    What is the best price you've seen on a Denon 2802?

    I'm buying one in the near future and would like to know what's a reasonable price I should try to bargain it down to. Do you think it's possible to get it under $1000?

    The prices I have seen for the 2802 Are around $1300CDN try for under a $1000? maybe but not likely being a newer model and all. This is a online shopping Site out of Quebec ..

    They are very close to what you will find for prices around Canada

    I have seen a 2802 go for $1099 out here on the east coast, and the 3802 for $1550. These were special prices that the dealer did for me, I suppose you could do just as well. The SRP on both machines was $1299 for the 2802 and $1699 for the 3802. Anyway hope this helps.

    Best I got was $1120 CAD, including two $40 cables.

    It was a good deal, but when the Denon remote couldn't control my VCR or most of the functionality of my CD player, and I had to have the flip down panel open all the time for DVDs...well, I got tired of it and took it back.

    (did I mention, the first friend that saw the remote on the coffee table said "How cute! A retro remote from the 70's!")

    My tactics: bid two dealers against one another (or bring in a printout from etronics.com), then, when you've got him good an low, ask him to throw in some cables...worked for me. (note, I had no desire to start a relationship with these particular retailers)

    Peak Audio here in Halifax retail the 2802 for around $1100. and the 3802 for $1800 but you can get it for 1500. without too much effort. Their web site is www.peakaudio.ns.ca but mainly has manufacturers links on it but I would send them an email.However,I don't think that they mail order but you never know...cash usually talks a loud voice.Regards

    Thats some good prices there Sheldon, especially for a brick and morter store. Here we have the 2 main Denon dealers. A&B Sound(the best "big box" retailer for audio) that has it on now for $1348.00 from $1499.00 just a month ago. Audio Ark, a mid-high end store has it on for $1272.00. Online it should be considerably less but be wary of buying from a non-authorized dealer.

    I have been wanting one of these since it was the 2700, about 4 years ago. DVD was still a new technology and DIVX could be ruling(ruining?) our lives. Still, I have no 5.1 reciever, I just go to my friends and tweak his. *sigh*

    Paul,
    If your looking at getting the Denon 2802 for 6.1 then read no further. Otherwise if your looking at spending about $1300, then for $300-400 more you could go seperates. Rotel puts out the RMB-1066, an nice little amp rated at 6x60 but can be bridged down to 3x150. Pair this up with a Marantz AV560U, available on ebay(new in box) with its amazing remote and you have a fine little setup. The amp can be had for $850CDN and the Marantz for $600-650CDN. Checkout the links for info.
