I agree, it's a good time to buy a previous gen Onkyo. eCost has it for $150:

Check out the Onkyo refurbished deals at -- shipped with a 1 year warranty for $170! The 505 is being phased out, so now (mid-2008) is a great time to get one.

This is a great A/V receiver for the price. I picked it up off ebay for around $250. The Audyssey 2EQ offers one of the best auto-calibration processes in this price range and WORKS PERFECTLY with a 5.1 setup.
