Technokid pretty much nailed my opinions on AV receivers. Avoid low end Sony and Denon. Their high end models are good but you won't find any under $1000. At the low end, Yamaha is good. Onkyo is heavily discounted by some sellers (20%-40%) so don't pay anything close to full retail. You should be able to haggle at BB. In general, markups are low on electronics so expect to get about 10% off. 40% discounts are common with discontinued models so do your research on what is current and discontinued. Speakers have a large markup (especially domestic brands) so 25% discounts can be had. It might be worthwhile to check out other stores. Independent AV retailers will often bargain and might beat BBs prices or offer better services like trade-up plans or free installation.
