Should be able to access NAS and stream audio (wired network)
- Plenty of video inputs
- HDMI 1.4 with ARC support
- 3D support

Nice to have:
- Video streaming (netflix, amazon, youtube, etc)
- Internet radio (pandora, spotify, etc)
- HD radio

I would look at Pioneer SC-77/79 , Denon 4520ci and Yahmaha 3030 some features will be different amongst the three but doubt you will be disappointed with what ever choice you make.
You are going to get recommendations based on everyones preference which may not be yours but I would give those a demo.
Beyond that I would look at separates a good combo would be Marantz 8801 and I like Parasound Halo series amps but that would probably more than double your budget.

The Denons and Yamahas are available from AVS - jdsmoothie or Craig or Mike at very competitive prices and with full factory warrantee.
The Pioneer Elites are not authorized for Internet sales and must be purchased from an actual store.

Visit both forums and read and ask questions then try and demo the units.
