The Emotiva UMC-200/UPA-700 is a really good deal at $800 but the UMC-200 has no video processing and still has teething problems. I'd actually go with the Onkyo NR818 plus Emotiva XPA-5 but it is going to cost more. That all depends on whether you want a more mainstream room correction package and have a lot of DVD's that need upconversion to 1080p. Emotiva's mindset with the entry-level UMC-200 is to just let something like an Oppo BDP-103/105 handle the video processing.
