From monitoring recent changes and spotting a comment by raygendreau, I would have to add the Sony STR-DG720 to this list, even though it comes in at $300. This would be a potential upgrade to the Yamaha HTR-6130 I suggested earlier. By paying $70 - $100 more you upgrade to a 7.1 receiver that is capable of decoding LPCM from Blu-ray players like the PS3. No other company currently has a receiver at this price point that can do that.
Just an after-thought..
