    If anyone is seriously considering the purchase of this receiver, Best Buy currently has it on sale for $299 + local tax if it applies. The receiver is also this price via BestBuy.com - however, I've heard that BB has started to charge for handling fees in addition to the shipping charges, so it might be better to pick it up locally.

    I'm not sure how long the sale is good for. But, I would suspect that today - Saturday 12/14/2002 could be the last day for the sale.

    [Edit]: Best Buy has kept the 811 @ $299.99 for the past several weeks. It is now estimated that this sale will end on 1/4/2003.

    There's another way to get this receiver for a bit cheaper. Some people are buying the receiver from Circuitcity.com and are using the MSN Holiday promotion where they will get 20% back in February 2003 for other purchases. They are then having Circuit City match Best Buy's price. All together, the 'net' price is about $180.00. The only downside to the deal is waiting until February for the 20% incentive -- that you have to use to buy more stuff as opposed to just getting a rebate back or cash off the purchase price. The Circuit City deal also involves receiving a $30 gift card.

    The details as taken from Anandtech.com:

    Thanks, Sean. It appears, unfortunately, that CC online has squireled away all their D811s's! At Anandtech in the thread on the D811s deal at Best Buy is posted the inside dope - CC have the receivers in their warehouse but they removed the item entirely from the website. You see the 411, 511 and 711, but no 811. Obviously, they want to prevent people from price matching the Best Buy deal until it's over next Saturday. Good for you. I should have tried to do this several days ago when it was still possible. Now I think I'll get a Kenwood VR-6060 or VR-6070. Probably the 6070, since I can get it for around $55 more and it evidently has OSD, preamp outs and THX certification. However, I'm not sure I will benefit from those features, particularly the THX. However, I think you got your receiver for little more than 1/2 what I'm probably going to pay.

    We may be able to get a deal on the 811S for a bit less soon, so if you miss out on BB's, don't worry. Just a bit of advanced warning for HTF folks. [​IMG]
