Well, I went through all of this with the Onkyo 885/Integra 9.8 pre/pro. The first few people to receive them identified several problems with the units (they are the 99% the same). Everybody was up in arms. How could Onkyo do this to consumers? How could they release a cutting edge piece of equipment with problems for cryin' out loud? A number of people canceled their pre-orders then too. Within a month Onkyo released a firmware fix and all subsequent units were shipped with the firmware fix installed.
For the record I own the Onkyo. Is it perfect? No. It has a few nagging issues I wish it didn't have but then again, I've never bought a perfect piece of mass market equipment nor have I ever bought perfect fitting cloth's off of a rack.
Now, having said all of that, what worries me is that Samsung is not Onkyo. I have a certain cynicism about Korean products based on reports about the way they do business.
In closing the guy in the Amps forum and the guys here are of a tremendous service to the rest of us and I thank you. I'm just suggesting that we try not to be so reactionary.
Sometimes, the blind date has a pimple or two. I think eurotrance gave the best advice ever. Try it. If you don't like it send it back.
