Great! Can I put my name on the list for your next give away? ;)

And on the AMEX card, I believe you would end up with a 3 year warranty for that unit. I buy all my warrantied items with one of my AMEX cards and it double the manufacturers warranty up to a year. Then any longer warranties, it only adds 1 additional year [link].


I didn't know that. I'll have to read the Amex info again. Thanx. Still, a 3 year warranty isn't bad, just for using Amex. My Master Card does this too.

Yes, you can add your name to the list. You'll have to pay for shipping, but if you need one, I'll keep you in mind. I usually find folks in my neighborhood that want them. I hate to just throw away a good AV receiver.

On the subject of getting a 7.2 and just setting it up for 5.1, I will disagree slightly with the crowd here. You are paying for the unused circuits and amplifiers, not only in dollars, but in heat radiation, power consumption, and unnecessary complexity. Go for the 5.1. Also note that certain AVR, DVR, HDTV combinations have some documented problems on this site.

Good points, bdmarine. I agree with you, especially in the power consumption.

If you don't go 7.1 but do 5.1 instead, most receivers will use those two unused amplifiers for the B speakers. Now you may not have anything hooked up to the B speaker terminals, either, but the amps can be used for another purpose.
