i know that price talk is forbidden, but I hope this question is ok: Amazon is selling the 3311 for $1200. Are there authorized dealers selling for significantly lower $$s?
BTW, thanks for mentioning JandR.
They are one of my favorites.
They will absolutely bargain with you on price.
Call them. It helps if you have done a bit of
research and have a price in front of you from
a competing authorized dealer. You may be
amazed that in the end you will save a few
hundred $$$. Don't be afraid to ask them if
they would be considering to go as low as the
amount you have in mind. I lowballed them
on a Sony camcorder selling $300 under their
advertised price and they matched it only
because Amazon was selling it at that price.
Update on Network repair:
Luckily, I have a Denon authorized repair center here locally, so I brought my 3311 in last Monday. I got a call from them on Friday telling me that the HDMI module that also has the networking support was on back order from Denon for at least 4 weeks. That was the bad news but the good news I guess is that he also said that Denon had come up with a fix for this issue that would only involve reprogramming the module. Not sure if it's a new firmware or what but he thought it would take 7 to 10 days to get the reprogrammed module back. Guess all I can do is just wait and see if this really fixes the networking problem. I'll post again once I get te unit back.
