Default Accessories4less

I'm thinking about getting a receiver and some speakers. All I have now is a couple year old Samsung soundbar. I stumbled onto accessories4less and was blown away by how reasonable their receivers were. Yes, I realize they're refurbished.

Has anyone ordered from there before? Should I have any concerns? They include a 1 year warranty and offer the ability to purchase 2,3&5 year extended warranties. I'm hesitant, but the prices seem really, really, good.

They're legit, my Marantz NR1402 and Boston Acoustics speakers in my upstairs system come from them, and I've ordered lots of wiring from them too since they're in the same state. Heck, they've been around since 2007 when I made my first order from them for a Marantz 7002 receiver.

They're good!

Got my Onkyo 818 from them. If it wasn't for it being listed as a refurb I never would have guessed it. Came in original packaging with all accessories, manuals, etc. Been going for about a year strong now with no issues. Definitely recommended.

Bought my first system from them 6 or 7 years ago. Got a refurb receiver with brand new speakers and remote. The system is still in use by my son for his gaming bedroom.

I've made 3 separate purchases through them, everything worked out & I would buy from them again, but on my last order I had an issue & costumer service was horrible. I accidentally bought the 20 amp model of a power conditioner and needed the 15 amp model. I couldn't find any way to cancel my order, only options to return products that you've already recieved.

I emailed customer service and their tech emailed me back saying it would work with any 15 amp outlet. I called them on my lunch break the following Monday to cancel or change my order & spent 20 minutes debating with the "technician" about whether it would work.

It literally took my whole break to convince this guy to open one of the boxes & look at the cord & then tell me if it would fit in any standard outlet.
After seeing he was wrong he told me I should contact panamax & see if they could send me a different cord. I told him I would much rather exchange my order for a different model. His response was " but I'd have to go to the other room & have it removed from the truck..."

@$$ hats.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll definitely sit down and figure out what receiver I want to go with. There are way too many choices out there lol

To help you figure out what you want, I'll tell you my "must haves"...

Pre-outs. For future external amplification.
HDMI upconversion. I still watch VHS and CED.
Universal remote. So I don't have to buy a Harmony/URC.

If those are three things you do not need. Any <$400(original MSRP) AVR is enough.

Just starting out...you probably don't even want to get into multi-zone.

7.1 comes in 3 flavors.

Traditional discrete(as in 7.1 on a Blu Ray)
5.1 + height (Yamaha Presence, IIz and DSX)
5.1 + width (DSX and Pioneer has a proprietary version)

If none of that stuff is a need...

Then it comes down to...

Would you use a front USB?
Front HDMI?
How many HDMI?(cause once you discover how useful an AVR is, you'll find yourself including more devices)
Do you like how the remote feels?(afterall. Once put in, how often are you touching the AVR?)
Spotify? Pandora? ITunes? Aupeo?

Another feature to consider is the calibration software. The main reason I went with denon was because of all the positive feedback that I've heard about audyssy xt32.
