I am wanting to replace a B&K AVR202 receiver in a dedicated home theater room to take advantage of the latest technology (such as blue-ray, streaming, etc...).  I am also adding a Sony PS3 to the following equipment I currently have (replacing an Oppo upscaling dvd player).  I am only running a 5.1 system at this time, but am contemplating adding a couple more speakers - 7.1 ???.  I don't need multi-zone for other rooms.

1. Mains: Martin Logan SL-3's

2. Center: Martin Logan Logos

3. Rears: M&K Satellite 1-B's

4. Sub: HSU Research VTF-3 MK3

5. TV: Samsung HL-T7288W

6. Amp: Anthem MCA-50

7. CD Players: (2) Pioneer Elite PD-F27 Changers

7: Receiver B&K AVR202

I am surmising it would be good to reuse the Anthem as part of the system?  I will use the PS3 primarily for movies (new to gaming).   Advice on what capabilities a new receiver (and which one?) would provide in addition to the PS3 would be greatly appreciated.  (Also have the Universal Remote MX900).

Thanks much.  Tim
