Also note the newer models have not had the NIC failure issue as was prominent with the XX10 models.
Although I have been satisfied with several Denon products in the past, I very seriously doubt that I would buy another Denon product to replace a defective product unless they were to offer a rebate to offset my trouble and expense.
How can I have any confidence that they haven't changed their perspective on product quality to increase profits?
Especially since you say that there have been "additional issues with the replacement board".
Put simply, it is much, much more difficult to repair lost confidence that it is to create it in the first place.
Thank you for your response.
