Hi everybody, I REALLY need some advice regarding whether I should by a refurbished Pioneer THX receiver. Here is the receiver in question: Pioneer VSX-26TX --the price is $259 before shipping. I need some experienced advice--please help me. I need to know if: 1) Buying refurbished is a good idea--what have been your experiences? 2) Is this a good price for the 26TX refurbished--$259 (it sure seems like a good price )? 3) Any bad experiences with ecost--overall their rating is very good with BizRate but as with anything you have to take ratings with a grain of salt--mostly people with bad experiences have an axe to grind, but I realize people have definitely been burned by them. 4) Dolby Pro-Logic II or DTS NEO:6 is not a necessity, and neither is 6.1 or 7.1. I'm a firm believer in the statement "They don't build them like they used to" and am thinking this receiver will have VERY good DD & DTS processing as well as being good for 2-channel music--what do you Folks think? Any advice would be greatly appreciated--thank you very much for your time!
