Wanted AV Receiver

Hello all,
My son is looking for an AV Receiver that is in very good shape and has 5 HDMI inputs that all work. Remote would be nice as well, I have been pretty lucky more than once here on Polk Forum buying used Receivers so why not see what is out there and if you have something laying you can part with for a kid in college on limited income let me know please.

Thanks

    If he already has an AVR, have you considered an HDMI switch as an option? It will be much cheaper and I find the switches useful.

    Yea Ivan if he still has the one I sold him the monoprice hdmi switchers work great, and grab a refurbished harmony remote to power it all. All in much less than a new receiver...

    He has nothing trying to build something. I have a set of speakers I will give him.

    Der duh der, I missed the "V" part of your request and the requirement for HDMI ports. I'm dumb.

    Oh well, I'm going to leave those links there because they represent a nice value for anyone looking to get into stereo stuff.
    Got Dayens?

    I don’t have one I can send you, but you could look for a Yamaha RX-c665 if you could do with one less HDMI input. Very reliable, and can actually drive some (relatively) difficult speakers with (relative) ease.generally go for $50-150 for beaten up models to pristine. I’m not looking to get rid of mine, so just a suggestion.
    2 channel
    Speakers: Mission 770 Freedoms
    Integrated amp: Technics SU-v75 and matching tuner
    CDP: Technics SL-PC20
    Cables: Monoprice, Monster, Acoustic Research, and a few generic ones
    TT: Technics SL-3200, direct drive
    Cartridge: Shure M97xE

    Pc gaming setup
    Receiver/amp: Yamaha RX-V665
    Computer: Lenovo g50 (soon to be upgraded to a Dell Precision 690 which is far from stock!!)
    Interconnects: Amazon basics HDMI, Acoustic Research HDMI, Monoprice speaker cables
    Speakers: Boston Acoustics CR75s

    Random equipment on standby:
    Onkyo TX-v940, JBL woofers and tweeters, single Klipsch KG .5, Yamaha guitar amplifier, Peavey Rage 158 guitar amplifier, Kicker comp 12” subwoofer, single Bose 802 series II, a whole bunch of 1”-3” full range drivers, Infinity Crescendo 3007s (on sale), Polk LSi25s

    You don't tell her you read the manual, and you tell her you know what the problem is, and you fixed it, because that what men do, fix things
    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.
    Seen somewhere on AudioKarma (I think)

    heck I'd keep that for myself and give him my old Yamaha Rx-v1800 ....

    He needs 5 HDMI ports. heck if I didn't just fork over money for the OPPO I'd be all over this Larry. :D

    I also have a VSX-30. I will send pictures a bit rough on the top cover.

    Same deal as the Onkyo.

    No crackling noises.
