I hate to hear of your bad luck. However, I'm not sure that Denon is the only brand that you would have had the same experience. I am surprised that the B&Ms would not honor the warranty. It is my understanding that they get paid the same for the warranty service whether or not you bought it from them.

Your situation really sucks!!!
