I was finally ready to pull the trigger on a Denon 4311 so I called up the local shop and they had only 1 left in stock but just before I could reserve it, one of the other stores snagged it from the distribution center. So the sales guy gave me a call back offering me a 4520 for roughly $500 less than retail. He also offered me a Pioneer SC67 for a good price. I had done my research on the 4311 and it had pretty much everything I want but I know the 4520 is even better. I did a quick look at the Pio and could probably be happy with it since its more in my price range.

What are your thoughts on these 2 units? Will I have buyers remorse if I go with the SC67 instead of the 4520?

If you're still on the hunt for a 4311 I found two authorized online retailers selling below ~$1,300 (before shipping). Vanns and Onecall. I went to Onecall first and asked for their best price. Was quoted $1,320 delivered. I later called Vanns and they would match. I ended up ordering with Onecall since they quoted me first. Good luck in your search.

You can get the 4311 refurbished for a very good price.
