You might take a look at the Arcam AVP700. It's in your price range, and has HDMI switching and its audio side is absed on the higly acclaimed AVR300 receiver.

Thanks for the advise. In fact, I just brought an AVP700. I am thinking to do the bi-amping. Did anyone know if I can use the zone 2 output to connect an additional power amplifier and bi-amp the front L & R channels?
I understand ARCAM suggests to use channel 6 & 7 to bi-amp the front L & R but I want to keep 7.1 system.
Appreciate any advise and comment!
