TX-RZ830 at A4L

Accessories4less is selling the TX-RZ830 in 2 flavors:
-) Refurb at $499, free shipping and 1 year warranty
-) New at $550, free shipping and 3 years warranty
If I go with the refurb and add the 5 years warranty for $47.99, i end up for the same price but 6 years warranty total
What makes more sense?

    So Refurb + extra warranty seems better.....It's not Square Trade but "CPS Extended Warranties". I assume they work kind of the same......

    Not all third party warrantys are created equal. Read reviews for that service and make an informed decision. You can always go straight to squaretrade's website and purchase through them there...

    When I got my RX-A2070 from Accessories4less I was going to get an extended warranty from them, but read reviews about the extended warranty (New Leaf) they offered and decided not to get one as the reviews weren't good. This was in June, 2018.

    well, I looked at some reviews...........tons of them are about how easy the registration process is, but not much about claims. I saw that shipping fees (both ways) are not covered. The unit being 31 Lbs, that might be expensive !!!!

    I did a Google search on the warranty company is how I found the reviews. Not on Accessories for Less.

    It's what I did as well..............found some review on Yelp where people who had to submit claims were not so happy !

    I also just checked on Amazon....The few recent reviews are about claims, and rating is terrible. Then other 5 stars reviews, but again only about how easy it is to register. So finally, the deal for a new receiver with 3 years manufacturing warranty might be the best choice after all

    The TX-RZ830 is in my cart (new one @ $550 with 3 years manufacturer warranty)...but I guess I'm getting "cold feet" somehow :o :o :o
    That's all me actually..................!!!!
    Do I need such unit (>$500) or something in the $300 price range might be enough for my needs, such as a Denon AVR-S940h or AVR-X2400H
    Will I ever go to 5.1.4, or will I ever need the pre-out to power my RTiA5 with an amp, etc....
    Now, I'm sure a friend of mine would tell me "Hey, we only live once".......

    Just go for it. bigger better AVR even sounds better on 2ch. Those cheaper AVR's won't sound as good or last as long

    Lol, treat yourself!!! AC4L IMO is the way to go, at least it has been for me for the last two purchases. I did an Integra processer and most recently an Integra Pre, both purchased with extended warranties......have no worries and plenty of good times!!!

    I've been lurking at the TX-RZ 830 for a while on A4L. It went down to $498, new with 3 years warranty. I thought it would go down even more with the 840 being released, but instead it went up and is now at $579.............Damn it!!!
    The good thing is I don't watch too much movies during summer, so I guess I can wait a little more to see if the price goes down again !!!
