Not likely if they charge more for an Atmos movie.

And also when I bought everything (speakers, blu-ray, tv, avr, etc..) the one thing the Magnolia Audio/Video rep didn't suggest was an extended warranty on the AVR because (and this made sense to me, so let me know what you think) is that an AVR has "NO" moving parts unlike a Blu-ray player which I did get the extended warranty. So Marantz' default 1yr warranty did come in handy but after that, I was on my own, and luckily up until now, it was all good.

Well hopefully Adam's Electronics in Huntington Beach, CA will fix it right and I'll be back to normal watching my movies Thanks for the tip jdsmoothie.
The AVR came with a 3 year warranty from Marantz, although moot as you're outside of that time period. What more often goes bad on an AVR is the HDMI board (eg. Onkyo's troubles) which can cost upwards of $400-$500 to replace.

Ah silly me! I thought it was just a default 1yr warranty! Well nothing happened from year 2 to 3. But after that then that's when all hell broke loose! Got a call from the repair shop and due to snow back east, the part was held but yes Marantz did have one in stock and it's being shipped so this week they'll get it from New Jersey. And it was the HDMI board. Total repair cost is $267 (but then got add the shipping to/from that I have to pay) but worth it.

Hey I just noticed that before and now that you mentioned, I wonder what your avatar mean? I'm sure you figured out mine is the Martin Logan speaker company logo as I was just drawn to them when I first saw them at someone's house and did research on them and I said to myself when I can afford a high-end entertainment system, I'm getting these type of speakers. I have the EM-ESL (baseline series).

So far the warranties on the other things I got

Panasonic Viera TC-P55VT30 (55" Plasma 3D HD) 4yrs
Oppo BDP-93 (4yrs)

I haven't had to put them to use so you're theory on the companies making money were spot on. But hey it's insurance and so far "knock on wood" my TV and Blu-ray have been flawless (same for my ML speakers which I didn't have warranty on those from Magnolia Audio/Video but I believe ML has their own.
