Well there are a couple of things to consider, so let's see if I can help map them out to you.
#1) Is BC (Backwards Compatibility) for the ps2 important to you?
#2) Are there games or movies you want now?
#3) What can your TV and AVR support for video and audio?
#4) Why do you want one ASAP? What specific features, games, etc are you looking for?
The answers to those questions will help us give you a more accurate recommendation as every person's needs and wants can be very different...
