Okay, so I'm ready to pull the trigger on a Denon AVR-2313ci.
I'm still pretty new here. Over and over again on this forum, I have seen "No price talk!" and comments about how one should call around and you'll get better prices than shopping online, frequently followed by "you have a PM." I'm assuming there's some unspoken rule around here that says we can't or shouldn't talk about actual prices from actual retailers -- just MSRP. I've looked for it a bit and haven't found it (yet), but the evidence is everywhere.
Anyway, like I said, I'm ready to pull the trigger. Amazon has it at MSRP, and I'm a Prime member, so I'd get 2-day shipping at no extra cost. There are literally hundreds of other smaller retailers; what I'm hoping for is some guidance on how to choose which ones to call, and how much better than MSRP can I expect to do on such a new unit? Do receivers suffer from the same "gray market" problem that cameras and some other electronics do? How hard is it to avoid that?
Any other purchasing advice would be greatly appreciated.
