My center will be on top of the TV in a media niche, and the fronts will be on shelves in the media niche. The room is 14' x 18' with 9' ceilings.
I will be listening to 70% movies, 30% music.
Here are my choices:
Harman Kardon AVR630
Thanks in advance for any help.

Of those you listed, I would definately go for the NAD. NAD and PSB are owned by the same company and the combination is absolutely wonderful. I have an NAD T762 paired with some Image 2B's and a 9C as center, and I LOVE it. The clarity and detail that this combo provides is very hard to beat in this price range.
The Yamaha would also not be bad either, although not nearly as good as the NAD in my opinion. The HK, Marantz, and Pioneer would all not sound good with PSB in my opinion because they are all warm sounding receivers, and paired with PSB speakers with are also very warm sounding, the resulting sound would be too warm and almost muffled.
Good luck, and let us know what you decide.
