Was just about to post this. Was torn between a couple of models but ultimately settled on the Denon 1712. Best price I could find online was $251 + $20 shipping on Buy.com and was just about to pull the trigger. I just happened to look up Fry's website and noticed that for this model they had it listed at $399 and was pre-order only...but it also said limit 1 per household like it was on sale. Obviously something was up. I went up to the store (Plano, TX) to check it out, and low-and-behold they had them in stock for $227, just over $245 after tax. I snatched it up and just got home to install it. Can't wait!
So for anyone looking, don't believe what you see online. Most likely whoever listed it on their site got it confused with the upcoming 1713.
