Lowest price I have seen on the RX-V673 and camelcamelcamel.com confirms this.
Please note that Yamaha is clearing out their xx3 series receivers in favor of the recently released xx5 series which, from what I can tell, only adds MHL support. Prices *MAY* go lower on the 673 but I donít see them dropping much more. The 671 during close-out dropped to $300 briefly on Amazon but otherwise hovered around $360 on clearance.

I don't like the color of the remote. Just kidding.

Actually you have a point there, I'm not a big fan of the two-tone enhanced remote either.
The good news? Mine sit's collecting a lot of dust in my remote basket. With the network capability, I control almost all of the functionality of the AVR via smart phone/tablet. There is even a nifty widget for android devices that allows you to control the most important functionality right from your home screen. Take that iPhone!

Looks like another price match between Newegg and Amazon. If that is the case the price on the receiver is sure to jump after today.

It's not selling even at the reduced price. Great reviews though, makes you wonder...

Anyone know if this receiver is bright/warm?
My speaker setup are the old Athena Audition series (F2, B2,C1) which are quite bright.
