Just bought 2 days ago. Some shops in Mongkok (Yau Shing Building) listed $4080 - $4100, but NO STOCK. I bougth at Fortress at $4980 by VISA, take away immediate.
Comments : 1. The remote can be set to operate my Sony TV, but not Sony VCR. I tried all codes provided in the manual, but failed. The remote control is not so convinent to use. My wife should not able to handle.
2. Main unit and speakers are just labelled "Denon Japan". It is not sure whether they are really made in Japan.
3. Pros are : Wooden speaker cases, most other brands are plastic. Central speaker is different from the other 4. Sub-woofer is active speaker. Has 4 external source inputs, should be enough. Has video component out, good for my future Plasma TV. Can read most of my China DVD, DVD9, VCD, MP3. Passed Abex test disk TDV541 chapter 10, scratch=2mm. Passed Abex TDV533, eccentricity=150um.
4. Cons are : Radio does not have RDS. Radio station cannot be selected by numeric key. No mic in for karaoke. No speaker stand provided, nor can be bought. Switching on Pro-Logic II needs too many steps.
If I could have bought it at $4100, 扺買指數 will be 5.
