    I'd like to buy a new denon avr-4802 for a reasonable price. Any suggestion where I can buy it? By the way, if you have a suggestion, let me know if the online etailer is reliable, and honest. Also if you have bought from such etailer recently. Thanks.

    I can only afford to pay about $1600.00 plus any tax or/and shipping.

    Sincerely,

    orestes.

    That's awfully cheap for the 4802. I have seen it for a few hundred more at Sound Distributors. Personally have dealt with them three times. No problems so far. Prompt service too. They have good marks from the online ratings companies and, supposidly, they are members of the Better Business Bureau's group of "honest" companies.

    orestes,
    I think i can help. I just bought mine from www.audioexcellence.com on the internet for $1667.99, optional extended warranty for $249, plus $70 to $100 for freight, and no tax since its a wholesale house but might change after the new year.
    It took 3 to 5 days to receive my equipment and I live on the west cost.
    Goodluck,
    JaimeC

    I went to Sound Distributors but this etailer wants $1850.00 which is more than I am willing to pay for this receiver (I already have a denon avr-3300, but I am running out of optical audio inputs--only 3 vs 5 in the avr-4802). Also the avr-4802 has one more component video input than my current avr-3300 which only has two sets of component video inputs.

    By the way, I found the following prices for this unit in the following etailers, but I don't know any of them:

    etailer: price:

    dealznet.com $1650

    audiosound.com $1676

    pricesrite $1580

    letsgodigital $1580

    digitalsuperstore $1580

    Does anyone know anything about letsgodigital? I believe I read a few post about it when I was looking for a portable DVD player at the begin of this year, but I don't remember if it is good, bad, honest, dishonest, or reliable.

    Thanks for your suggestions so far.

    orestes.

    I am now looking at audioexcellence.com. Let me think about this to see if I can gather more feed back from the forum.

    Thanks,

    orestes.

    Have you thought about using the AmEx Blue card? They have an awesome pricematch policy. If it were me, and I had $1600 to spend, I'd find a good place to buy it at for $1850. Then, you can pricematch with the card down $250 (that's their max per item limit) and you end up getting the $1600 price and buying from the (hopefully better) $1850 place.

    Denon is a 40 point line, so a legitimate dealer's cost is about $1500, not including shipping costs. If somebody's selling these within $100 of cost, chances are pretty likely that the product is either gray market, "B" stock(blemished), refurbished(returns), or lacks a proper warranty(don't want to get into THAT again). You really owe it to yourself to do a product like this "the right way"...ie...look for a decent discount, but from a dealer who will stand behind it if it needs quick repairs or will help with any questions. My dealer even provides loaners when necessary.
    If you're interested, I can get you a 25% discount from list($1875) from an authorized dealer who you'll not only LOVE doing business with, but who you will definitely recommend to your friends. No, he ain't the cheapest, but he's the best overall. I promise.
    Regards,
    Randy
