    J&R usually sells the Onkyos for cheap. And they're an authorized Onkyo dealer. To get the best deal, don't accept the first price they quote. Ask for a lower price. I got an extra $20 off my 595.
    Not sure where to get good prices on Denon. Sorry.

    Good Guys was just clearing out the Denon 1601 for $199 maybe two weeks ago. It was "while supplies last". So if you can find one, snap it up.
    This site also has them for $222. http://www.6ave.com
    Onkyo 494 has DPL II while the Denon 1601 does not. The Denon 1602 does and would be a better direct comparison to the Onkyo.

    The Onkyo 494 does not have speaker delay/distance settings, so you might want to steer clear of it. However, the 595 model is excellent. If you can't afford to move up to the 595, then the Denon 1602 is probably your best bet.
