Depends what features you need. I won an auction yesterday for an AVR235 at $261, but that's about the lowest I've seen - usually $280-305. For me the 235 is perfect because: a) I don't need the increased power of the 5xx series, since I'll be using an external amp, and b) some of the newer features on the 235, particularly AV Sync Delay, are important to me.

With the bookshelves the 235 will be more than sufficient. Keep in mind that HK's power ratings are modest - they don't play the numbers games that some of the other manufacturers do. I've also found their build quality to be the same across the entire model line, whereas Denon and Yamaha tend to 'cheap out' on the less expensive models. You should not need added power for your system. Mine is going into a new HT/music room with power-loving Def Tech's all around. I had a much bigger budget to play with for this system, but I still think the 235 is great bang for the buck.

whats the AV sync delay do for you ?

bustertn... when you're doing video processing such as upconverting and/or running video longer lengths (like to a projector), you can end up with the audio signal being slightly ahead of the video signal and not in sync. The AV sync delay creates a delay of the audio signal on certain sources (adjustable, up to 125ms I believe) to get things together. Since I'm upconverting DVDs to a 720p signal and sending them through a 30' DVI cable to a projector, AV sync delay is important to me.
