    i can't take credit for this deal- but, i just thought that it was so amazing that it warranted its own thread. hope people agree.. don't know if i should post in coupons/bargains- but this part of the forum seems to be frequented a little more often- so there it is.

    I myself just purchased the 3802 from 6ave.com for 699 (695 actually [​IMG]). I must credit Greg Haynes with originally revealing this deal to me in a response to a post I made a few days ago. Once again (and I know more than a few people feel the same way too now) thanks Greg! A deal too good to be true that, for once, is really true!

    Thats a great deal. I paid $675 for the 2802 back in December from a B&M dealer.

    Great dealer! Bought mine back in Jan from Phil for $770 shipped, when everyone else was charging $900-$1100.
    Listen you guys, I want a full report when you get your 3802's. Look on the back and see if they are still made in Japan.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Your guys stole these, what a deal!

    6ave is probably wandering what the hell is going on this week with the sudden rampage of 3802 purchases [​IMG]
    But I'm sure Denon is loving 6ave right now with all the sales.
    Tom I'm sure you going to be HT heaven soon, especially with all that awesome equipment you have coming. Your Klipsch speakers and the SVS sub will shock you.
    Start looking for some cables to go with your new equipment. I think your Klipsch mains are bi-wirable so you might want to play around with bi-wiring your mains.

    Wow! even with the exchange it is cheaper than a 2802 up here.

    There's a rumor going on in a different forum that 6th will throw the shipping in with that $699 if you ask them really nice on the phone. If that is indeed true, that deal is a major barn burner.

    I think I'm the only one who paid full retail for mine ($1200). [​IMG] I just have this "thing" about being able to walk into a store to return an expensive product if it's faulty...

    Well Ron as they explained it to me over the phone at 6ave, with the Denon warranty you can take the product into any Denon dealer and they are obligated to have it taken care of. He said they usually send it back to Denon, but it is not necessary for you to send it back to 6ave.

    Does anyone have anything negative to say about 6 ave?

    My understanding is that being an authorized dealer they would only sell new equipment. I was recently told by a salesperson at another stereo shop that there equipment is usually refurbished. I think he was giving me a line, but I'm curious as to what everyones thoughts are.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Anyone know if this is a permanent price drop, or if this is a special sale?

    I'm debating about calling up tomorrow and getting one, or sticking with my fairly new Newcastle R-956.

    As of Monday the 3802 deal is still good. My price even included shipping!!

    I also got a deal on the monster lock banana tips I needed for my Z2 cables. They shipped them for free as well. Figured I would order them from 6thave as I needed them anyway.

    My receiver is Brand New with full warranty. It has a 30day direct replacement with 6ave, and after that it has the full warranty of two years with Denon.

    I am very impressed.

    The reps work off commission so I recommend my rep - Chris at extension 509.

    They have awesome customer service and are very helpful!!

    Oh joy, my Denon from 6ave.com came today... in terrible condition! Hiss from the left speaker, can't get the surround sound to work, and the remote won't access the setup menu! Perhaps this is why we got them at 699? Grr.... needless to say, I am rather frustrated and am now considering just obtaining a refund and buying the Onkyo 797. Oh well, I never have much luck with good deals [​IMG].

    of course they're going to say its new... i'm going to raise hell if we all get our receivers and they're in poor condition. its understandable if one, maybe two of us get receivers that aren't functioning properly... but, if we wait for a week or so and get a poor product as a whole- i'm going to cause a serious disturbance not only at 6ave, but at denon for allowing 6ave to be an authorized seller.
