They have these at Ecost.com for $528. What a steal.
you can get a new one at 6ave.com for 648.06 with shipping, I ordered one today
The 3802 is for $648. Steve was talking about the 3803.
No, Eric is correct. A brand new 3803 for the price he listed. You ask 6th Ave. for the 3802 at that price. When they tell you that are out, they are willing substitute the 3803 for the same price. I gave a grand a year ago for my 3803. But the past year have been worth the extra $$$ to my ears and eyes...
Sounds kinda risky to me. W/my luck, I'd ask for a 3802 and that's exactly what I'd get.
Yeah, I suppose that would be the case for me too! It's my understanding that 6th Ave has been offering the substitution for a couple of weeks or so...
I wonder what would happen if you called and flat out asked for the deal? "Hi Mr. Telephone Sales person. My name is Mike. I hear you've run out of the Denon 3802 and have been substituting the 3803 for the price of the 3802...can I get that deal? I'm ready to purchase right now." What do you think? or
Mike: Here is the S&V thread where some of the recent talk has been. Maybe you can e-mail or PM one of them and get their story straight from the horses mouth... http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/ide...41C3B31846B8E8
Thanks for the linkage, Chuck. I'm always looking for a good deal.
I took the gamble just now and ordered the 3802. I'll keep my status updated here for anyone who wants to see.
Karl, How does their website work? Do you order the 3802 and HOPE and PRAY that they "automatically upgrade" you to the 3803? When do you find out...when UPS comes? That sounds really risky...I think I'll go put one in my cart and give it a shot.
Hmm, I stuck one in my cart: "In Stock". Went to checkout: "In Stock" I emptied the cart after that...what's the deal? Do you have to do it over the phone?
My understanding is that you order by phone... But to be sure, check with some of the guys at the thread I listed.
Ask for the 3802 and they will offer the 3803 as a substitute. Price was 688 they lowered to 648 plus .06 shipping. My email receipt is for a 3803. They are an authorized retailer. By ordering my 3803 I am guaranteeing the 3804 will be released next week. Just my luck.
Thanks Chuck and Eric. I'll give it a shot and see what happens...man, I hope I don't wind up with a 3802!! ***GRRRRR!*** Their website is screwed up. (Sound&Vision) Tried to register. It's one of those "they mail you the URL" and you've gotta visit the URL to activate type jobbies. Their code is screwy...won't go thru. So I can't ask anyone in that thread what the dealie is.
How would you guys compare the 3803 to the Elite 53TX and the H/K 525. I had narrowed down my choice to those two, but if the 3803 is in the same price range, I may have to consider it. Thanks.
Ok, here's the deal. I called 6ave to check on my order. For my order the 3802 has already been replaced the 3803 and my receipt will show the 3803! Total is $648.06! Unbelievable deal! Eric and Chuck, thanks a TON for mentioning this here.
Wow, that's great news, Karl! Tell us how you did it, please. Did you just call and say "I'd like to order the 3802?" Is there a certain salesman to ask for?
I placed the order online last night, then called this morning inquiring about it. I said that I heard a rumor that all orders for the 3802 were being switched to the 3803 and they verified it for me. I would definately call either to order or to verify the swap after placing an order online for the 3802. Good luck to all!
