Thanks! Sorry guys, yes it was the v773

Looks to be a really nice receiver and a pretty big step up from my pioneer 819 lol...

Is 450 a good price for that? Or might it come down a bit more?

Also thoughts on adding the extended warranty, and accessories4less as a company

Thats a very good price thats unlikely to come down significantly. Do keep in mind that its a refurb though. Not that its a problem just wanted to make sure you know.
accessoriesforless is a fine company.
Dont know anything about the warranty.

Great. Seems like a lot of people go thru them and for a full 5 year warranty for $50, and the price of a receiver of this caliber, I don't think I could go wrong.

Thanks again guys and to the OP as well , for giving me a much better option than I was originally going to choose smile.gif

You can get the $50 back by getting the 7065, instead. Unless you need the wireless.

So I think I have it narrowed down to a handful the Denon X2000, Denon 2113ci, Marantz sr5007, or a yamaha.. Do the Yamaha's eq the sub as well like the audessy does?? I can also get the Sony 1040 brand new for an enormous discount due to my employment perks.. So I still Don't know...

I went with the now discontinued Yamaha RX-V1600...and I'm glad I did. What a great piece of equipment for us budget guys. It does everything well. Even though I traded two concert tickets that I had won on the radio for it. So basically it cost me $20 for gas...:-D.

Maybe.

Maybe not. :D

Open box SC-1222 via Amazon, $388.

Put it on my Amazon charge, so, if there's any problem, I should have some recourse.

So much for Black Friday. :p

I'm looking for my first AVR in a similar price range.  I was thinking about the Onkyo TX-NR626 or the STR-DN840, mostly because of price, CNET reviews, and built in WiFi...  but have become interested in the Denon AVR-X2000 even though it is $650.

I got the DN840 because of CNET and price match at BB. I needed to upgrade from my old Yamaha HTR6090. The Bluetooth/Wifi additions are really nice. Bluetooth is great for quickly streaming music at a party. There are plenty of HDMIs and 2 sub capability within this price range is nice. I'm no audiophile but I am happy with the upgrade. No complaints yet.

That was an open box and is long gone by now.

Wow. That was fast. Out of all the suggestions above, which should be considered as the best bang for your buck.

Impossible to say. Most of those links are sale prices from days ago.

Ok. Thanks.

Most good sales are posted here:

but they are usually few and far between.

There are some AVRs in the AVS classifieds; one may be local to you.
