Decent price, but it's clone (TSR-7790BL) was $439 last November at Costco. I think there is still more room to go down. Typically the receiver from the previous year that has the 7.2 preamp outs will hit $400-$425 just before the new models come out. I'm still rocking a RX-V867 which carried me through the 1080p era. The RX-V779 looks to be my 4k era receiver when it hits $400.

This is an excellent deal. Almost making me think to send my TSR-5790 back to Costco I got for $379. Decisions decisions.

I got the same 5790 deal from Costco and it was working great. but about a month ago, my HDMI ARC audio and command link between the receiver and TV stopped all of a sudden. Not sure which system updated, but I can't get it to work again. I'm considering swapping as well to see if it will fix, but would like to see the lower deal from Costco again as well.

That's the best part of Costco....returns are simple and easy. I don't envision that I could use all the features that this deal gives me per se unless it's $399.

The replacement for this one is due out in June, it's to be RX-V781BL. That I know of, only one Costco near me still has the TSR-7790BL, which is where I bought it from. It's great overall, but would love to have gotten it for $430 or less. That Costco and a closer one still have the TSR-5790 version at $379 as of last week. The replacement for the lower version is due out very soon, I thought this month. RX-V581BL is that model #.

If anyone sees a lower price at Costo, please post it. I'll try to do a price match. By the way, does anybody know what the return period is on receivers at Costco? It's not listed under the 90-day period, so wondering if anybody's tried returning after 90 days.

nod I thought so, just checking other's experiences.

As long as that's the case, I'd rather buy these types of things at Costco even if it would be cheaper bec no tax online like this would be for me.

General note to this deal:

Also note that this has pre-outs, so if you ever decided it wasn't enough oomph, you could add a separate amp. I've got a 5-channel one, but doubt I'll bother. This sounds good enough. A few things this is missing from my desire to cover all the bases and wishes are: phono input (don't have one so don't care, but the upcoming model has it), Dolby Atmos and DTS:X (both on upcoming model), and a plug to connect my subwoofer and/or a fan so when this turns on those are turned on with it and when this turns off those are off and take no power. There's 12v trigger(s), so I'll have to see if I can work with that.

I just jumped on the jbl 590 deal the other day. Any idea what a good receiver to use with them is, the Denon x4200 deal is dead. Any comparable receivers from Yamaha or others? Currently using a Pioneer 1121-k and want something with more power and atmos

Not sure what the price of the x4200 deal was since it's not bringing up any results. Onkyo is the only company I see that has all possible new features that came out last few years, including Atmos, DTS:X, HDR(HDMI 2.0a), 4k(HDCP 2.2), phono, BT, wifi, and ethernet. Their TX-NR646 and TX-NR747 have all that, but I'm not sure what features of the Denon you really wanted (7 channels PLUS Atmos channels, pre-outs, detachable cord, etc).

Again, what price was the deal on the x4200?

I agree, but I do have the TSR-7790BL from Costco @ $439 and glad I got it then.

Yes, prices on everything go down in time, but I get to enjoy it now at a very good price. Smilie
