WTB: Looking for a Receiver for a third system

Hey guys, I have been bidding on used receivers on e-bay and thought what the heck, I will see if there is anything here.

I am looking for a receiver or even an integrated amp (maybe a preamp) UNDER $100 shipped to me for my 3rd system in my den. I have a "compact" Kenwood 60 watt/ch system already and looking to upgrade a bit if I can find something at the right price. Not in any hurry but am actively bidding on things.

Absolute Requirements are:

1. Remote control
2. Good condition
3. A/B speakers and binding posts
4. Preamp out (main channels)
5. At least 80 watts/channel (of course, does not apply to preamps...can go down on this if high current design).
6. Sound pretty good...at least better than run of the mill cheapo stuff.

Stereo receivers OK. AVRs OK. ProLogic OK.

Please keep in mind that I can get a refurb Denon 295 shipped for $99 and Denon 395 (80 watt multiroom) shipped for $129....and that this is a third system. Local would be in NoVA/DC area to avoid shipping to zip 22030.

Let me know what you got.
Thanks

System 2: LSi15 w/db840, Marantz SR8400, Rotel 1080, RM6800 (C&S), Sony X2020ES

System 3: LSi7, Yamaha SW215, Music Hall Maven, Music Hall MMF CD25 w/627opamps

System 4: RTi100, Harman Kardon AVR 230, Panasonic DVD

    Hey doro.....yeah I will likely go for one of the Denons if nothing else is more appealing....I guess I am not certain that it will sound that much better than my Kenwood ( vintage 1995)...

    Christ, no joke man, $99 Denon? That's a LOT of 'requirements' for $100 shipped.

    Cheers,

    Share the wealth, where'd you find those deals?

    At the risk of everyone buying the inventory, I will share anyways with the polksters..... www.ecost.com. These are stereo receivers....not AVRs...although they have plenty of those there too for a bit more....

    Ecost isn't anything new around here, but I'm sure the forum appreciates your huge sacrifice for them.

    i might have to burn some inventory to have a cheap office system until I can afford the full tube setup...

    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    yea polkates...I can't quite tell if doro was trying to be offensive with the "huge sacrifice" thing but things on text can be easily misinterpreted so I interpreted in a most positive light possible....
