This receiver is new and not a refurb or "B" stock. I purchased it and then found a better deal on a 56txi. So now I need to sell this one. Again, this one is brand new. I paid $570. I would like to get $570 as well which is the cheapest price I found on one that was NOT a refurb. Let me know if you have any other questions. How does this compare to the Pioneer 1015? It weighs 5 pounds more, has Advanced MCAAC, has 22,000f capacitors as opposed to the 15,000 caps in the 1015, and it has dual 48 bit Motorola chips as opposed the single in the 1015.
