Home Theater Questions

I just purchased a Panasonic 50" GT50, I am now in the market for a Blu-ray player and some kind of audio system. I spent most of my money on the TV so I will likely have to buy these upgrades in stages.
The first will be a blu-ray player. I am considering several Panasonic models including the bdt-500 and bdr-220. I am open to other sugguestions. What is most important to me is video quality and then audio quality, web apps do not matter as my TV has plenty and so does my X-box.
My next dilema is audio. I have considered the sound bar option but I am not sure what my best bet is. I do not want to spend $800 on audio equipment right now. $500 is probably my max, I would really like to be around $350. I have considered all one systems that combine Blu-ray player and receiver packaged with speakers but have heard mixed reviews of these. I would not mine having the multiple units like with a receiver that I can channel all my devices through. I will not however be able to wall mount my speakers in my apartment, if wireless speakers exist I would be very interested in them if they are reasonably priced. I have not found any yet. I am fine running speaker wires under my rug to the back of the room if need be. Any recommendations here would be great I do not know much about receivers or speakers I have limited experience with a Yamaha 7.1 receiver with Klipsch speakers but I think that is out of my price range and 7.1 would be more than I need 5.1 is plenty.
Thanks for the help!
