hey ppl. im thinking about purchasing a receiver. i checked out accessories4less and they have lots of stock on refurbished marantz receivers. i need your opinion guys? yay or nay? how well do these B-stocks perform? is the 1 year warranty that comes with it enough? thanks!
no one has any comments on these? bueller? bueller?
Marantz is a fine manufacturer. A year warranty is normally fine for non-speaker electronics, as receivers that are "shaky" will usually exhibit their bad behavior almost immediately.
It depends on how good a bargain the receiver is compared to what it costs new. It better be at least 33-50% less than MSRP, because you can normally get a new Marantz with minor dickering for 20% off MSRP. Also, it should be a current model, or you should get it at an even larger discount.
Also, as with any receiver, make sure it has the features you want.
