    What do you think of a Denon 3805 receiver refurbished by Denon? Should I consider it?

    My thinking is that because Denon refurbished it, it should be clsoe to new again. I am still going to compare the 3805 to other receivers though.

    That is the dilemma, brand new 2805 or refurbed 3805......difficult choice. After listening to both today I thought the 3805 sounded better, the extra power was noticeable. I think that as long as it was refurbed by Denon, and I still have a warranty, the 3805 might be the choice.

    Warranty is 90 days on refurb I believe. 180 if you buy with a CC.

    IF it is refurbed by Denon, why is the warranty only 90 days?

    Bummer, maybe I will just buy the 2805, I'll still be happy with it since it did sound great. Now I need to think about this some more.

    Dakmart has a B stock 3805 for $850, I can buy it new from an authorized dealer for $900.

    Has anyone bought any refurbished equipment with only 90 days warranty?

    I haven't found it online for that price from an authorized dealer, I found it locally. When I am ready to buy I am going to bring cash and see how much they are will to work with me ($800 max), otherwise I will buy the 2805, I need to have a full warranty, especially paying this type of money in case anything goes wrong.

    "B" Stock scares me. . . I bought several "B" stock Pioneer ELITE pieces over the years from a reputable Pioneer dealer with mixed results. . . All worked OK but some looked more like they were well used more like almost worn out. . .

    I know that ecost.com offers extended warranties. I added one to cover my factory refub. Denon 2805. A two year extended warranty cost me $65.00.
