Have to Share My UNBELIEVABLE Deal!!
Recently tried out a few receivers. First an X4000 from Denon refurb for $849. Wanted something different from my old Pioneer SC-25. I liked it in 9.1 and liked the sound but had some issues. Then purchased a Yamaha 3030, and got it for $1299, and truly loved the 11.1 and the way it sounded. After a while I started reading about the Dolby Atmos stuff and started to want even more. Well after returning both for the Future I went back to my Sc-25 and was unhappy, but was willing to wait out the whole Dolby Atmos thing for another year or so. Then I happened to stop by a Brandsmart in FL and saw an X4000 sitting on a table considerably marked down. I had purchased and returned the Yamaha from them so I felt bad at this point. Nevertheless I decided to inquire about the X4000 that was tagged at $249.98. The salesperson said that he could give it to me for $199 because it did not have the Audyssey mic. I figured that would hold me over until Atmos and whatever DTS would come up with for the time being. So I proceeded to checkout and then the salesperson came to the checkout window with the Audyssey mic and am/fm antennas in a packet and I was stupified! What an Unbelievable Deal! Got an X4000 with the full 3 year warranty and all the accessories for just $216 tax included. And, if I choose, the financing on my Brandsmart card is for 9 months, that would be $24 bucks a month, if I needed! It just goes to show.....wait until the last possible moment when purchasing new gear...and how much of a mark-up there must really be for this stuff.
