    Well, that's the risk of getting a Denon or Yamaha from an unauthorized dealer. You did save a bundle by purchasing through ETronics versus your local boutique, so you're bound to have some loss in service. It sucks and I feel for you because I've been in the same spot. I wanted a Denon but couldn't find anywhere to purchase it online at a reasonable price. I could find plenty of unauthorized dealers willing to give be a big discount, but this was exactly what I was afraid of.

    Felix,

    Are you saying that you still haven't received the repaired receiver? The first e-mail listed was dated Apr. 2. Did you get it or are you just venting about the bad service communication (or lack thereof)?

    if they continue to jerk you around, ask for a refund and file a dispute with your credit card company. Then do business with an authorized dealer.

    Thats why I never buy online if it is more than a few hundred $$$. You never know when these things tank on you and you would be spending the time you could be spending enjoying your gear on e-mail/phone etc. Down with e-tailers. I like B&M stores that allow me endless auditionioning of gear and have good return policy. With e-tailers, once the money is out of your pocket there are no guaranty of what you will get into.

    Felix,

    Have you tried calling them? I've had great luck with them in the past. I ordered a Pronto which totally died after 3 months. I just called them up and they agreed to ship me a new one.

    Guys,

    The last thing Felix needs right now are a bunch of "I told you so" responses. This isn't a B&M vs. Online shopping thread. This could just as easily occured with a B&M shop.

    Not exactly true. If a B&M store stops replying you can go there in person and raise hell. When an etailer stops responding, you are screwed.

    That's a silly statement Camp. At least you know where the retailer is. Denon stands behind their "authorized dealers" and is very good about repairs and concerns if you purchase the product from them.
    But I agree that hindsight is 20/20. For the non-authorized dealer bit from Denon, you sure don't see alot of these types of complaints from on-line customers. Even with the Denon 5800's purchased online, Denon is allowing the upgrade.

    6TH AVE is a great authorized dealer. And call your credit card company and fill out the paperwork, then the BBB.[​IMG]

    Of course, you realize that thousands of transactions have gone on, from online retailers, without issue. Six for me personally. So, I still know nothing of the "danger," other than the danger of B&Ms to my wallet.[​IMG]
    But, at least, I know to avoid etronics. Don't give up, Felix.

    Not true, call 6th ave and get a low quote. E-mail me if you have any questions. But just call and get their real price.

    First of all Felix, I really am very sorry to hear of what happened with your Denon...and I'm really pissed off at the treatment you received. I'm really hoping that etronics is a good company and this this is an unfortunate situation with them. I'm not the legal expert, but, if I were in your shoes, I'd probably contact the credit card company now. First of all, they would be able to give you advice in the matter. Secondly, the ball would be in etronic's court. I don't know how these things work, but if it is as I imagine and the credit card company transfers the money back into your account, I would try to shut them out of the picture as much as possible. In other words, even if they suddenly became responsive with the return of your Denon, I wouldn't accept it unless required to do so. I'd keep the money instead and try to find a dealer, online or otherwise, that I felt more confident about. You might also try to get through to a higher up at etronics and explain how you've been treated in this matter. In the past, when I've done this, matters usually, but not always, get resolved immediately to my satisfaction. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
