since your boy wants to add video, and you already have a good 5.0 speaker setup, i'd look at getting an avr intially, with the view to adding separate amps later and using the avr as a pre/pro. he's also gonna want a sub. as for a used avr in your price range, you're defintiely on the right track with the arcam and rotel; i'd also look at b&k 305/307/507; very well built and much better than the mass market fare. i personally don't recommend nad because of reliability, altho i'm sure their stuff sounds good.
