Hey thanks for that tip! That yamaha gets way better reviews than any of those receivers i posted. I'm not sure if the amazon ratings are a good identifier or you can tend to get some overly enthused reviewers
As is often mentioned regarding these lower level models .. choose the others for possibly better features, but choose the Denon for better audio fidelity as it's the only one that can EQ the subwoofer (aside from the Onkyo 1008 although that is a mid level model and not in same level as the others).
It's true I probably don't need all the bells and whistles, I just don't want to buy something that will limit me in the near future. Not that that's possible to stop anyways.
That 609 is also on onkyo refurb right now for like 265, but I have heard others complain about the no eq for sub.

Yeah i think i like the path you guys are on...
I think i can scoop up a denon avr1912 for around 300 on CL or ebay. Maybe even the AVR 2112CI
so I happened by a best buy today and found a 2113 out of box for $400, just the unit and power cord.. no remote or anything else, but a solid deal i thought for that model.
I am wondering how worth the step up is to that level compared to the 2112 or the 1912. Trying to hone in on the specific model that makes the most sense
The 2113CI is likely your best bet. Check to see if tBB has an Audyssey mic (ACM1HB) in their demo drawer as they generally separate the mics from the demos, otherwise it can be purchased directly from Denon or from eBay for about $25. The remote (RC-1167) will cost about $50 or you can use a Harmony remote and download the 2113CI settings to it from Logitech's website. Another option is to give Electronics Expo a "call" as you may be able to get a brand new in box unit for roughly the same price you'd pay after purchasing the missing accessories. Note also the Owner's manual is available as a .pdf on Denon's website.
