Question about Denon AVR-1508 Receiver
Bought Denon 1508 from authorised dealer at simlimsquare singapore. I moved to India and got the same setup in India through an authorised service centre.
After 15 days of use, I had the problem of receiver getting into protect mode.[system automatically goes into standby] Then I gave it to the denon center. They kept the receiver with them for 15 days. I was told transformer is damaged and they repaired. After 1 day of use post that - this new problem[system is on but no sound comes plus burnng smell] has occured. No sound. in addition i can also get a burning smell from the receiver. [and faintly some indication of smoke!!] however i live in India and do not have warranty cover. [The warranty I have is only for singapore]
What should i do? I have already spent about 100$ on repairing a brand new receiver and do not know how much more to spend.
Request somebody to help/ advice. Also my appeal to all those audio enthusiasts- PLEASE DO NOT CONSIDER DENON FOR ENTRY LEVEL RECEIVERS. THEIR 1508 IS A VERY BAD MODEL. their service support is pathetic.
Perhaps u might consider going to a(n) (unauthorised) repair centre. just check with folks around u or maybe audio forums within your area. authorised agent doesn't always mean the best. i suspect they may have used reconditioned components.
