Help me buy a Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router

Currently use TW cable with one of their rental modems. Would like to buy my own and add wifi to my home. I use an iMac, a couple of iPhones and will possibly add a tablet soon. No gaming. Home is under 2000sq ft. Use is mostly casual internet, work related. Occasionally download movies. Stream from my mac to my stereo would be nice. Can anyone make any recommendations? I don't need anything top end but would care to avoid too rapid obsolescence. TIA
