Buy It From Us!
When you buy your Marantz receiver, you should buy it from us. If you buy from us, we’ll support you. If you don’t buy from us, you get to duke out your service with wedontcare.com.
We get a fair number of calls from people who have ordered any number of receivers on line- looking for service. You see, UPS and Fed Ex don’t necessarily treat your receiver as you would. Even if they carried each unit with white gloves, a certain percentage would be DOA or have problems in short order. Complicate that with bouncing them around various trucks, moving them around freight warehouses, or even tossing them around the truck on 20 stops before they get to your house. What could go wrong?!
If the receiver arrives at your door and you sign for it, IT IS YOURS. As soon as you sign for it, even if it’s broken in half, it’s your problem. Stated within the policies of web suppliers is that it is your responsibility to be aware of the unit’s condition when you sign for it. Nobody checks out receivers when they arrive. The drivers are in a hurry. Often you’re not home and someone else just signs for the unit and it’s done. Signed, sealed, delivered, it’s yours.
Many companies say they’ll give refunds. Ah, but not for BROKEN merchandise. They will tell you sorry dude, it was your responsibility to pay attention when you signed for it.
Some sellers offer you 30 days to try it. You might not even get the menus figured out within that period of time. If you have a problem in 31 days, you get to pay to send it to the repair house. That’s right. They are not going to SWAP it for you, it’s going to a national repair house out east where it will wait in line. It will likely be over a month this time of year before it gets looked at, much less repaired.
The guys doing repairs are under the gun too. If a certain problem is typically solved by a certain solution, the tech changes that part or board- and out it goes. They do not take the time to actually QC every repair. The tech is paid per piece. Their fix is right about half the time.
Where do you suspect B stock comes from? Refurbished? Places selling B stock are selling gear that has failed to be repaired at least twice. Not a good investment.
Further, if you happened to have purchased from an UNAUTHORIZED DEALER, you have NO WARRANTY. You can scream to the highest mountain that the seller told you they were authorized. But if they are not on the list of authorized dealers, tough luck buddy.
When you buy from us, you’re protected from DOAs. You’re covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. Don’t risk getting stuck with a big problem.
