Question Looking for help finding the right receiver

OK, I have searched and searched and can't really seem to find what I want. So I am reaching out to see if I can actually find what I want.

I am setting up some outdoor speakers and need a decent receiver to run them. I also want to run a 2nd set of bookshelf speakers for my living room.

I am looking for something as follows

- Really want to have -
Android App control
USB (ability to play MP3 files)
ability to choose speakers A or B (for inside/outside)
Bluetooth connectivity (for streaming from phone/tablet) or I guess able to connect via USB

- Would be AWESOME to have -
Ability to stream directly from Google Play
Networking ability

As for price, I'm looking for something in the sub $500 range, but I understand that as I add on these options, I'll most likely end up with more receiver than I actually need, so is there something I can do to go with a lesser optioned up receiver, but add other components onto it and get what I want?
