Just looking for the cheapest receiver that has room correction software (Audyssey, or whatever Yamaha, Pioneer, Onkyo call theirs).

I'll be using Pioneer bookshelf speakers and an audiosource 12" powered sub.

This setup won't get much use, so I really want to cheap-out on the receiver. I was about to get the Sherwood RX-4105 but then thought it might not be a good idea to not have room correction.

Google is your friend. I found a yamaha (YPAO is their room correction) for about 350 bucks. A denon 1912 for around 400 with audyssey. I'd look at electronics expo and call them you can probably get close to 30 percent or more of the 549 priced 1912 denon with the xx13 models soon coming out. You might even try some of denon's refurb stores for a deal.

check out sites that specialize in refurbs.

accessories4less has an older denon 591 for 229.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!

I think the Pioneer 521/522 is the cheapest new receiver with room correction. The 521's are drying up fast though.

+1 the Audyssey correction on these Denons outshines the others, especially because it addresses the subwoofer where the others don't. Additionally, at least on the lower level Pioneer's, the room correction seems to be little more than setting speaker distance (my experience with an 821).
