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.

Did yours have all the accessories?
I picked one up, but it was a store display model with no accessories (no remote, no calibration mic) and the front panel cover broken off. I actually didn't notice that until I saw a picture of an intact one.
I could have lived with the missing panel cover if it had the calibration mic as I can find the remote, but not the mic. I just returned it (to Cherry Hill, NJ if anyone's interested).

This is a great deal compared to the X3500H, as the LX701 can expand to 11 channels with an external amp for 7.1.4 like the Denon X4500H and X3600H

Update
looks like one big difference is the pioneer supports 5.2.4, where the Denon does 7.2

I returned mine as well. They had it rated in a condition where it specifically says will include all major parts. They brought it out with no box, manual, mic, or remote. It was a demo. The GM wouldn't agree to the price of the lower rating so I said F it and walked. 2 hours wasted that day.

I tried to find one around me and failed (22408). However, I did find an lx504 near some relatives of mine and thought about asking them to ship it to me. I ended up finding something else, but if anyone is interested there's an open box lx504 in the 90716 area. I called and spoke to the manager (who wouldn't ship it) and he said that it has some minor scratches but is missing accessories.

Wondering if someone can point me in the 'right' direction regarding the receivers that were formerly available at Costco... namely, the Denon AVR-S750H vs. Yamaha TSR-7850.

I think the Denon is basically out both locally and online. I did find the Yamaha on sale locally for $460. It doesn't look like they'll be getting any more either (the * on the Costco sales tag indicates when it's gone, it's done). On previous optimal sale days, The Yamaha could be had for $380-390, but since it's on clearance, I doubt they'll have a bigger official sale on it. Not sure it's wise to wait for it to drop even more when they only have several left.

I know the Denon had been available for $340-350, depending on if you snagged it during a sale. But no telling if it's ever coming back.

I just need something with 2 Zones, 6 speaker capability, ARC, and streaming app music capability and I think both fit the bill. This is going into a great room to power ceiling speakers for music. The speakers will double as TV speakers. Dedicated home theater is another room, not going to be used with this amp, so top quality is not necessarily needed.

Thanks for those links. Yes, I've heard of accessories4less quite a few times on this forum. They did have the S750H very very briefly a day ago, but ran out pretty quick and before I could decide if I wanted to get a refurb.

The rooms the receiver are for are in a new home build, so I figure I shouldn't have the warranty run out before the home is even built

Because of Costco's good customer service/return policy/extended warranty, I did purchase the Yamaha TSR-7850 basically because they'll be out soon.

How longer after release before old models go on sale?

So how long after a new model is announced will the old models go on sale? I’m looking to get a Yamaha adventage 1080 or 2080 got quoted a new 1080 for 900 but if Yamaha is going to be announcing the new models soon and they go on sale shortly after I will wait and see what kind of close out deals I will get.

So typically how long after before they hit the sales rack?? Thanks

you have to wait for the new models to actually show up in stores. then dealers will heavily discount the outgoing models. That price for the 1080 really isn't that good since it maxes out at 7.2. You should be able to find 9 channel receivers in that price range.

I thought I saw someone say Onkyo will be making an announcement soon too. Just got the email for the web deal on the PR-RZ5100 for $1499. I am now stuck between this and the x6500 once the x6700 starts shipping.

Best advice is put the receiver in wish list on amazon and check it once a day.On Christmas Day last year I got the Yamaha 2080 for 999 after keeping it in wish list for two months where it was always 1500 until that one day.

Even easier, if you're waiting for a price drop and the item is already available at Amazon, is to use Camelcamelcamel.com to track the price for you. You set up an account, enter the url of the product you want. It will show you the history of the price at Amazon and its 3rd party dealers. Then enter the min price you'd like to be alerted about.

Try it out

I am thinking about swapping over from yamaha to denon for xt32. Where is the place to buy one from if I want to try the denon out and if I don't like it return it.
There may be no place that will let you do that. I buy a lot from Amazon but don't know if they would let me return something like that.

If the item is available via Amazon Prime, check and see if it has free returns. Most Prime items do. They'll pay for shipping.
Otherwise see what's still available at a local retailer. Best Buy has most Denon items (if available), but there may be others.
You'll want to check their return policies during the pandemic.

FWIW, I emailed Pioneer support regarding finding a microphone. The reply came from an Onkyo rep, who gave me a link to an Onkyo parts web site. The Pioneer receivers are in their database as well.
https://www.shoponkyo.com/

On their respective pages, putting in SC-LX701 as the search term, the Pioneer remote control came up, and a microphone did as well, but it was listed as an Onkyo part. I asked the rep to confirm that the Onkyo mic could be used interchangeably with the Pioneer APM7008. He just replied that the one on the site is what they show as compatible. It seems to be applicable for all the other Pioneer Elite receivers I typed in, as well as Onkyo TX-NR797, TX-RZ830. It's cheaper than I saw it on ebay from China, so I'll give it a shot.

I called and spoke to the manager (who wouldn't ship it) and he said that it has some minor scratches but is missing accessories.
