It was the best of receivers, it was the worst of receivers
3 December 2011
Summary: It was the best of receivers: I didn't have a chance to try out most of its impressive list of features, but what I did try sounded wonderful: smooth, muscular, precise, everything I had hoped for. It was the worst of receivers: Unfortunately, I appear to have gotten a lemon.
Summary: I just spent several thousands with Newegg on their Klipsch speaker system and this receiver and hope I can get them set up and ready for the weekend party. I guess that won't happen now. What a shame with Newegg. If I knew this would've happened, I'd rather buy them at the local store instead.
Pros: Great receiver for home theater.
Cons: Newegg sent me a Denon AVR-1712 instead of Denon AVR-4311CI that I paid for. Did not find out until I got home from work. Customer service already closed. Hope they can resolve this soon. I am very disappointed with Newegg service and lack of QA at their shipping department.
