Wow, that's interesting! I'm not much of a fighter and dislike confrontation, I don't really know what to do. Call Denon directly, or take it up with the authorized repair center first? Life lessons I never learned :/ I'm not looking for a freebie from them. It is discouraging that my ps3 and other electronics have all outlived the avr.
Oh - edit - I just looked up the lemon law, and I'm not sure whether it applies to the AVR. It points back to section 9801 of the B&P code here in california, which contains definitions of equipment. This is the definition that might apply:
"(h) "Electronic set" includes, but is not limited to, any television, radio, audio or video recorder or playback equipment, video camera, video game, video monitor, computer system, photocopier, or facsimile machine normally used or sold for personal, family, household, or home office use."
Is an AVR "playback equipment" ? Or "computer system" ? There is that nice catch-all, "includes but is not limited to".. interesting.
If Denon doesn't acknowledge, do I threaten law suit? Ugh. I don't like this much.
