    I would be grateful :lease:to all forum members if they could offer advice on where to purchase the above DVD and Amp? I am not necessarily after the cheapest just the best for service, aftercare etc.

    It would have to be a Denon approved retailer to ensure you get full support, but I have no doubt you will pay a little more than at some of the mail order box shifters. Go to Denons home page and pick a retailer near you from their list. This way you can demo, collect (or arrange installation) and bring your item back to them should problems occur (saving postage). I much prefer doing business that way.

    The 4806 (A11XV) and 5910 (DVD A1XV) are already out in the UK/Europe. :)

    There are other new Denon's due to appear though. They're the 3806 & 4306, both of which will have HDMI connections as well as Audyssey MultEQ XT. :smashin:

    I agree with The Cable Monkey 100%.

    I bought my gear from Sevenoaks in Swiss Cottage. I had a few demo's discussions and some good advice. Thre things they did impressed me in particular, which you wouldn't get from the internet folks:

    1. Although the amp and dvd player could have been bought a little cheaper elsewhere, they threw in some good quality interconnects for free and gave me a good deal on the speaker cable, meaning an overall saving.

    2. I decided that i wanted to upgrade my centre speaker to a slightly better one and they gave a full credit for the original one after i had used it for a month.

    3. They price-matched my Panny PV500 when i got a cheap quote from Tottenham Court Road.

    I'm sure many other shops would be similar, but it's something to consider against the internet.

    I bought my AVC-A11XV from Sevenoaks in Solihull and they gave me £100 off and a 15m HDMI cable FOC.

    I would recommend them anytime :thumbsup:

    The consensus on the advice was to use a reputable Denon dealer, not the internet. Although the guys in the for sale forum appear to be helpful and friendly they are neither dealers nor I suggest "the internet".

    Ignoring advice from those "in the know" can only end in tears.......

    Getting unanticipated repairs carried out under warranty is a difficult enough task without the added complication of dealing with transferred warranties. Denon have not shown that they have a flexible and caring customer service operation. Quite the contrary if some of the stories in here are to be believed. I was not casting aspersions on the reputation of any individual seller, rather pointing to the difficulties of warranty transfer. I should have made that clear!!
