    I would rate very good. It has a nice balanced sound that is not too sharp but with enough dynamics to satisfy. BTW, the 3930CI is 1080P unconverter while the 3910 is 1080i. Makes a difference in value. Both are worth something because of SACD.

    My haul this week so far:

    Today $56
    Yorkville YSM-1 Studio Monitors $12 GW
    Really almost passed these up 2x- I saw York.. and walked off. Luckily I went back and pulled off a cover, I knew right away they were something special. Built buy API Canada for Yorkville there are some raving reviews online regarding these speakers.

    Wow, at those prices I would be buying all day long. In So Cal, BPC receivers are in the $40-60 range. Not cheap enough to be worth flipping.

    You are talking to the wrong person about that. I am an enabler, lol. I picked up a Sony AVR like yours for $30 and I felt like I hit the jackpot. Mine is the 110 wpc version so not as nice as yours although it is a year or two newer.

    Don't confuse Yorkville with Yorx. Yorkville was a Canadian pro sound manufacturer. A lot of their PA speakers punch well above their weight class. I never saw a studio monitor from them, but you can bet it wasn't just ad gimmick, that was the market they were designed for.

    Edit: I said was. I should have said is. Check out their latest offering on Musician's Friend.

    Very nice. I'm worried about your car seats though! You need a moving blanket to protect them from those sharp corners... Like others have mentioned those prices are great.

    I try not to buy any unneeded extras but at those prices I wouldn't have been able to say no. Great buys!

    I picked up a Doors LA Woman 1st issue at local record store for $6 yesterday. You probably got a little better deal.

    I paid half of that, but you did really well. I'm actually surprised a shop would let one with good cellophane go so cheap. That's a $35 - 50 record. Of course you didn't mention condition.
