They sell demo's frequently at mine. I don't know if BF matters. I see a bunch of demo receivers now because they upgraded several to Atmos.

That sounds much better than the original, but my Synology DS413J and 4 3TB drives still only cost around $1K. That gives me 8TB of usable space. MakeMKV and Bytecopy also do very well. I would...

That sounds better, but doesn't it limit you to one source for buying movies? Also, are they true BD equivalent movies, or compressed?

I only have 12TB NAS and the maintaining it cost me for less than the $17K Kaleidescape. If they brought Kaleidescape down to a $3K-$4K range I might consider it.

I am not sure why you want to stay away from Baja. They are factory refurbished. I would trust that vs an open box item. Either way, it's your choice. Either pony up and by retail or take a risk.

The 3, 1000s would be fine. For in ceiling I would just get the Def Tech in ceiling 5.5, DIs or the old model. It depends on your budget.
