Default Almost there but I need a bit more help

Thanks to those helping me make a decision on speakers. I'm starting almost from scratch in a 13' w x 15' d room with a 10' window right behind the seating, so I'm going with a 52" matte screen, probably Sony or LG. Front, rear and center speakers are taken care of for the time being, but I need a new receiver and a subwoofer.

Want to spend about $200 for the sub and I'm open to suggestions. The Speaker Company has 20% off on what appears to be a decent 10".

The receiver is the big question, as technology is moving quickly yet there are some great deals on refurbished stuff from a year or two ago. with no more than 12" behind the back seating I don't need 7.1 but that's what most receivers are nowadays. If that's the way I go, I'll just wire it for 5.1.

I can buy a Marantz Sr6001 refurbished for $365 delivered and it originally sold for around $1K! The Harman Kardon AVR 345 is also a refurb with a warranty in the same price range, as is the current model Onkyo HT-RC160.

Too much research is giving me brain freeze so please help me out choosing current technology with a lower discount and power or something a year or two old?

Also, do I really need Blu-Ray right now? My 2 year-old DVD works just fine.
