Best place to buy a GTP38R that stands by warranty claims?

Im considering buying a GTP38R but am slightly scared because of many failure stories I have read about. Luckly most of these stories I read seem to happen fairly quick and well within a year (warranty). BUT I read how most places do not stand by the warranty! This all scares me. I just want to buy it from the most reputable scource so if I have a problem within the 1 year warranty I can simply return it for another on the spot!

By the way I did search and read a lot! Many of the posts were older and I wanted a better idea of who is a good company to buy through today. Thank you guys!

Eric at PTP hooked me up with my 38R last year and its been great so far. If anything were to happen I doubt that PTP wouldn't stand behind what they sell. Got it for a great price along with free shipping.

Some do. For example, I help a buddy of mine who sells and installs home theatres etc. He is a seller/installer, but I tell you what...if his customers have a problem with a product he sells/installs...he trades it out.

He then goes and deals with his distributor. I know I had a marantz that I had issues with, I called marantz, started the circle jerk with them (didnt want to bug my buddy)...My wife found out, called him.

My buddy brought a new piece over, took mine that had an issue. He said his customers pay him to not only sell them a product, but to back them up on the product.

Not just take their money and run.

He makes money on 95% of his jobs. That 5% is the cost of doing business. He doesnt advertise. Yet he is so fricking busy with new customers due to word of mouth recommendations.
