I have been looking at receivers for about a month now and can't decide what I should get. I was planning on getting the RX-V673 Yamaha then it went up in price from 550-600 so I started looking at what else is out there the Onkyo NR616 looks like a good buy but there seems to be a lot of problems with it. You guys all seem to know a lot, what do you recommend? I really don't want to spend more then $550.00 . I have polk in walls for my 7 speakers and one bic f12 sub. I would like the option to go 7.2 someday but not necessary. Thanks for your help in advance

The Denon 1913 is $480 after figuring in the gift card.

http://dealnews.com/-100-Amex-Gift-Card-for-free-with-select-Denon-Home-Theater-Receiver-/659183.html

This is from an authorized retailer.

Just one suggestion.

That seems like a pretty good deal. I haven't ever looked at denon but it might be the right one. Thanks for the info.

Denon deal expired I guess it wasn't meant to be. So mark that one back up to $578.

If I can sell my current receiver for not dirt cheap, I'm going to be getting the Pioneer 1222.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117412

Class D3 amp? Yes please.

Ordered the Pioneer 1222 from New egg $550.00, seemed like the most bang for the buck. I think I have everything bought now... Time to get back to work and get this basement done! Thanks Everyone!
