At this point, we should all know that the receiver is really the hub of a good home theater. Yes, no matter how big you make that HDTV (or theater screen), a receiver is really the brains behind the setup. It also connects everything together, from the set-top, Blu-ray player and TV to the speakers.
A really good receiver can get a little pricey. However, Newegg has a really nice deal on Harman Kardon’s AVR 2600. For today only, you can score this 7.1-channel receiver for just $329.99. This is $470 off the list price and also includes free shipping.
Perfect for a 5.1 or 7.1 setup, the AVR 2600 promises 65 watts per channel and support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Volume, and both Faroudja and Logic 7 processing. There’s also the EzSet/EQ calibration system, which boasts an easy setup process. It also has four HDMI ports, two HD component inputs, and a slot for the optional The Bridge III iPod/iPhone dock.
Just remember that this deal will end today (Monday, February 27, 2012), so you’d better buy it sooner than later—with an emphasis on the sooner. Newegg is putting a cap of “limit 5 per customer” on this purchase, which means that they could sell out!
