The SHERWOOD RD6108 is brand new. The RD7103 has been around quite a while now. It seems to be based on my research that the 6108 is the one to go with. As I stated in another thread I need a really cheap but good quality reciever. Am I right, that the RD 6108 for $129.99 at Circuit City does have better specs? I was gonna order the 7103 at WellSpent.org for $132.58 plus only $17 s&h. What do you think? I have to make decision quick if I order online. Otherwise I can drive up to CC today and get the 6108. ps: I could pull a 180* and get the Pioneer VSX-511 for $160 at ebay. It's an open box. Is the 511 THAT much better though?
