I found one of these today at the Sony Outlet nearest my home. It was marked $249.99. I asked about it, and after looking at its spec sheet, I asked for one. The only one left was the display unit. The guy had to go dig around in the storeroom for it, which took over ten minutes,
I put it on my Sony card to get six month free financing, not that I needed to but it's always a nice option. When I got home, I looked at the receipt and discovered the salesman gave me a $25 discount. Nice! After taxes it was just under $238. Not a bad deal if you are OK with a refurbished item, which I am since this receiver is going in my basement.
