Denon A1 comes home!
Seven weeks after originally sending it off, my Denon A1 came back from “repairs”.
They have, according to the docket, apparently done nothing to it. “All parameters of performance within standard operating limits,” said the disturbingly Orwellian details section.
Bloody thing still overheats, still skips. It still has the chroma upsampling bug and chroma delay, too. What’s more, the Firmware seems to have been downgraded!
Funny, though, it’s still multiregion and can now connect to my amp via Denon Link. I could never seem to get it to work before.
I gave Denon a ring and asked them why it had taken so long to get the thing repaired. They said, “Because we couldn’t find anything wrong with it!”
