    Charles, no, that has never happened to me. Sorry to hear about the inconvenience. Try another one. [​IMG]

    Yep, twice.

    My sub (Paradigm PW-2200) came without a powercord. The dealer replaced it no problem the same day.

    One of my mains (PSB Image 5T) came without a set of feet and spikes. The installer brought them out the next day.

    Hey Matt,

    Yes, new and purchased from Tweeter.

    I checked the box right away as I always do to see if it might be a returned product. It looks like a fresh box, never opened before.

    The frustration here is it was necessary to order this model from their Phila. warehouse and ship it my local Tweeter location. I'll probably have to wait till next week to get a replacement.

    Chas: It will be worth the wait. The Denon is a great unit.

    Charles, as far as I know, Tweeter doesn't sell refurbished products. They, of course, sell open-box units. In any event, it's always safe to check the box. Let us know when you get the new unit and give us a review. [​IMG]

    My 1600 came from Tweeters and it is a fine player for progressive DVD.

    I am sure this is obvious but open the next one in the store.

    Maybe one of Denon's employees was having a bad day or just doesn't care. If so hopefully Denon can track them down.

    They don't use machines to pack the boxes do they?

    Happy viewing.

    Problem resolved. I took the demo remote and power cord.
    Joe..
    Thanks for the input. No. I am sure they don't use machines to pack those boxes. Unfortunately, people become machine like in these type of assembly line positions. Perhaps when they packed the box, they were distracted.
    Keith..
    You are correct. Sometimes it is best to open the darn box at the shop. I should have done that.
    Steven..
    I tried to get Tweeter to deliver. They told me call Pizza Hut. [​IMG]
    Gary..
    I just connected the piece and off the top with about 10 minutes of listening and viewing, it appears to be a nice player. Redbook sounds very, very good. DVD-A is better then the previous player I listened to. Video output needs to be determined later as there is a bunch of light in the room with my XBR.
    I almost bit on the 9000 unit. Close but no cigar. To much money considering the equipment you can buy for that type of cash flow.
    Back to work and thanks for the comments.
