For those of you on the left coast, Good Guys is having their annual anniversary sale. They got a lot of discounts going right now (including $500 off flat panel TVs), but the biggest bargain that they've got going right now is half off on the Yamaha RX-Z1 and RX-V3300 receivers.

That means that the RX-V3300 is selling for $800 and the RX-Z1 is going for $1400. Obviously, that also means that those models are getting discontinued and Yamaha's got replacement models due soon. Whether you buy the closeout model now, or wait for whatever Yamaha's got on deck with the new models, it's a great time.
