I would have just PMed you guys, but deal4mama doesn't accept PMs

The 1913 doesn't have the MultEQ XT that the 1713 and 2113 have. The AVS forum has detailed info on the tradeoffs and rates the 2113 a better value in the 1913, 2113 and 2213 group. With new models coming out in a few months, there should be some price movement in the other two.
But if a 1913 has what you need, this is a nice price. Fry's shows the 2112 and 2312 for $400, either of which I prefer over the 1913, but none are available in the four stores within 100 miles. Fry's roulette.

I'm curious why this deal didn't get more love, even with the fact that it requires a Fry's B&M. Is the lower version of Audyssey that much of a deal, or was it the limited inputs that turned people off?
After researching this deal yesterday, now I'm considering the Pioneer VSX-1122-K. There are more inputs and outputs and reviews seem to be positive. It's been $359 on Amazon for a while now.

|Gabe007||Be careful if you pick one up at Fry's. I got one on Friday and told the cashier the box looked as if it had been open before, and she guaranteed that it was never opened since it didn't have an orange sticker (which indicates an item had been opened). I trusted her and went home. When I opened the box at home, nothing was inside its plastic bags, the remote had the batteries in it, there were finger marks on the remote, the manuals were bent, etc. I went back and exchanged it the next day since I was paying for a new receiver, and that was clearly used before. Now, what if there were some missing items? I would be responsible, probably. So just watch out. The employees at Fry's in Manhattan Beach treated me like I was lying about the box being opened before I purchased it, since it didn't have a sticker. Be really careful if the tape looks odd. Other than that, great deal.|

net-tune sounds good, but a $200 iDevice dock??? why not just get a AppleTV for airplay?
but off subject, i'm surprised this Denon isn't getting more love.seems to be at least ~$75 cheaper than anywhere else (if you're lucky enough to be by a Fry's)

All the new Onkyos were just announced at CES a few weeks ago in Vegas!!!
The Prices are VERY aggressive. They have solved the HDMI issues..finally.
The new TXNR626 is the one I am waiting for. All the new Onkyos have a HDL input on the front for streaming with the new ROKU stick which streams wireless. They also added a new system called NET-TUNE that can send Music throughout the house wirelessly!! (think SONOS) Also, if you want AIRPLAY, just add the DS-A5 Dock.
So ready to replace my old Yamaha thats why I have done all this research.

Glad I could help some people out!
When I bought, the manager wasn't available either, so the floor guys actually devised the buy at full price, walk out and back in and ask for a price match strategy. I figured I can always return it if they refused the price match.
But on previous occasions, some salespeople have told me that the $288 price last week on the 1613 was only good on open boxes, both in San Jose and Sunnyvale.
These are good threads for the differences in Denon models. For example, it can cross-convert analog signals or have 2 HDMI outs active at once.
Receivers historically are very sturdy, but recently I've read a lot of problems especially with heat and firmware updates.
I didn't even know that info about DLNA, cool!

What features are you wanting? What speakers? How many subwoofers? Do you care about 3D. Do you care about the video processor. What about MultEQ vs MultEQ XT, dual subwoofer outputs, pre-outs? What sort of warranty are you getting on that open box?
As a matter of fact, can you even return it?

So based on the above link AVR-3312CI is better I guess. If I get AVR-3312CI model(Open box) around $360, is it worth it ?

I bought one from the Campbell store in the San Jose, Calif. area tonight. I went there after going to the Sunnyvale store and was told by a salesperson that they only had open boxes for that price. I had to show the price on my smartphone to him because he did not show the discounted price in his system. They could have had more in stock in Sunnyvale but I don't think this salesperson bothered to look. He told me the Campbell store had them in stock so I went to the Campbell store. At the Campbell store, I spent a long time waiting while the salesperson went looking for an unopened box in the warehouse. He had to go look twice! Eventually, he came out with the one and only new box even though inventory showed 4 available. Then, I had to get a manager's approval to get that price and he happened to be at "lunch". The salesperson told me to place the order online to secure the price and so I did that on the spot at the store. Finally, at the check-out, I had to wait for a manager to adjust the price at the register before I could eventually walk out with a great receiver bought at a great deal.
Advice to others, call to physically check stock and place the order online before going to the store. The salespeople there are clueless!

|88TheDealer88||Hey, all. I'm trying to understand DLNA better. Could I use this to stream video through my wireless router from my laptop to the HDMI outs on the receiver?|

Not to be a thread crapper but this receiver doesn't support audssey XT like 1713, do your research...
