Great deal indeed! I also just picked one up, after keeping track of prices for about a month. I had been considering Denon or Onkyo, and although Onkyo gives more features for the buck, some reviewers feel Denon has slightly better sound, particularly for stereo playback.
Also note that this model is least expensive that will do DLNA (network) gapless playback of FLAC files via a firmware upgrade (don't know if the one I get will be up-to-date on the firmware or not). Higher model Denons (and Marantz) can do this, but Onkyo or Yamaha, no. A couple of other advantages over comparable Onkyos: Apple Airplay, Audyssey MultiEQ (instead of Audyssey 2EQ).
