Epson 5050 and a blank slate

We're finishing our basement. I've been so focused on speaker layout, where walls go, where outlets go, I realized that drywall goes up next week, and I'm finally at the point of "Shoot, I need to find a receiver!"

Now, I have owned receivers in the past but have never had more than a 2.0. I'm building from scratch here.

I'll have:
  • Epson 5050
  • 5.2.4 with no plans to ever go to 7.x.x
  • 133" 16:9
  • Xbox One
  • Apple TV or Shield or both
  • BR player of some sort - need to research this too!
  • Second zone with TV
  • Cheap turntable but music is not high priority

Important to me:
  • IMAX Enhanced
  • Dolby Atmos
  • Audyssey or similar
  • I would like to duplicate Zone 1 to Zone 2 TV so folks can watch a game on the projector screen or on the other side of the room by a game table. Not sure if this is even possible

Receivers on my list for now:
  • Denon X3600H
  • Denon X4500H
  • Denon X6500H
  • Marantz SR7013

Should I consider other receivers? Is the Marantz worth the price difference? How do I go about researching further?

I posted an answer over in the 5050 thread. Here is a link to a receiver I think would support your configurations.
