I came across an opportunity to buy an refurbished S2 for $7k (only 90 day warranty from Marantz). Is this a deal or am I crazy?


thanks

That is about the same price as refurbished S1's were going for about 6 months ago.


So, it could be a legitimate deal but make sure the seller knows that you are looking for an S2. The part numbers are easy to confuse and often are.


Good luck to you, that is a very reasonable deal.

Ps. put it through the ringer in those first 90 days looking for problems and don't mess with it after that.


Pps. You seem concerned which leads me to believe this is some sort of eBay/internet deal. As always, excercise caution.

No, but IMO the seller is either crazy or a crook. Make sure you know which.


Marantz does not warranty projectors that are not purchased directly from an authorized dealer so make sure your source is an "authorized" and confirm this by calling Marantz directly.

Also, make sure it's not a (gray market) Japanese unit that the menus are only in Japanese. The S2 doesn't have a choice of different languages in it's menu. It's English only or something else only.

Well I purchased the unit for $7k from Ubid. Confirmed from Marantz America that this was a factory refurbished S2 (to original specs) unit. It arrived yesterday from Marantz with all documentation and after initial review seems perfect (not a Japan unit as it has an enlish menu). I was also able to purchase a 2 yr warrenty (parts and labor) for $250 from Ubid.


Given the prices I have seen for S1, this seems like a great deal but time will tell.

An S2 for $7K? Refurbished or not, you're getting one of the BEST DLP pj's on the market. You will not be sorry. Purchasing the extra warranty was a good idea. I'm told you can double the warranty using a Gold Visa card.

Good luck and enjoy the S2 :)

Agreed. I saw this PJ last weekend and it was awesome. Too bad I don't want to spend the $12K list on a PJ!
