    Absolutely!!! Just a bit nervous now, because.....I assume it could arrive when I'm gone...and they won't leave it without signature (not sure I'd want them dumping it off on my porch anyway). Had I known this...I could have had it delivered to my office where anyone could have signed for it.

    Congratulations GOS!!!
    I have an x4000 and like it a lot. It was an upgrade from a 3808ci when I got my ZT60 so I didn't need two hdmi cables going to the ZT for 3d among other things. I haven't spent a ton time with it but it works well for movies which is what I mainly use it for.

    Yes. OK, so I did come in. It's refurbished, as I said. It looks brand new. No flaws. Shiny, boxed up as if brand new. Don't have time to hook it up tonight. Gonna have to wait till Saturday morning....

    Denon does a good job with their refurbs.

    Most instances "refurbed" are most oftenly units that have been returned to BigBox or major online sellers like Amazon, where they don't even check out the returns (just issue refunds or exchanges) and send them to a predetermined repair/resellers companies (like Accessories4Less and DAK, other such major resellers), where they are bench checked and run through a computer diagnostic and it is determined as salvageable or scrap. 80-90% of the time it is returned for lack off knowledge by buyers to process setup or even read MANUALS (which 'in and of itself' are extremely confusing materials that makes rough sense even to understand by someone familiar with doing this), so by a process of pressing 'every God damned button' til this thing works right. Till they surrender and in disgust, then they put it back in the box and returned because "It's broken"
    All returns, by direction of manufacturers are sent to regional tech-centers (Factory Reps) which are also authorized Factory repair/reseller facility
    So basically they do a factory beta reset then retest for functionality (usually all functions are tested to verify if fully operational before resale).

    Yep yep. Ignorant/confused laymen are good for us A/V enthusiasts on a budget :-)

    I can't tell you have many returned products I've seen at my local Fry's Electronics. If the item is still obviously good, they put it back on the shelf and mark it down a few bucks for bargain hunters. Lots of people think they can be a computer or A/V hobbyist and then find out they have no idea what they're doing but... "it must be broken".
