Is this a good deal? Everywhere else seems to be selling this for $300 or more.
I would try and get a receiver with 100 watts per channel.
I think Best Buy has a Yamaha on sale for less than $200.
It's a Pioneer.
I noticed Best Buy's website says 100 watts at 1khz.
I'll check Pioneer's website for more info because I'm curious.
$149.00 with free shipping from www.bestbuy.com
I'm not sure which is the better buy.
Seems like the Denon might be the better buy because of the specs.
Denon (100 watts - 8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD)
Pioneer (100 watts x 5, 1kHz, 1% THD @ 8 ohms)
I'm assuming 20khz is better than 1khz at 100 watts, so I guess the Denon is the better buy since at Denon (110 watts - 6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7 % THD).
The Denon also seems like a good price at $199 because of this:
Dedicated subwoofer output allows for the addition of a powered subwoofer
Midnight Mode compresses frequency response and boosts dialogue of movies, allowing you to enjoy surround sound without disturbing others
Includes SR remote with full controls for Pioneer DVD players
500 watts of total system power (100 watts x 5, 1kHz, 1% THD @ 8 ohms)
Dolby Digital and DTS processing for movie-theater-style sound
Dolby Pro Logic II extrapolates stereo sources (FM radio, CD or VHS) into full-bandwidth 5.1-channel surround sound, mimicking DVD-Audio and SACD
5.1-channel analog inputs allow you to add a DVD-Audio or SACD player for thrilling ultrahigh-fidelity music
2 digital audio inputs (1 optical, 1 coaxial) provide a bit-for-bit connection to CD or DVD players
3 A/V inputs and 3 audio-only inputs; 1 A/V output, 1 audio-only output and 1 video-only output
Digital AM/FM tuner with 30 station presets
AM/FM station name input allows you to program your receiver to display the names of your favorite stations
Warranty Terms - Parts 1 year
I wish I had waited.
I paid about almost $300 for a 5.1 Yamaha receiver but that was over 2 years ago.
I would rather have the Denon 1082 (3802) from 6thave @ $595 delivered.
I'm not getting another receiver anytime soon but I guess they are out of stock on the 1082.
I agree that is a great price considering it's equivalent to the 3802.
