virtual surround options

  Hello.  I am wondering what are the options for "virtual surround"
recievers or speaker systems?   I'm particularly interested in a reciever
that will do virtual surrounds with a real left, right, center, and
subwoofer, and that costs around 300 dollars or less.   I'm looking into
this for my parents.  My mom is tired of the speaker wires being everywhere
and having to cover them up with a rug, and she would like to get rid of the
rear speakers if the sound would be similar.  They also are thinking of
getting rid of their gigantic 25 year old stereo/AV rack and replacing it
with something smaller, as well as getting smaller speakers than the old
Boses they currently have.
