I suggest that you get the Harman-Kardon HK3700 stereo receiver, for $350.

It has good power, network connectivity, and can be controlled by an iphone or android phone using the HK app.

I suggest that you look at the ELAC Debut B4 speakers.

If those are too large, look at the Dayton Audio B452 speakers; these are good-sounding, compact, and inexpensive.
