My receiver fizzled out on me yesterday. Rather than fix it I think I'll just pick up a new one. I'm looking possibly for either the Sony STR-DA555ES or Onkyo TX-DS777. Does anyone know where I can get one cheap? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanx.

Soundcity.com has excellent pricing on Sony products. Got my DB940 for just over $400. Quick delivery and great pricing. Do a search to see others opinions...

I got my Sony STRDE835 at Service Merchandise for $250. [It was marked down from 350 to 300 and then came with a $50 jewelry gift certificate.]

A month later I still saw it at Circuit City for $400.

I think the Sony 555ES and Onkyo 777 that he's looking for are a tad higher up than the 835 *grin*

I bought my Onkyo 575x from www.onecall.com. They are an authorized distributor and they also pricematch for me. Knocked off a good chunk and gave me $15 FedEx shipping for 2 day delivery. Might want to look into www.jcpenney.com for their current promo for 30% off $150 or more. CR8 is the code. good luck.

I just recently bought the SONY STR555ES from an online store called Speed and Sound. The link for it is http://shop.store.yahoo.com/sstheate...trda555es.html
They garuntee the best price and I got mine for only $618 ($1000 retail) so check it out. I love my Sony ES but check audioreview.com for other opinions.

Call Joe at Sound City 800-888-5343, ext 708. Don't be shy about negotiating prices.
