AV Receiver for ELAC speakers and BIC 12 Woofer

Castle Knight 2 Speakers

Hello Friends, I was waiting for this day quite long. I had limited budget and cud not afford a good HT in India as you all know prices in India compared to other countries is steep high.

At present this is what I managed to get to India from US -
1. Bic 12 sub woofer
2. ELAC B6 bookshelf for front left and right
3. ELAC C5 center speaker

I have to purchase two things now - An AV receiver and Rear speakers.

I need your suggestion on following things, please help me

1. I am looking for a receiver with 3-4 HDMI ports, if possible HDCP 2.2 enabled, Bluetooth, WI-FI, 5.1 or 7.2 with minimal budget. Please suggest one with minimal expenses

2. What is the best way to use an AV receiver imported from USA. They are on 110V, did anyone face any problem. Does using a stepdown transformer help? Do these transformers create a buzzing sound (noise) or any other issues like AV getting burnt due to voltage fluctuations etc.

Please suggest me as soon as you can as I am travelling on 17th October.

Regards and lot of appreciation for the help
