Dang this is tempting. I was looking at getting the STRDN1060 7.2, because it's only $400 and has two hdmi outs which I would really like. But for $200, this is a good deal. Anyone know what the differences between this and 1060 would be, besides the obvious dual hdmi out zones?

Grabbed one for $168 as well. I was possibly going to grab the 5.2 Onkyo that Best Buy has for $199 on BF, but can't pass on the warehouse price. Thanks for the tip.

I purchased the 750 version of this receiver a year ago for the same price... Was a little less intuitive to set up compared to a Denon or Only, but once it was done it has performed very well... Highly recommended...

For those who are too late for a warehouse deal, or don't care for the warehouse deal and want to avoid the sales tax by purchasing a new one:

You guys can certainly spend your money however you want....but with a home theater receiver, I'm not sure there's more value in saving the $32 than there is in getting a brand new one with a warranty (and a year's extension to that warranty with an Amex or other credit cards). While I'm generally not very concerned with warranties (I've owned very few items that have ever failed), a home theater receiver is a notable exception. These things get daily use and they get hot. I have a buddy who bought a brand new Pioneer Elite receiver from BB (so we're talking a high end receiver) -- and within the first 30 days the volume just started automatically decreasing every minute or two until it was inaudible. It's the one electronics item that I feel like is prone to a pretty high failure rate. Again, you spend your money and I'll spend mine -- I get that -- but I don't think it's worth buying a receiver used. Just my $0.02.

I completely agree with you if we were talking about a very expensive receiver. At $168, I'll take my chances since it does represent about a 15% savings, but I completely think your argument is valid in regards to many situations.

I'd consider biting but I have a 25 off 250 Best Buy offer on my Amex. Going to combine this with the Kindle Fire deal to reach the threshold. Getting Best Buy reward points is also a plus, only if Amazon didn't charge me tax.

I actually canceled my order. I read a recent review that this receiver doesn't play well with the Playstation 4 Pro so yeah, gonna wait until HDR is ironed out a little more. Was hoping this would be a cheap future proofing.
