I'm seriously considering taking the Hail Mary shot on this Onkyo 1000. I can get it for $1675 legit authorized, $40 3 day shipping, and $90 for a 4 year extended warranty. I'm debating between this, the Denon 3910, and the Pioneer 59 which I can get for about $989, also legit. The trick is: Is the Onkyo really THAT much better? Ya feeling me? Certainly the feedback I've gotten thus far from any owner of the Onkyo and Integra has been nothing short of awe.
