I originally bought it from Newegg..but after that whole authorized dealer/warranty will be honoured by Newegg debacle, I decided to return and wait a little longer. Seeing that nothing has sparked my eye and that I am intentially avoiding Onkyo's because of their price (specifically their 5509 prepro not available in the US) and the fact that they still don't give the end user the ability to custum assign pre-outs like the Denon, then I will be going with the Denon.
Loved it the first time I had it, and even though I don't plan on using the amps, it is such a nice machine to look at. My girlfriend really likes it too!
Thanks for the link to the price talk someone gave earlier...
EDIT: Oh wow..you can rate posts...i haven't been on avsforum in a little while (got busy trying to graduate:rolleyes:)
