Pioneer VSX-830-K 5.2-Channel AV Receiver w/ Bluetooth and Wi-Fi: $250 shipped (Reg. $400)

Amazon offers the Pioneer VSX-830-K 5.2-Channel AV Receiver w/ Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for $249.99 shipped. There are a couple of third party listing for $0.99 less, but I’d go with Amazon direct for extra peace of mind. Today’s deal is also available via Best Buy and B&H. As a pricing comparison, this receiver typically sells for $399.99, but has dropped to the $300 mark during a handful of deals over the past year. We’ve never seen it priced this low before. Amazon shoppers and AV Tech Reviews both rated it positively.
