Accessories4less is blowing out the Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 for $599 ($1800 MSRP) Given you room description, the 972's Trinnov EQ really might be a boon. While most AVR's from AC4L are B-Stock or Refurbished, the 972's are brand new and they offer a 3 Year Manufacturers Warranty.
I am not crazy about the Remote Control and there is about a 1 second pause when switching between HDMI Sources, but I have not experienced any real issues. In addition, Trinnov EQ is one of the most advanced RoomEQ Setups ever offered on an AVR.
AC4L also sells Denon, Marantz, and Onkyo. For $600, you could get a real nice AVR there. Also, check out Newegg during the weekend as they usually have their best deals then..
Both are Authorized Dealers for everything they sell. AC4L does offer a 30 Day Return Window whereas Newegg's is more complicated and I believe you are even accessed a "restocking fee"/ All Newegg AVR's are brand new or A-Stock. They occasionally have a few B-Stock AVR's, but they do not offer a 1 Year Warranty like AC4L offers on all of their B-Stock brands.
