I received my "brand new" onkyo from Gibbys audio but when i unboxed i remark that there is no front sticker. I means the sticker with showing features info like "THX - 4K TV - 180watt - etc" . I also remark some scratch on the side of the receiver. Did Onkyo put front sticker on all of 818 receiver ?
thanks

2013 = Onkyo TX-NR818 and Denon AVR-3313CI

My brand new 1010 from Onecall only had the Spotify sticker on it. My previous 818 from Crutchfield only had the Spotify sticker as well. So that seems to be normal. The scratches/smudges on the side of the unit are not normal.
