I bought some Paradigm speakers since they were 35% and decided to get this Denon AVR-1910
http://www.6ave.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=DENAVR1910-OPN

I read on another forum and this forum, some of the members referring people to 6ave.com so I bought that receiver and on the site it shows "Ships out in 3-4 weeks" BUT the the one I purchased is "Open Box" which means that they obviously already have it in stock. So I e-mailed 6ave.com customer support and asked why it would take so long to ship out and This is the response I got "Because we are waiting on Denon to replenish our stock. -Scott"

I also got an e-mail stating that I would get an confirmation when my order has shipped. That was last Thursday and I still haven't gotten any confirmation back. No money has been pulled from my account yet, but so far I'm extremely leery about this whole deal so far, should I cancel my order or are they trustworthy?

Amazon uses them, so I'd feel pretty confident.

6thavenue is one of those places where if they leveled the building and put up a really sleazy used car dealership, all of the salesmen could keep their jobs. Very high pressure commission driven salespeople who will tell you with a straight face that monster cable is the best you can get and only an idiot would buy cheaper.

ALL THAT being said, they sell fantastic product and I have purchased quite a few things from them over the years without any problem. So I'd imagine what they are waiting on is refurbs. They probably have a deal with Denon to sell refurbished product for them.

Ok good. I was just didn't have a good feeling about it once they told me an open box item would take 3-4 weeks to ship since Denon was replenishing there stock. Glad that this sounds more like a reputable company. Thanks everyone.

I bought a Blu-ray player from them when they had a name your price sale. I had no problems with them and would buy from them again.
