What do you suggest I do to get music to sound better?
If you haven't run the MCACC setup yet, be sure to do that. In these days of advanced electronics and sound processing, the traditional "treble" and "bass" analog knobs are pretty much obsolete. For that matter, since the days of equalizers, the amount of control over tonality is much better than simple "bass" and "treble" knobs. The receivers have this built in electronically now, so it takes a little more digging to get to it. I suggest running the MCACC and seeing what effect it has. The post-processing results should be viewable on the on-screen display on your TV, showing the EQ and channel level adjustments that it made to everything. In the end, even though there are many different opinions on how sound "should" be heard, it's all a matter of personal taste. (see also: last 2 pages of this thread.
Safe? I suppose, if it's from a trusted seller. Since you're exporting it to Colombia, I'm not sure if there would be a factory warranty on it anyway, so the fact that the factory warranty is voided by buying it online is of little consequence.
I would, however, hesitate to buy an item from a seller who doesn't even have the correct product image in their listing. The receiver in the picture on that listing appears to be an SC model or something, but certainly isn't a VSX-23.
But that's just me.
