Was that a Fry's weekly deal? Haven't seen the 6500 that cheap.

Somewhere between the time I left the store and the time I got home I got confused and thought it was a X6500H. But $849 for an X4500H is still a great deal. Sorry for the confusion

That puts my mind to rest. I bought a 4500 back in January for a similar price. Was thinking I should've waiting when I saw the 6500 for that price.

Are the Fry's promo codes that you get in the daily emails only good instore? I'm trying to order the Yamaha rx v685 and it says the promo code was accepted but the price isn't changing.

I just tried it and it works for me. You sure you're looking at the correct column? It still says the "Unit Price" is $549 but on the rightmost column, the "Total Price" is $348.

If we buy an item from Frys.com using the promo code, and choose in-store pickup, how can we also get 20% off instore? It seems like you are required to pay for the item online before you pick it up in the store.




Also, are the 20% off coupons all the time, or just select days?

Yea @Landmonster they send it every Wed I think. Good news is you now have a week to research and sweat it out before pulling the trigger on the lx503.

So, here are 3 receivers in my consideration:


1) Denon X3500h for $529.
https://flash.newegg.com/Product/9SI...E&gclsrc=aw.ds


2) Onkyo RZ830 for $549
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...E&gclsrc=aw.ds


3) Pioneer Elite LX503 for $499
https://www.frys.com/product/9543542





They are all about the same price. I will be using them to drive Polk LSi speakers... and my main objective is being able to drive the speakers properly, with the maximum sound quality. Ideas on which is best?

www.acousticsounddesign.com still has the rz830 for $509.15 after applying coupon code TV15. It is with free shipping and also no sales tax to me. I am pretty sure Frys would charge sales tax. I think the Pioneer warranty is only 1 year vs 3 on the Onkyo. I think the Rz830 is the better deal out of these, but I don't own the others.

The Denon has Audyssey MultEQ XT32 while the Onkyo has Chromecast. Given the choice, I'm biased to the Denon, but I am a novice. I like the Yamaha brand, however the top Audyssey seems to have a large following and I might switch.

Ok, my wife has approved me to get either a new 9.1 channel receiver for our home theater which isn't finished,but functional or a 75" 4K TV upgrade for our living room.

Which would you go with. My current Integra DHC-60.5 has been giving me some issues and is only 7.1 and came out in 2012 I believe.

For receivers I am looking at the Marantz SR6013 or the Denon 4400 or 4500 which ever has the better deal, but I am learning towards the 6013. I was thinking of using 3 of my Marantz 700 Mono Blocks to power all three front speakers and use the receiver to power surrounds and height speakers. It would be nice to have Dolby Atmos 7.X.4.

On the TV it would be nice to have a bigger picture in our living room since our current 12 year old 60" Sony rear projection TV looks small to me know. It was big at the time we got it, having better sound in my theater would be nice as well.

Any thoughts on it?

I'd go with the TV. Then when the Integra receiver dies, the wife will be forced to let you upgrade the receiver. 7.1 sounds good no matter how you slice it too.

You’re going to get a much bigger improvement going from a rear projection TV to 4K.

Denon deal is dead. Glad I snagged one last night.

EDIT: But it's back at Amazon! $529 still, free two day shipping with Prime. Cancelled my Egg, and ordered from Amazon.

EDIT #2 : And it's dead. Geez, these go fast at this price.

I just was messing around with the Integra and one my 700 Mono Blocks is not working, one of my Carver 15cb's isn't working, my Marantz 5x150 watt amp is also not working. I did some testing on my rear surrounds and and am not getting what I was before. The reciever I am looking at is around $800, a TV would be over $1K. She rather me spend 800. I need to think on it some more.

Also she said I can't get the TV then get a receiver later.

The Onkyo RZ830 9.2 AVR is a good deal here at $599

Pioneer Elite LX 503 9.2 also on sale at Fry's for $499

If you have a fry's nearby go in and ask for a 20% off coupon to lower it even further. Or print this out

Some fry's store give you the 20% discount even on already paid items. Because you can always pick the item, return it right there and buy the same item again with 20% managers coupon.

But if they don't, buy another one at the store and return what you bought online in the store itself. Simple.

Most stores don't ask for the coupon either. Just ask the greeter at the front door that you want managers discount coupon. There are 25 coupons per day and he/she will give you one.

New TV for sure. Receiver upgrade will not be as significant as the TV upgrade. Trust me on this. And I will go with Samsung 8000 series because of its reliability and built in applications. While it was advertised at Fry's for $1800, the salesman was willing to give it for $1500 plus tax.

Visio P series is also very good.

Sorry I have had bad luck with Integra products so I won't buy Onkyo anymore.

I got the Marantz SR6013 for 47% off right now on sale at Accessories4less and extra 2 year warranty. It will do 7.x.4 like want. I will be using 3 of my Marantz 700 Mono Blocks to power the front LCR and use the receiver to run everything else. Now I will have to sneak in Atmos speakers and rear surrounds at sometime and suprise her when it's all hooked up.

Thanks for posting, best price ever on this but they keep dropping the price every 3 weeks between New Egg and Amazon, I wonder if something new is to be released.

You may be on to something. I've been waiting for it to get below $1500. I couldn't pass on this price.
