The Onkyo TX-SR500 is currently available at J&R for $149.88. Yes, it's refurbished, but the price is practically 50% off of the "street price" for this unit. Comes with an one year Onkyo factory warranty. Within that one year, you can go to Onkyo's website and purchase another 2 years of extended factory warranty for a little over $30.00. So for well under $200.00 (not including shipping cost), you have a highly rated "almost new" receiver with 3 years of factory warranty. Not bad.
