    i found a good price on the unit i want, but its a refurb w/ a 1 yr warranty.
    the price is about 25% less than a brand new unit with a 2 yr warranty.

    any advice?

    how often do recievers crap out after 1 year?

    Is the warranty with the manufacturer or the retailer ?

    and how much us the recevier worth before the 25% discount ?

    its an NAD t 761 from an e-tailer.
    price new is $800 (which is the price i'm being quoted by local dealers for their demo models).
    price for the refurb is $600.
    warranties are thru NAD.

    the price the local dealers are giving me on new one is around $1000.
    no way i can get the local dealers to come down $200 on their demos.

    I bought a couple refurb'd Onkyo TX-DS484's from Ubid.com. Had them for about 2 years and both have worked fine.

    Here is one you may be interested in
    http://www.spearitsound.com/index.htm
    They have the T-761 refurb for $599.00
    I am willing to bet you can get one for a bit of a deal if you call and haggle a tad.
    If they are factory units, they should come with a factory warranty.
    I have never had any problem with a refurb unit.
