Just noticed today that 6Avenue droppped their price to $633. Had been debating between the following: H/K 525, Denon 3803 (a bit high in my budget range), Marantz SR-7300, but was apprehensive to take the HK due to lower power ratings and poor reliability reports. Also noticed that 6Avenue is no longer on the HK authorized retailers list, or were they ever? This seems to be a great deal? or is there another hidden reason for this 'clearance'? Does anyone know of problems with the new cooling design/exhaust fan? Or should I just stay away from any receiver with a built-in fan?
