yes.

you can pull 12 gauge from the box, replace the breaker, and make it a 20 amp circuit.

you won’t need to.

nope.

if your situation WAS a problem, avs (as well as other fora) would be LITTERED with posts from people blowing breakers. the vast majority of users don’t even have a dedicated circuit, there’s other stuff (like lights, etc.) on the same circuit as all their stuff.

i ran an avr (and all the associated input devices), a pj and a seaton submersive off of a 15 amp circuit. i really don’t think you are going to have problems.

just as an aside. if you are still in the construction phase, run an ethernet cable to both your avr and tv locations.

the basement is 99% finished so its too late to add cables, but I did put 4 ethernet cables running from the TV/AVR location to the other side where I keep my modem/router/switch. I also payed for a cheep ass conduit from the wall mounted TV to the bottom of the wall. I payed $200 for a narrow ribbed tube that probably costs $2 at a HW store. when the guy told me I should get this, I didn't bother asking what type of tube? how wide?, etc.
