When I go to well here
, it says something rather confusing and conflicting:
1) *Pioneer does NOT authorize any dealers to sell Elite-branded products on the Internet (only in-store sales are permitted). Therefore, any Elite-branded product purchased on the Internet is NOT authorized, which means that it does NOT carry the manufacturer's limited warranty and does not qualify for any manufacturer's rebate.
2) Peace of mind – Only authorized dealers are able to sell brand-new, non-refurbished, original stock products, complete with accessories and manuals that are made for use in the US.
When in doubt, check our lists and get links directly to authorized sites.
The following dealers are authorized to sell our products:
(included in this rather long list of icons, is Amazon.com)
So, does this mean a warranty comes with purchases of Pioneer goods at Amazon.com, or are they saying that the Elite's are exempt from the warranty.
Also, did you pay more or less than what Amazon is selling for $1350? and how do you get a warranty online?
I guess there is Square Trade. You have to follow Amazon's links to the Square Trade pages to get the warranty price, I see.
