Here's what I need:

5.1
3 HDMI inputs
1 HDMI output
A couple SPDIF (optical) jacks
One RF jack
Two or three analog audio jacks (well, at least one)
Remote control
Ability to phantom center channel and put LFE onto the front speakers
Ability to balance levels of individual speakers
Preamp outputs for at least the front channels.

In fact, if it had NO amplification at all, I'd be completely fine with that too.

Oh yeah, like $350ish?

I don't want a billion setup options. No concert hall, no bluetooth, no streaming, I don't even care about an OSD.

Is there anything out there?

You can ignore the things you don't need.

You basically described a preamp, which requires separate amps. They don't quite get down to $350, though. $550 for the Outlaw, similar for the Emotiva. These are both pretty simple, although I don't know if they precisely match your list.

Sorry, the entry level units for each manufacturer are as simple as it gets.

Exactly.

RF jack? Please explain your purpose for that

Preouts?

$350?

Maybe a used preamp from a few years back.

You'll want OSD to setup your speakers

The Slimline Marantz has preouts for front channels but only one optical input, you want two.

Sorry, no PRE OUTS, for that you need the 777 (or 775 as I have), much more $. I believe this ticks all the other reqs.
