Here's a good one....

A good friend has been receiver shopping for a few months and hit the motherload yesterday. He bought a Denon AVR-3808CI yesterday at our local Best Buy for $699. Yes. $699. That's $1,000 off MSRP. It was an open box special, but all of the parts were there and not even unwrapped. In absolutely perfect shape, as far as he can tell.

Now if I can just convince him to buy some Axioms....

And no, they didn't have any more at that price. I'd have already been there if there were. ;\)
