I bought an Onkyo for the kitchen... it has all that you mentioned and is pretty ok. I added a Teufel subwoofer though. I like that the hifi remote controls the ipod when the ipod is docked, and also that it charges the ipod without the special (scosch? no that's not right) adapter for 3rd and 4th gen ipods. The ipod dock is good quality, and you can use any analogue interconnects you want so I have some QED Qunex 2s on it.
It plays MP3 via CD or USB. And it actually works !
