Alfonzo, you didn't indicate whether you were in the U.S., but if you are I'd strongly suggest that you consider the Onkyo 818 factory refurbished unit from Accessories4less , which is a great bargain at about $800. This is the current model with the latest features, including the top Audyssey MultEQ XT32 version. These should be at least as reliable as brand-new units.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
