I am finally going to replace my old HK AVR-525. She paid for herself long ago. Still looks good too. 

 

So, I would like to spend between 600 - 700. Mostly movies but I will crank music whenever I have the house to myself. Speakers are all Tannoy. A pair of Sensys DC1's, the matching DCC, a pair of ceiling speakers for the rear's (dont know the model off hand) and sub. 

 

Saw an open box Denon X3000 for 699 at BestBuy. Not sure if that is a good deal or not.

 

Thanks

$500 new shipped with factory warranty. Stronger hdmi compatibility.
Ypao does eq subwoofer down to 30hz. Also has manual peq on main channels.
Lowest price full preamp output receiver.

The Denon X2000 may be a better buy unless you need the extra features on the X3000.

Thanks guys.

 

That Yamaha looks like a killer deal. Whats the catch ? New Egg is close enough for me to will call. I am ready to pull the trigger unless there is a good reason not to.

This Marantz has much better Room Correction. Offer him $550 or $600. This receiver will not last long ! I owned an SR 5002 for five years, with ZERO problems.

Picked up the Yamaha. So far I am loving it. Thanks

I think you got a better deal. I'd wager you would not be able to tell any difference between the 775 and the 1030 as far as sound goes
