I'm sitting here in front of a laptop writing this, smoking a Padron 1964 Anniversario Torpedo, which is a pleasure I usually allow myself when I feel good.

First off Dan is LISTNING! That's pretty valuable in this day and age. You seem to be in a send only mode.
You think the engineers are coming over from Japan for their health? Dan probably spent lot's of time making that happen.
What's with the service menu issue? He explained pretty clearly that it is restricted only to authorized repair centers. Seems like a pretty good answer to me. I wouldn't want someone posing as a dealer having service menu acess either.
You are right that anyone contemplating the purchase of something direct from Japan should think long and hard. Especially those living in areas where they can't find independent troubleshooting and repair facilities.
Remember that Dan is the Marantz TRAINING DIRECTOR. Warranty issues, especially in regard to US vs Foreign sources are made at a lot higher level than Dan. And Marantz still has a lot better warranty coverage than lots of high-end AV manufacturers.

Frankly I think those who are still Dan bashing are simply not listening and reading carefully
For each of the instances where he's said 'no' to someone the explanation he's given has been entirely plausible and acceptable. Further bitching just makes you sound like a bitter, cry-baby, sore loser (anon coward comes to mind).
