HOLY CRAP!!! what a deal.. that is an insane price for a great receiver. after owning the 701 for a few months now, i am completely satisfied with the ONKYO brand name.
the 501 has less wattage and is not quite as versatile with inputs/outputs, but still an awesome entry receiver for someone in a small room or dorm. i almost wish i had a need for a second receiver just so i could take advantage of this great offer.
anyone out there that was looking to get the denon 1604/1804, or the HK AVR130/AVR230, or the yamaha RXV450/550, or even the sony ES and pioneer elite entry level receivers, might wanna give a look at this deal.. almost tooo good to pass up.
EXCUSE ME, ARE YOU THE SINGING BUSH??
