So long as it is not absurdly expensive, price is not really a problem. This is something I have wanted to do for a while now, so if it works, I'm willing to shell out some cash.

It’s in USD but that’s easier for me to relate to, and I imagine you can get that in Canada right? Anyway, don’t go spending too much on cable, around that price should be fine.

-Will I need a new soundcard. I have a built in Realtek soundcard on an Asus motherboard.
-My living room is 4.5x4.5m, and I listen to all types of music, but nothing at annoy-your-neighbor's volume level. I don't feel like I need anything monstrous to fill the room.
-I will need to send the speaker wires through the floorboard heaters to get them into the living room, is regular speaker wire OK?
-Is a 2-channel stereo receiver what I should be looking for? This is generally what I can find in stores around town. Does this mean it allows for an A + B speaker arrangement?
