Help me choose Receiver ~$300 please

I know very little about receivers. At first I was thinking about a soundbar, but after some suggestions I want to do a 5.1 setup of some sort. The primary uses will be for watching blu-rays via ps3 and Uverse TV. I also have Chromecast. I have an approximately 6 year old Samsung 55" TV. I want to spend about $300 for the receiver (total system budget of ~$1000). Bluetooth would be nice although not used all that often.

I will likely get a 4K TV in the next few years. The area is about 25x20--ceiling is about 11 feet tall. I got the idea from another forum to go with WaveCrest HVL-1 for LCR. I have no idea if those are good for the center. Not sure about which receiver to choose, which sub (although I have seen some good budget suggestions here--not sure if need bigger to fill my area), or the final 2 back speakers.

Please help--thanks much!

I haven't dug up the price yet but if you'll be mainly watched blurays, get an AVR that has DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD supported.
Also, for 4K, get the AVR that has HDMI 2.0.
