Well, I'm slacking off at work again, and was browsing what receiver to buy with my Infinity Beta 50 system.

I was thinking of going with the Onkyo 605, but then noticed we had the display model Onkyo 804 as open box now. I can get the used 804 for only about 100 dollars more than the new 605.

Which one would you go with? Newer technology in the 605, and brand new in box, or a higher end, albiet older 804, that has more power and pre-outs if I were to expand and get some external amps down the road?

I really can't afford the Onkyo 705 becuase thats 100 more than the 804, and 200 more than the 605.

the questions you need to ask yourself... do you need the extra power? and do you need/want HD audio decoding in your receiver?
