    Hiya all,

    I am going to buy a Denon 3802 in mid Jan 2003, upgrading from a Pioneer 709 RDS receiver, my main worry is the wide variety of pricing that appears on the net.

    I have seen i for £599 at Go2Camcorder.co.uk and from there it gradually increases to the £699 mark between different retailers.

    My main question to current Denon owners is:

    If a Denon receiver is priced that cheaply (woohoo! - £599) is this an indication that it is a grey import spec machine and not an official UK Denon spec? (Doh!) Indeed, is there a major disadvantage to buying a grey import spec machine, I would particulary like to hear from those of u that have bought one in the past....

    I am also under the impression that a full UK spec Denon amp/receiver has a 2 yr warranty, is this true?

    So ultimately, is there a risk I am taking by buying the cheaper priced model?

    Thanx for your time,

    Emissary.

    You won´t get much response between 3 & 7 in morning!

    The official Denon dealers give a two year warranty for their amps/receivers. So unless the online seller is officially a Denon dealer (unlikely) then you´d have to assume the units are grey imports.

    Spec wise I don´t think there is any difference between the units at all, its just down to the warranty issue.

    Its your choice.:)
