I'm moving to a new place come August 1st and will finally have the money for a full 5.1 system to go alongside my 47 inch Panny and RP82 DVD player. I'm pretty much settled on getting either an HK 230 or 330 AVR. I noticed that HK has their own online store that sells refurbed AVRs. I was wondering if anyone around here had experienced with buying refurbed direct from them and how it worked out. I also noticed that the refurbs are labeled with a Z on the end (230-Z instead of 230, etc...) Is this anything for me to worry about, is it the same product as the brand new ones? Finally, are there any big differences between the 230 and 330 other than the 6.1 vs. 7.1 support and power output? I'm probably going to go with the 330 but want to make sure it will give me a performance benefit (not just more features) over the 230 on a 5.1 system.
