I'm thinking of getting the VSX-521 for my bedroom. Just a simple setup. Are there any problems with these units I should be aware of?

Sounds good!

You need to read the 521 owners thread or the reviews on Amazon, especially about the artifacts when running video thru this receiver.

Thanks. I could not find it. Just things on the 921, 1021, 1121 ect.

Sounds good!

Looks like set up/understanding issues to me!

Sounds good!

I skimmed through a couple of pages and some posters state that artifacts are present with some cables but disappeared with higher quality cables.

It's enough to keep me away from it altogether; I'm looking at the 821 or something else at the same price point.

Well, I just want something cheap for my bedroom. Newegg has a really good deal on them right now. Something with HDMI. My other choices are the Denon 1312 or the Yammy 571. But are almost $100 more without a promotion.

Sounds good!
