you say this like its a bad thing. do you not understand how/ what the Costco satisfaction guarantee is???
unless you have experience with it...it could be a good or a bad thing
I guess if I was given the choice of a factory warranty or a Costco warranty of the same timeframe...I would go with the Pioneer factory warranty all day long
Check out avsforum and home theater shack.
There doesn't seem to be any question that the internals are the same between the sc-12* models and the elites.
I still can't find a magnolia store with those low prices on the elite models but if you are lucky to have the choice of those or the 1522 I'd go with the real elite anyway
I would think the Magnolia prices are the same everywhere...
