Which receiver should I get for the bedroom?

Hi, I'm looking for some advice. I'm currently trying to get my bedroom speakers setup and need some help to find the right receiver. Here's my list of current components:

TV: Panasonic 42" 720P Plasma

DVD: Toshiba 720P HD-A2 HD-DVD Player

Cable: Time Warner Cable DVR w/ HD

Speakers: Klipsch Quintet III System

I got the Klipsch for $200 shipped, so I could not pass up that deal. Now my dilemma comes with should I splurge and get a $600-$700 receiver, or because I have satelite speakers just go with maybe a cheap $200-$300 receiver. One thing I need to put out there, is that the receiver has to be from Best Buy because my girlfriend works there and I get about 40% off on receivers.

I was looking at the Denon's but noticed that the cheaper ones (sub-$500) don't pass audio through via HDMI, only video. I would like to use all HDMI cables, so that is kind of a turnoff. So here's where I need some advice. I would like to pay around $200 for the receiver (after her 40% discount).. any suggestions?

That's what I think I'm leaning towards. The V661 seems to be getting some pretty good reviews.
