I'm a long-term 2 channel audio guy and have spent very little time thinking about home theater...so I'd appreciate a little help.

I'd like to put together a 3.1 HT system (L, R, Center, Sub, & Receiver) for my girlfriend. She's not fond of lots of equipment, wires, speakers everywhere and she lives in a condo so I think a simple 3.1 system should be more than enough for her needs. This purchase won't be the first step in an ongoing higher-demand upgrade path..just one purchase for decent sound and move on to other concerns..

She'll use the system about 50/50 for music/HT. It should be bluetooth capable so she can stream pandora..etc.. from her phone to the system.

Budget..maybe $400 max?

(A HTiB wouldn't be out of the question..I picked up a Onkyo 7.1 system years ago and it's been fine...)

Any ideas? Receiver make/models, speaker/sub make models?

thx in advance..
