Default Need information regarding a new HTS

I'm looking to upgrade to 7.1 surround sound pretty soon, but I really don't know too much about what to look for when buying. I have limited experience playing with various types of receivers and setups but for the most part, I don't know the fine details when looking for something to buy.

I have heard good things about Denon and Onkyo and was considering one of the two. I also am told that buying the receiver and speakers separate from each other is the better route to go as the all-in-one systems don't usually stand up well when compared to buying the pieces separate.

I have looked at a few receievers and speakers but I would really like to know what specifics I should be looking for, such as certain features on the receiver itself or speaker types, etc. Any help is appreciated.

If you could estimate a budget and how critical listener you are along with do you need/want full towers, bookshelf or micro-sized speakers.

I'm not sure the exact measurements of the room, but we're looking at probably about 20 feet by 12 feet or so. As far as the price, I'm looking to spend around $1000 but would be willing to dole out a little more if it's worth it. Speaker wise, I'm honestly not sure what the benefits of each of the speaker types you described is, so I couldn't really give you an accurate answer on that one.
