The Outlaw receiver features analog bass management and a USB DAC ($650). The 3490 also features an onboard DAC but has no bass management ($317 at Amazon). I believe the Denon 697CI also has a high pass filter ($250 at accessories4less.com). I would be inclined to go for the receiver with bass management. You can always add a cheap DAC later. Or, you could just get an AVR. An AVR includes DACs and bass management.
