Use a rack that is in your budget, has the features you need and holds all of your equipment. Asking an open ended question like that is like going to a car forum and saying "I need a new mode of transportation. What do you guys recommend?" Too many unanswered questions. Receiver - Get one with the features and connectivity you need. It should be able to drive the impedance of your speakers without overheating and shutting down. Make sure it has an automatic calibration system. I'm partial to Pioneer. Others like different manufacturers. We have a section dedicated to receivers. HTPC - I think we have a section for that as well. Never been in it. Satellite receiver - Yes, you can mount the receiver in the rack as well. I've seen pictures in magazines of it.. I think they used rack mounted shelves.
