    Hello,

    I was thinking about getting an Onkyo TX-DS898 Receiver. Does anyone know how long this receiver has been out and if Onkyo might be coming out with a replacement soon? I didn't want to buy one now only to find out that a newer model is coming out to replace it soon.

    Also what is the best price for the 898 that anyone has seen?

    Any comments appreciated.

    Thanks,

    George C.

    Fine RCVR. Yes a new one=model 800/900 will be out soon. Here is a list of ones I have considered but own a 3802.
    denon 5800=on clearance(big amps)/ 5803 is too high in price
    onkyo 898/989
    Pioneer 47/49
    hk 8000
    Sony 5es/7es
    jvc 10
    3803 will be out any day
    And many more. Check with 6th ave/ JR / Oades over the phone before you leap.

    I might wait because of the problems I have been hearing about with the current Onkyo's.

    I would like to stay under $1000. I like all the features the Onkyo 797 has.
