The 818 was on a terrific sale yesterday, what were they, five or six hundred dollars, so no, I am guessing he didn't spend a lot on the AVR. He has the right idea anyway, if you don't have a lot to blow on a whole surround sound setup, get quality components one at a time, and wait for good deals. He will have a killer system by the end of that, and he won't have spent a fortune to get it.
