I really need one. Does HOUSTON store has any? TIA.

I saw a Elite SC-63 open box for $650 @ BB. Is this a good deal or go for 1522?
SC-1522-K no doubt.

The 1522 is NIB and is the supposed equivalent of an SC-65. So you're getting a better receiver, brand new, for $50 less.
OK. I have Denon 2312ci which I got it from BB ($300) didn't like the sound compared to my old Pioneer 1014THX (sold it for good price). Should I sell 2312i and get 1522 or stick to Denon? By the way, I am using Yamaha RX-720 for music on stereo 2.1 settup.

Kind of OT, but since Fry's sales on Polk speakers were mentioned, I have a couple of fronts transferring in from an out of state Fry's since it was my only option. RTi8-- 158 a piece. I found out though they're open box. Should I bother or is the deal good enough to take the plunge?

I say grab a 1522. I abandoned a Denon 3312 and couldn't be happier.

The Mettawa store shows 7 as of this morning. So if he bought one then there should be 6 left. Inventory is updated after the store closes. Not sure how close Naperville is but that store shows 15 as of this morning.
Where are you seeing the inventory count? I called the Naperville store yesterday at 10:05 am and they said they had 16. I was at the store at 7 pm and they only had 3 left on the pallet all with a build date of 4/2012. I grabbed the best looking box and asked if they had more somewhere else and the guy said no. Did they really sell almost all of them in just a day? Also when I called the Naperville store I asked them to check the Mettawa inventory and they told me the same thing that the Mettawa store was sold out. Never had any problem with Costco before but at least I still found one.

I think we might have just missed each other at the Naperville store!

I was at the store as well around 7 and grabbed one and on the way out I asked how many was left and they said they had 14 in stock. A guy on AVSForum (you?) said that when he left, there was only 13 left.


My wife was a little skeptical about how hot of an item this was even after I sent her the Amazon price due to the inventory count being at 14 when we left. She thought that the velocity should have been higher; she said half of the stock should have been sold already. I said it will be sold by the end of the weekend.

I can't wait to hook it up today. this day is already draggin' in anticipation! LOL!

Looks like a really solid deal to me. Think I've already said on this thread, but my Polk Monitor 70's have sounded incredible through late model Pioneers, especially with their ability to be bi-amped, you're getting a lot of clean discrete power to them. It would appear the RTi's are a step up from the Monitor series.

Glad you got one!
He might have included the display model in the count. I just look at the on hand column for the previous nights inventory, not the total count. Yes, a Costco moves so much inventory that it could've easily sold that many. Especially with the SD effect were if someone posts the inventory count the lurkers won't have to call and will just go. I've had a couple times where I've seen a deal with a couple items left and by the time I decided and went back with my cart, they were gone. Now, If I see a deal I put it in my cart and think about it while shopping. If I don't want it by the time I'm done, I just go put it back.

I didn’t post on AVS yet but we probable did pass each other! No matter what I think this is still a great deal. I upgraded or really downgraded from my aging Marantz SR7001 to a Denon 2112ci that I got cheap when they cleared them out at BB a few months back. I really like the sound of the Denon for HD movies over the Marantz but the Denon kept overheating and going into protect mode when listening to music at reference level or higher. Great little receiver but just not enough power for my setup. So I jumped on this due to the D3 amp. By the time I got home and hooked it all up it was almost 10 and the kids were sleeping so I couldn’t really give it a run. But from the time I did get to play with it the fit and finish is on par with my Marantz and it has way more power than the Denon. I can’t wait to get home tonight and give it a run with some SACD's.
