New surround receiver

Hi.
I was looking for a new surround receiver, but I have to work overseas for 6 months in a couple of days, and therefore I wanted to wait till I got home to buy one. However, I found out that a website has the Marantz 7010 on sale for about 1200$/850£, due to it being the last years model. So I was wondering if I should just buy that, and have it waiting for me when I get home?
Originally I was planning on buying either the NAD 758 or the Denon X3300W when I got home, so the Marantz is a step up price wise. If any of you have any input on this I'd appreciate it very much, since I can't really deside if I should just get the Marantz now.
Hope you can help.

No. AVRs continue to evolve and increase in functionality very rapidly. So you'll likely get more for your money in 6 months.

And worse, buying an expensive electronic item just to have it sit while half of the warranty ticks by is not in your best interest.

The warranty is 3 years here, so 6 months shouldn't be a problem. But I under stand what you say, I didn't think that they evolved so very much from year to year. But thanks for the input, I'll probably wait then.
