The Yamaha V581/ TSR-5810BL refurbished is on sale for $229 today at frys. Nice reviews not sure of the yamaha hierarchy, but it's probably one step above, and seemed like a decent price if you can deal with Frys refurb.

Thanks for this info!

How bad is it dealing with Fry's refurbs if there are any issues? I also noticed that they don't sell any extended warranties on the refurbs.. Also, what's the warranty on their refurbs?

It's been mixed reviews for frys refurbs. On one hand, they sometimes sell factory refurbs/returns which depends on the factory. They also sell their own returns which are not really checked out, and is more hit, and miss. I picked up a denon factory refurb a few years back, and it's still working fine.

If I was putting together a new system, I would have given this one a shot. Gets good reviews for 2-channel music, decent power, 2 sub outs, and everything I'd use. The things missing I haven't needed for any of my builds (2nd monitor out, 5+ inputs, etc).

Yesterdays coupon deal. Go to frys, and sign up for their coupon codes. Deal could come back around like many of their deals do.

I can confirm that this is refurbed by Yamaha and with 1 year full warranty.

Any reviews on this? Any real downsides to it being 5.1? I mean I only plan on using 1 sub but if I change that what's wrong with a splitter? Subs use internal amps don't they?
