As compared to what?

Denon is among top tier reliable players IMO.

Most reliable
Yamaha (or Japan made Denon/Marantz (top two models each series))

2nd tier would include
Denon/Marantz lower models.

I meant compared to a refurbished Denon AVR with 1 year warranty.

I'm right there with you. Been eyeing the Denon-X3600H for quite a while to upgrade my theater to 7.1.4, and I'm kicking myself for not buying it when the price was $849 on Amazon in March. If the 3600 inventory doesn't increase and it stays at $1099/out of stock for the foreseeable future, I may just buy a Pioneer LX303 for $399. It'd only be a 5.1.4 setup, but at least that should hold me over until the new Denon models come out next year and the price on a 3600 significantly drops.

I’ve thought about doing the same but I really don’t want another receiver with no preouts. I’m trying to upgrade from the nr-686..... while it has an additional two channels, I’m afraid it’s also a bit underpowered for my needs... my neighbor just sold his lightly used rz830 for $450... seems I missed that deal as well

A used Denon x7200wa will get you there.

Any Memorial Day deals on receivers I should pay attention to? Looking for 100W+ and high current if possible to drive my Polk LSi9s and LSiC.

I got tired of waiting and bought a Denon X3600H w/HEOS 3 speaker for $1099 from Amazon today (Seller: ListenUp). ListenUp then sent me an e-mail a few hours later saying the 3600 is out of stock but "upgraded" me to a Denon X4500H instead. Although ListenUp is still listing the 3600 on Amazon, they're out of stock just like pretty much all the sellers right now. If anyone's looking for the 4500 though, it's a decent deal.

Question No Receivers

Just checking the Costco site for a new avr. And they have no receivers at all. When did this happen?

A lot audio/visual items are in short supply due Covid 19. I’ve been waiting on a backordered amp for the past 30 days. A lot of other amps are backordered too. That may be the reason.

I came across this site. I'm looking for a new AVR and this site lets you compare receivers side by side. You can type in two avr and see their stats. Or go by brand, model, year, watts, channels, etc.

PS: It does have links where the avr are for sale. So I don't know if this is allowed here. If not let me know where to post this for others to use.

In the deals thread, yes. Anywhere else, probably not. I have posted it before when someone asks about receiver x vs. receiver y. Sometimes it will stay, usually will be taken down.
