HT Receiver suggestions

Hello,

I apologise if this is a very open ended question however, the market is so saturated it's difficult to find all choices.

I am currently in the process of trying to move from a 2 channel L/R setup with monitor audio speakers and a Yamaha A/S501 amp to a 5.1 setup initially.

I'd like to build up a Klipsch Reference Premier setup eventually, however I'll be buying speakers as and when I can afford them until I have everything I'd like.

I guess I would be looking at originally setting up with a receiver that supports the following:

Probably at at least 100w per channel (Going by the requirement of the klipsch reference premier series speakers)
minimum HDCP 2.2
minimum HDMI 2.0a
minimum HDR10
maybe dolby vision?
airplay doesn't exactly concern me, it'd only be a benefit
HDMI input/output on every channel at 4k/60hz/4:4:4 at a minimum
Must be compatible with logitech harmony as this is the control mechanism I use for my living room.

If it fits in the budget I'd like to be able to achieve up to 5.1.4 with whatever receiver you lot suggest.

Budget maximum 800 GBP/1000 USD, less would be nice though.

I am perfectly happy to go second hand as long as the receiver is from a reputable manufacturer that will support/repair equipment that isn't brand new.

@g00sey Not sure if you are in the UK or not, but here in the states there are a lot of options that can meet your needs under $1k USD. So I will name a few from each manufacturer and hopefully you have access to one or all of them where you are.

Pioneer - vsx-lx303/304/lx503/504

Onkyo - tx-rz630/730/740/830/840

Denon - x3600 (top of $$ US budget)

Marantz - sr6012/6013 (top of $ US budget)

Yamaha - rx-a2070 (top of $$ US budget) and rx-v2085 (often on sale under $800)

I do live in the UK, but most models seem to be equal globally these days.

Thanks for the suggestions I might consider going for the Marantz SR6012, they do make the sexist looking receivers and it has all the features I am looking for and some of the bonus ones that I didn't mind whether or not they were included.

Just thought I'd also mention that the 6012 is really well priced in the UK at the moment :-)

@g00sey yea good choice. xt32 is excellent and can calibrate dual subs semi-independently (unlike most of those other choices). It has hdam which is supposed to producer cleaner fidelity (jury is still out) with 7.1 multi-channel inputs and it can expand to 11 channels with ext. 2 channel amp, iirc?

only downside, it has a small porthole viewing window for input, dsp, etc. Not sure if it has input overlay on the tv, well need the king of DM to chime in @jdsmoothie
