Dealers aren't authorized by Denon to make repairs, especially if the piece is under warranty- for that, they have regional service centers. If you're in the Midwest, call Electronic Express in Chicago, a company that is authorized by most manufacturers.
I agree. As I said I highly doubt the dealer will actually change this board, but is doing him the courtesy of facilitating the repair. He may well get better and priority service from the repair center, if he is an authorized dealer then the OP would.

This is not a warranty repair by the way.

Ya 500 quoted to repair or well replace digital board .. I done pretty well with receivers at this particular auction but I didnt test it this time I always do . One time I dont lol .
If it were me I'd just buy a refurb from accessories4less.com and get a full 3 year warranty. Like @TLS Guy said , that might not be the only problem and for $400 more to get piece of mind, IMHO is worth it.

If you are going to buy used, A4L is probably a better bet. Apparently you do get 1 year warranty on those Denon refurbished units. $749.99 isn't bad for the newest model, the X3600H. It is a little less powerful than the AVR-X4400H but has the same 7.1.4 capability, same DAC, preamp/vol control etc. The heat sink layout also looks the same, seems like a huge upgrade from the AVR-X3400/3500H in terms of circuit boards/heat sink/transformer layout.

My issue is I already have almost 600 invested into the item way to much for the 4400 another 450 that's over a grand risk I could get it fixed and it work.perfect for years or may break in a week maybe fix it and sell it then buy something under warranty I think I would still lose money but maybe a few hundred instead of 600

Don't let your questionable decision effect your future ones.

Dude, I stay in my head too much. I was acknowledging the truth of that statement for myself first.
