I would start with a receiver like the Onkyo TX-SR807 then add Paradigm's new speakers the Se series which can be viewed here -

A recent blind study was done and these speakers totally won over some costing many times more.
Anthem, Conrad Johnson, Dish Network/JVC, Dynaudio, Infinity, Integra, JL Audio, Klipsch, Magnepan, Marantz, Martin Logan, Onkyo, Oppo, Outlaw Audio, Panasonic, Paradigm, REL, Sumiko, SVSound, and Toshiba are the brands equipment I currently use. I have owned/used and tested equipment made by just about any manufacturer you can name.

I agree with Loves2Watch regarding Onkyo receivers. Pick one that meets your budget after paying for speakers and cabling. I really like the Anthony Gallo speakers in my system. I use the A'Diva Ti as surrounds (currently $213 each at with an in-ceiling mount ($32) that makes them almost disappear, while allowing you to direct the sound. Gallo's center and reference speakers that I use would blow your budget at the audiophileliquidator's price of $941 each, but I heard an all A'Diva Ti system at the dealer where I bought mine that sounded excellent. Match with a subwoofer of your choice, such as SVS and you will have money left over. Alternatively, if you have the space and can stand the appearance, use Magnapan ( MMG ($600/pair) and MMG-C ($300) for the front speakers and you'll still have money left over.

Taking help of professional home theater installers is the best way to build up a new 5.1 home theater system perfectly for the right balanced audio. Hire only a professional and reputed personal to get it done.
