Back one more time, Fry's Electronics has the Denon AVR-X3200W available for $498 with today's email promo code.

The add states in-store and online while supplies last, but I only got available for in-store pickup, YMMV.

Giving this a TU, simply for the post. Its a very nice receiver (I own one), but this deal has been going on for months now and seems to be a regular sale at least couple of times a month for a while now. I think I got mine back in about February and continue to see it listed at Fry's. I would at least wait until free ship option is available, since many do not have a physical store close. I have a local store, but had mine shipped and saved a 30 mile RT drive.

But once these are depleted, the deal will disappear. The same happened with many other Fry's lines, like the JBL ES80's. I bought a total of 6 (3 pairs) at different times, one pair from Amazon as well, because they would go on sale like this on a constant basis for many months @$99 each. But now you almost never see them and if you do, its best price is about $119 each.

Grab the deals when they are hot, because certain ones do disappear. and I think this will be one of those items. Smilie

Sorry if you were the one who already answered this, but how long after the new receivers launch (x3300, x4300) do you think it will be before fry's has them on these sales?

Think we'll see the 3200/4200 for shipping again from fry's?

Hi,

I have been shopping/buying many receivers since just before the holiday season, 2015. I have done a lot of research on features for may different applications. I do 90% music, so many new style features, such as the HDCP 2.2 which is specifically aimed at 4K content and such.

So there are many factors to consider when looking for any given receiver application.

If you do not need the features, such as the HDCP 2.2 and only plan to use the 1080p formats and such, your choices are wide open with many choices available.

But strangely enough, the pricing of receivers have been quite confusing. I have mainly checked on the Yamaha lines, since I have been a Yamaha junkie for decades. My last Yamaha was a much older version, with no modern features, such as HDMI, BT, etc.

But after seeing a lot of added features and a very low price point, I began with the Yamaha RX-V677. Then, due to mainly price points and even more features, I now have this Denon 3300w, Yamaha RX-V779 (the Costco $430 special) and just picked up a Yamaha RX-A750, because open box was like $379 (ballpark .. I don;t have all the specific pricing at hand).

But in all the research, I would have assumed that the older version would have dropped significant;y in pricing. But that has not been the case. Many of the older lines have actually went back to their older non-sale pricing.

So the best advice is first research your wants/needs. Find the receivers you are interested in and then start your "hunt". Many different receivers are going on sale at any given time. I also just purchased 2 RX-V677, used/like new condition, but got them simply due to price...$179.99 from Amazon .. an incredible price for this unit.

Bottom line, don;t expect great price drops on previous versions, because that will not necessarily happen in many cases and you can get the latest versions at the same, or even sometimes below the previous versions price.

Again, do some good research on every unit based on your exact needs/wants. This differs greatly for each individual. Then look often for special sales, that constantly come along. You will quickly learn, by research, what is a truly great price. Like when those RX-V677's came along for $179, I jumped on them, because I already knew all the current pricing and knew that was a great deal. And so do many other people and those kinds of deals may last an hour or less (sometimes only 10 minutes in some cases).

Even if unsure, I recommend buy first (place the order) then do fast research. If you find it not to be a great deal, you can always cancel the order within an hour or so, but at least assured a unit if it is a fantastic deal.

Hope this helps. Smilie

Thanks for the reply. I've narrowed it down to x3200, x3300, or x4200. I might hold out for the x3300 if they will also drop to $500. Any idea how long after the x3300 launches it will be before fry's has them on sale for $500? Is it usually 6 months after launch?

The new lines differ, but have seen them drop to the previous version pretty fast this last year.

Now, keep in mind this is usually only on the "lower end" models, for example in the Yamaha line (I keep up with those being a Yamaha junkie), we are talking the lower end series (when I say lower end, they are not cheap junk, just the most affordable for the general users).

I just checked on the Yamahas yesterday and the 677 was sitting at $549 on Amazon, while the latest version, the 679 was sitting at $399. Make any sense? Not to me, but there it is.

Again, since you have some picked out, simply research and watch for any sales. Best time is typically around the holidays, but they can have special deals at anytime during the year as well.

Just keep looking and hope for a special sale. Smilie
