Thanks for the input SRTer. The Receiver + Amp combination seems to be a good fit, but depending on how much an amp will cost me, I might just go for the FXi A6 surround speakers. I'm leaning towards the Onkyo 709, as suggested by Teseract, since it looks like I can pick it up for under $600. It'll be my first set of HT speakers anyhow, best to leave room for (affordable) upgrades.
