There are tons of them out there. Any limiting budget or the sky is the limit? 2-channel music? FYI only, Yamaha recently released RX-V1400 for MSRP $800, which can be found for substantially less. It meets most of your requirements-- THX, Digitial Dolby IIx, 7.1 channel, work as pre/proc with external amp, and many more. It can do video up conversion, which is a nice feature for wife and kids since they don't have to switch inputs on TV. It does NOT have dual ports for dual subs, but many folks have used Y splitter. Not sure if you like such idea. I use RX-V1400 as an example under the assumption that you want some thing in such price range. Some will say don't spend the extra $ for THX. Some will say Denon is better than Yammie in such price range. It's all about personal preference. Good luck.
