I have been doing a lot of research, especially around these forums and have been looking at the following receivers:


Pioneer 920 new $273

onkyo 607 Refurb $249

onkyo 608 Refurb $327

Pioneer 1020 Refurb $339


My goal was to keep the receiver under 300 so I am leaning towards the new 920 or getting the onkyo 608 refurb. I am looking for the best sound quality and will be running a 5.1 so I do not know if the 608 and 1020 are overkill. Will pair this with polk 6750 or similarly priced model.


Any opinions on new vs refurb? Which of these deals would you pick or would you go with something else?

currently you should be able to get the VSX-1020 new for the price you posted.

deserved or not, Onkyo's have been hit with a lot of HDMI video failures according to a bunch of web chatter. The 608 would be the better choice of the two

So then would the 608 refurb be better than the 1020 new? If I am only doing a 5.1 system should i aim for a lower receiver (wont be upgrading anytime soon)
