Went to Circuit City today, looking for speakers for my old Kenwood receiver since my 18 year old Advents finally gave up a while back. I've always liked the sound of Polk speakers and found a set of M20s for $100 each on sale. They aren't the best, but with the deal I found, I can't afford much more right now. Anyway... on with the deal. While I was looking around (mostly waiting for a drone to grin/nod to my questions) I drop in the "high end" sound room. I notice a Sony STR-DE897s (silver) reciever sitting there. Ending in 7, I knew it was an old model... new model is an 898, but the price said $199. I know the 898 retails for $400. Upon further review, I see that it is indeed an older model, open box, last one left deal. Open box still carries full manufacturer warranty, and the City Advantage plan ($50/5 years) would cover anything else. My question... would you buy it? Even with the extra plan, I'm saving $150 over the current model, and the 897 is rated at 110w x 7, instead of 100 x 7 for the 898. I know 10 watts doesn't make the much difference, but still, it's more. sorry for the rambling-ly long post, and thanks in advance for any opinions.
