Gibbys B-stock has "sale ends Nov-27". I don't know the price of B-stock products though so I can't tell what the actual sale is. Anyone say if there are good deals?

Someone else can confirm, because I'm relatively new to shopping for receivers, but I think gibbys sale is always ending "today". Yesterday it said sales end nov26th.

Sony STR-DN1080 is highly recommended in online reviews. But I'm seeing less enthusiasm in forums when compared to other mid-range AVRs, like Denon AVR-X2300W, or maybe I'm mistaken. If sound quality is the main thing I'm after which one you experts recommend? Or will I head/feel the difference? Thanks!

Yeah. I've been watching the "sale ends" dates for the last couple of days. It seems they keep adjusting by one day. I hope these sales continue to be offered this way because I will eventually pull the trigger. I've already spent too much on other things on Black Friday.

Yeah, and 3 days ago, it said "sale ends Nov 24th". I woudn't pay much attention to that date, they put an end date just to push you to buy.

Well, that's for you to decide but read this review:

https://www.whathifi.com/features/denon ... ich-better

The Sony is rated higher than the 2400, which is rated higher than the 2300 it replaces. But sometimes, the devil is in the details. For example, the Sony has Chromecast support built-in and better Bluetooth, but the Denon has 2 more HDMI inputs. Only you can determine which features are more important to you.

TBH, I didn't do much comparing this time around. Last year I got my dad set up with the X3300. He loves it, I love it. The X4400H has a bit more power and extra channels that will come in handy for my setup. I would have considered a Marantz alternative as I love the sound my old Marantz puts out - but this is primarily a movie-watching area where Denon holds the edge. That, and I'm not the biggest fan of the tiny screen Marantz is using in their new designs. Not to mention a Marantz equivalent was more expensive this past weekend.

Guess I'll just wait and see if they lower prices for BF.
Price has dropped to $649, I decided to wait but good deal for those who need a quality receiver now:

Just in case anyone is interested, I had purchased the Sony STR-DN1080 from Gibby's (via Amazon) for $498, but after looking over the B-Stock on their site, I decided to cancel the Sony and get a B-Stock Denon X3300. I was $649 on the site, plus $140 for a 4-year warranty and $12 delivery fee, (total of $905 including tax) I negotiated it to $800 all in. My deciding factor was the fact that my primary and surround speakers are 4-ohm, which I discovered the Sony doesn't support (I know it will work at low volumes, but it was specifically recommended by Sony not to do it, so I decided not to tempt the E-Gods). I also liked the many positive reviews on the Denon. Ultimately, it was about $240 more for what I consider to be a better unit with a much better warranty.

Cheers.
