For an AVR, go with the Onkyo 606, should be able to find it for around $350. What model are your new JBL speakers? Try to find a matching sub (or just buy a 3rd speaker).

I'd start there. Unless your room is perfectly square, or you only watch movies alone, I can't recommend a soundbar that would keep up with 3 nice speakers across the front, much less a full 5.1 setup.

Unfortunately, the 5100 still only offers HDMI passthrough (i.e. no audio to the AVR via HDMI) so that won't solve...

"I thought the receiver was cool because it had HDMI inputs... at the time i didn't know that audio wouldnt work through it which kinda made me mad."
