Though it's not always advisable, I would suggest scouting your local B&M for Clearance and Open Box models that are higher MSRP than the ones you've listed.
Typically, though they are display or demo or customer return units, they'll have a full manufacturer's warranty from the day you buy it, and you'll still have the option to buy an extended at a more reasonable price that if you got it at MSRP or original retail.
That way, you pretty much guarantee yourself a higher (generally) quality unit with all the features and functions you need and more for the same or even better price you were going to buy at anyways.
Give your budgets at $850-$1000, I might suggest hitting your local BB and seeking out the Pioneer Elite SC-67 or even Yamaha 3020/2020, which I've seen discounted down to about $1100 or less. Make them an offer to take it off their hands, and you never know, they may just work with you to help you both out. You can usually bargain to get at least another 10% off and do the no-interest financing option if you have a BB Credit Card. Though they've changed the Rewards program so it's not as beneficial as before.
To save even more money, see if they have one or two models below those on clearance or open box display. That's how I scored a BNIB Pioneer Elite SC-57 for about half off MSRP among other things.
