If they were not the ones that were shipping the units that might have made it tricky....to coordinate billing and shipment with an outside company

On another note...those that are near a Magnolia Home Theater( Best Buy) should check out their clearance deals
For just a little more than this unit was they have some pretty serious items at major discounts...that can vary by store
I have bought 3 units there in the last 3 weeks and I have been demo'ing all three of them to figure out what I am going to keep
There is another thread here on that..but
Pioneer Sc37 at 78% off retail..keeping that for sure( just the unit and power cord)
Pioneer Sc57 at 65% off..demo unit will all accessories
Yamaha A2010 at 69% off...demo with remote and power cord

curiously...thus far I may like the sound of the SC37 to the model that replaced it the SC57

I emailed them today as well, same statement was received. As we were warned the only thing fast at "Onesaleaday" is the credit card billing!!!!!!!!Thumbdown
I emailed them as well and got a response on 01/29. "Please allow an additional 3 to 5 business days for your order to process and ship." *sigh* Mad

I am doing my best to be patient. :-)

I passed up an Elite (VSX-52TX I believe) for $314 + tax (web site had it listed for $267 + tax as an open box so i decided to hold off) the day before ordering this. I also passed on some nice Onkyo deals. The HK1700 deal was decent but the lack of inputs (zero component inputs for Wii or legacy SACD and DVD-Audio Audio players) was a huge downside.

If this R-972 does not ship soon, I may start looking again and cancel...

If this is like other 1saleaday orders I've experienced, it's possible that days may go by between when they generate the label and when UPS actually gets the package.

Coincidentally, at the same time as the tracking number email appeared, I got a reply to my second email requesting a tracking number: "I apologize for the shipping delay. We are currently experiencing some system problems with the tracking information. You can expect delivery shortly."

That Sucks! Some strange setup configuration maybe? Do analog sources work? It's disappointing a refurb from the factory is DOA.

Really disappointed, packaging looked brand new and receiver had no fingerprints or signs of wear. I am sure this is going to be a major hassle!!!Mad

I hope everyone gets a good unit as urlhasbeenblocked basically told me to f---off.

I will never buy from them again.

unfortunate to have to have to send it back for warranty service right off the bat

However...there in lies the expectation one might have for $299

I am sure after its repair you will be good to go

The $299 was simply a clearance price and is not a reflection of the quality.
gmanhdtv's unit does not need any repair now. He stated he fixed it himself (loose board inside unit) two days ago on avsforum, where he noted that it was likely a UPS shipping issue.

I noticed the board with the speaker jacks connected was not fully seated in its slot, (another example of why I hate UPS shipping). I pressed it down firmly and heard a reassuring click. Checked everything I could see, plugged in the power, turned it on and yes I have sound.

Anyone who has ordered this from either acc4less or urlhasbeenblocked I strongly recommend you take off the cover and inspect for shipping issues.

Thanks to all that helped out, now I can wait till after tonight's game to pull my trusty Onkyo 805 from the main theater and will see what all the fuss about Trinnov is all about![END OF AVSFORUM POST].


Hopefully this post will help anyone else who runs into a similar issue or who gets nervous after reading about a defective unit that was apparently just a case of rough handling during shipping .
