Last Edited by cricket702 January 13, 2016 at 06:36 PM
Pioneer Elite VSX-45 for $249.99 + tax.

front page back in Nov. it's back! I was about to pull the trigger on the denon x2200w but wanted to checkout the clearance stuff at magnolia.

ended up seeing this and talked myself into not needing dts-x and atmos at the moment.

anyways, the deal is back at my store.

According to gaijin4life, you can have bb.com price match the instore price.

Are you sure it's not a one store open box deal?

No, it's definitely a widespread deal. I just bought one for this price last week. I returned it because I later found out it's only about 80 watts per channel max output. My speakers need at least 100 to sound crisp. It has Wi-Fi and some cool features but just not enough power for me. At the price I'd be content with it if I had a smaller setup though.

Definitely not an Open Box deal. This was picked up from the back. Pretty happy with this guy. Setup was easy and Interface isn't too bad.

6 HDMI vs 8 HDMI on the X2200W.

Still, nice price.

Decided to pull the trigger on this rather than wait for shipping on the X2200W to come up again. Called BestBuy.com and got them to price match the store price, no problem. So this is being shipped to my house 2 day for free for the $249.98 price.

Good advice indeed! I did the same and saved myself a trip to the local Magnolia store, which is about an hour away.

It took me a couple of calls to get them to place the order, though. The first girl I called kept me on hold for about 45 minutes while she insisted she was waiting for a manager's approval. The second time I called, I was disconnected. The third time, I got through to someone who let me know in no uncertain terms that this was a one-time exception (wink wink).

I used the $20 Best Buy gift card I got from the Nexus Android Pay offer back in December to drop the price even more.

Just came back from the local BB, they had a pile of these with the $250 price tag on top, so it took about 5 mins to pay and get out of there. Brand new, not openbox...

Total BS "one time only" because bb.com will pricematch their own stores and this is not a open box or clearance, but a regular in-store only sale.

I encourage anyone who wants this deal to call BestBuy.com and get them to price match their stores and ship it to you. If you need to, you can tell them you called a number of random BB stores (Puyallup, Portland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, etc) and they all quoted the $249.98 on SALE, not clearance (I did this so you don't have to). Sale supposedly ends on the 16th.

Also, if you need optical out (which this DOES NOT have) for your soundbar, like me, you can get an HDMI splitter with optical out that will pull the audio stream from the HDMI going to your TV and send it to the optical. Amazon has them for about $30.

Yeah, I just jumped in and did it with the phone price match at BB.com (like I said above).

If the Frys Denon deal comes back in stock for shipping before the end of the week (unlikely), I'll just return this one, but if not, this is a pretty hot upgrade for me at $249. After selling my existing receiver with only 4 HDMI and HDMI 1.3, I'll only be out of pocket maybe $25 and get a receiver with 6 HDMI that are compliant with newer specs and have a brand new warranty.

There are literally "mountains" of these units is a few Magnolia's I have been in

If someone is on the fence waiting for the Denon( or whatever unit) to come back on sale
I dont think you have to worry about in store availability of this unit
