    Jeff,

    So how the heck is yours shipping already? I ordered on the 12th. [​IMG] Did you order over the net? I hear those are shipping early.

    I ordered mine on Nov 17, and I'm being told it's 21 business days until it ships as they are on backorder. That's over 4 calendar weeks!!

    [​IMG] Gee, that really stinks. [​IMG] I hope I got in before that set of orders. But ya'know, if you think about it, you're still getting a $1K receiver for $650. That's a SCREAMING good deal. Not a lot of room to bitch. Even though I sure want to. [​IMG]

    For you guys who got yours already:

    Did you get a warranty registration card? I didn't see one in my paperwork. Maybe Denon just doesn't use them. (The warranty itself says all you need is a copy of your receipt to get it serviced.) Just curious, though.

    I saw this deal on another forum - ordered it online on 11/15. I got an email saying it would be 21 days but UPS delivered it on 11/18. I'm out of town this week so I haven't seen it yet but will know tomorrow if it's actually a 3803.

    Mike: Denon stopped using warranty cards a while back. The receipt is the key...

    so basically the warranty must be transferable then if you need only the receipt?

    I haven't read the entire warranty lately but typically it would need to say it's transferable to be so. Warranties are legal documents and if it doesn't grant certain rights (such as being transferable), the rights can't be claimed...

    Thats funny because mine is set up the same way and in the same mode and will not work with just the component cable from the receiver to the T.V. I was told by a denon' service tech that it will not work with just component and that you will need either a S-video or Composite run to the T.V along with the component cable to OSD.

    You must of got a New Improved 3803.

    Man, the choices just keeping popping up. I know Mike keeps telling me to stick with the Denon 3803, but I can't help but keep comparing [​IMG]

    What about the HK DPR 1001 all digital? I know Mike's opinion of all digital receivers, but what about anyone elses?

    The 45tx is lookign damn appealing right now.. can be had for $650 with warranty from audiogon.

    Anyone order a 3802(3) from 6th Ave in the past couple days?

    I have a 3802 and I'm quite happy with it....and by the looks of things I can dump it on ebay for about what I would have to pay to get the newer 3803 from 6th Ave. Well, almost anyway...but I don't mind upgrading to the 3803 for ~$100 or so...

    Hope this deal lasts a bit longer....
