LOL free like free shipping?\n\nYou mean because it's always factored into the retail one way or another? I know they don't offer that 3 year\/extended\/whatever it is with everyhing and charge extra for it with some purchases. I think it's like $75. I wouldn't pay for that, but if a unit is at a reduced retail already and they toss in the warranty for no extra to sweeten the pot..? I paid $899 for my SR6011 and got the same warranty. No hidden charges or anything. Just had to register it and use a code. \n\nNow as to how good it is I have no idea because I never had to use it.
