Ok, I am hoping, although not holding my breath that someone can answer this for me. I am looking at the HK AVR-325z receiver, which is the refurb model. I see that I can get it for rougly $400-435 US shipped. Now I live in canada, toronto to be exact, and understand that the warranty is "US only." What I'm wondering is that if HK service depots, would accept the receiver for warranty work, if I shipped it to them, versus dropped it off in person. Also, would I have to pay shipping both ways, or just to ship to them only? I can get the refurb in canada, but it would cost significantly more, even after currency conversion, so if I can ship it out, it would save me the hassle of driving, and save me a lot of money, especially if it never needs warranty work. Thanks for any comments or thoughts.
