Well, after about three years of problem after problem it looks like my Harmon Kardon is done. Can you guys recommend a replacement that would run around $350.00 or so? I was thinking maybe an Onkyo, Denon or Yamaha and was hoping to get something with comparable features but without all the problems!

Thanx for any help

You should be able to pick up one of last year's models on clearance for under your budget. Check with your local Best Buy stores for a demo.

I'm in the same boat. I have a found a Yamaha RX-V571BL Open Box (missing the remote and the YPAO setup mic) for $199.99 plus tax. Thinking of getting it since I have a Harmony One Remote and can borrow the YPAO setup mic from my brother.

An "open box" unit should still come with the mfr's full warranty making it a good buy as well. smile.gif

I should probably have mentioned that I think the open box might actually be missing the box too. eek.gif
