AV Receiver Suggestions??

I am looking for a new receiver to couple with my Emotiva XPA-5 Gen2 Amp. I will be a running 5.2.2 speaker set-up. The only speakers that will be powered by the receiver will be the 2 height speakers. My budget is $2k max. If it is not necessary to spend the entire $2k then I an good with that. I would like to have a quality unit that provides adequate voltage from the pre-outs to the amp as well as with the latest processing capabilities, Bluetooth, etc. I will not be running dual zones or anything like that. I have not researched receivers that much yet so I was hoping you folks could get me pointed in the right direction. Thank you!

Go to Accessories 4 Less and check out their deals on the Onkyo RZ830, Dennon 4400H or Marantz 6012. Any of the three should meet your needs.

@DennisBoone

7 channels with full preouts
Denon x3400/x3500 - excellent room correction, full preouts and phono on x3500 (finally)
Yammy rx-a860/a1060, a870/a1070, a880/a1080 - excellent quality, similar to x3500

9 channels with full preouts
rz830 - budget leader, good power and can expand to 11 channels (maybe you will one day)
x4400 - excellent HT receiver with xt32 which has dual sub control
sr6012 - cousin to x4400 with less power, but still has xt32, 9 channels and can expand to 11
NAD 758 v3 - highest priced here but most power, best room correction with dirac live

Marantz 6013 or Denon X4400/4500. These can be had well within budget at A4L. The X4400/4500 and Marantz can process up to 11 channels in case you want to expand to 5.1.4. The X3400/3500 is limited to 7 channels so keep that in mind when shopping.

Kef LS50,Q200C, Q100, SVS SB-2000, Denon AVR-X3400H, NAD 216, Panasonic 50" Plasma, Xbox One.
Bedroom: JBL Loft 50 , Loft 20, Bic F-12, Denon AVR-S710W, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.

Thanks for the suggestions. I found a great deal and pulled the trigger on the Marantz SR6013. Hopefully it will be a good decision. Cheers!!

How is the Marantz working out for you? I'm trying to make the same decision as you did.
