^^
The SR7009 can provide 125W into 2CH and likely closer to 90W/CH when driving 5 or 7 speakers. You won't likely need the Rotel unless you want to expand to 11CH or externally power Zones 2 or 3.

By "rear" I take it you mean "Side Surround" as you also indicate you have "Surround Back" speakers as well. If you can add a set of floor "side surrounds" placed on stands or mounted into the wall,...

Although slightly above your budget, last year's Denon X3000 can output HDMI audio to Zone 2 independent from what is playing in the main zone.

These are just now becoming available, however, based on the poor results from the comparable Def Tech A60 up-firing modules, I would not expect much from these either. If at all possible, high wall...

The 4311CI can only play what it receives. This is likely a Netflix setting issue so ensure Netflix is set to 5.1 and not stereo.

Reference level in the home cinema is also 85db. The mfr's use a 75db test tone simply because 85db would be too loud for the majority of home owners. :)
