I have 45 days to return anything purchased at BB.
I hear that
but year and after year the asian brands( audio and video) do it to themselves
in an effort to keep you in the buying market almost yearly they consistently come up with features
some breakthough..others not so much
Inevitably though it almost completely drops the market value of the unit that preceded it
Having never been an early adopter...but often a buyer at a huge percentages off at the end of the season, I can tell you it happens almost every year
when 3D came out..Best Buy blew out all non 3D AVR's...70-75% off retail
the non 3D capable higher end Tv's were also blown out
I guess someone in the BB organization said we cant be behind in technology and have to blow the old stuff out
I didnt complain....with some Denon 4310's...Yamaha Z7's...Pioneer Sc25's....Panasonic V10 plasma TV..
. It was a good holiday that year with keeping some, selling some for a profit and gifting some.
I like the Pioneer's as well and am still rocking a SC37( bought for $500 at BB) that I am really considering replacing with this 4520 deal, for my master bedroom setup
