The warranty of the receiver I am purchasing is two years (according to Harman/Kardon).
Receivers, Amplifiers and Tuners have a Two Year Warranty.
Other components have a One Year Warranty.
But according to what I saw on "amazon.com" three weeks ago, if I were to purchase an extended warranty for this VERY SAME Receiver, it would cost me to the tune of $150.00 for four years.
Let be hypothetical about this question. Were this to be you in this same situation, what would you do??? How would you decide??? Extended Warranty for the added Peace Of Mind???? Or would you bypass that idea altogether, and hope and pray that the receiver doesn't crap out on you when the warranty period is up, and hope that you get about 8-to-10 years out of the thing????
I wrestling with this idea because there are people here in the forums who have purchased Harman Kardon's products in the past, and have stated time and time again that they are have performance issues with their products. While on the other hand, other people have had some issues when it came to the extended warranties that they have purchased, only to find later on that they are not worth the paper they are written on.
Have any idea about what you would do in this situation???
