I think they got one at the sausage factory office[just what I hear].
I think you'll have to pay more than that, probably closer to $795 especially if you want it delivered staight to your pen or office; that sucker is HEAVY. Try liquidprice.com. For California[where I assume you are] your best price price would be a bit over $795.00 is my guess.
Pretty Good reviews though
I bought this unit on the advice of a friend (don't even bother asking me his name, he BEGGED me not to tell anyone!) He had compared it to the Onkyo 989 and Denon 3801. He spent all day one day at his local stereo shop comparing the 3 models.
Unfortunately, while there, a very attractive female salesman started flirting with him big time!! She sat on his lap and said, "You are really cute. I think that cute guys should buy the Onkyo 787. Ugly guys should buy the Denon 3801. Really silly, dorky guys should buy the Onkyo 989." My friend was REALLY attracted to her. Even though his girlfriend was waiting for him at home, he just was in love with this girl. Her name is Amber. She is 5'5", 110 lbs. Long brown hair, green eyes, beautiful smile, she could melt an iceberg. Oh well, I better stop it, I'm getting all excited just thinking about her, and I have never even seen her!! By the way, I hate to change the subject, but who is going to win the Super Bowl guys? Right now, Baltimore is favored by 3 points. The Ravens defense is just devastating. Ray Lewis is a one-man wrecking crew!!
Trent Dilfer has never really impressed me in the past, but I am slowly starting to become a believer. He has only thrown 2 interceptions in 3 playoff games thus far. However, I think the Giants will win the game. My pick - Giants 16 Ravens 13 Kerry Collins will win the MVP and I will never get to meet that beautiful girl at the stereo shop because I am really shy around beautiful girls.
Oh yeah, the Onkyo 787. I popped the top off, and was really impressed. Six huge capacitors, massive aluminum heatsinks, even a built in CD player inside of it! How can you beat that! One thing to mention, however, before anyone rushes out to buy it. I spoke with the people at Onkyo. A lady there, I'll call her Janet Reno, since she begged me not to use her real name, informed me of the manufacturing details of this receiver. It is made in Malaysia in a sweatshop that was rated by Stereophile Guide to Home Theater as being one of the top 5 worst condition sweat shops in the world. The workers get paid 3 cents per hour.
If anyone ever complains they get the ultimate torture - hands tied behind their back while forced to listen to every Backstreet Boys and NSync CD ever made. The workers fear this ultimate torture so much, that many beg for cyanide rather than be faced with 5 hours of this boy band music. I decided to investigate this for myself. I flew to Malaysia and went undercover to see for myself if the conditions were really as bad as Janet Reno claimed they were. To my surprise, the workers were not Malaysian at all!
They were the cast and crew of the hit movie Shaft!! I was totally in shock!! Samuel L. Jackson noticed my incredulous look, and said "What's up? I am just doing this for a little extra money on the side." I fainted and when I woke up, I was back in Boulder, and guess who was at my side. The incredibly beautiful girl I told you about!! My buddy had gone back to the store and told her about me.
Interestingly, she has always gone for the shy, quiet type.
I cannot even tell you what a lucky man I am. We are expecting our third child in March. The only thing I don't like about her is that sometimes, when we go out to eat Mexican Food, she toots a lot!! It's gross, a real turn off.
Thanks for your time, and please buy the Onkyo 787. It is a quality receiver, I promise.
