Value Electronics (800-789-5050) is taking phone preorders on the Onkyo TX-NR905 receiver for $ 1599 + shipping. They are an authorized Onkyo dealer. They are also taking preorders & orders on the other new Onkyo receivers at a substantial discount.

A lot of folks on the forum have purchased HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players from VE and have been very satisfied with their outstanding customer service.

I have a 905 on order with Robert at VE.

I have no idea. I followed all the rules and I certainly don't profit from this post. So I reposted.

I have a question about this - But am also conscious of my finances (And yes I realize it won't be charged until shipped):

How long do you think I can wait and still get in on a preorder? I mean, if it is due out in August, can I wait 2-3 weeks on this price?

I would recommend you privately email VE your question: sales@*********************

$1299, there's a thread a little below this one...

EDIT: That's J&R's pre-order price, if you're asking VE's I'm not sure but believe they're matching J&R.

Last when I spoke with Robert Zohn at VE--- they were matching J&R's price on the item. You'll have to call to see the current shipping fee though.

Well, I went ahead and pre ordered mine today.

This should be fun now.

BTW - They were very friendly over the phone. Sorry CJO, I meant to ask about Integra. But I will say, when I look at Onkyo's website, VE is listed. When I looked at Integra's website, they were not.

Greetings everyone. Sorry for the ignorance, but I am interested in buying this receiver (especially at the mentioned preorder price).

Question - will the retail price after this hits the market go up? I saw on a different thread the new 50" pioneer on preorder for $3999 - should I expect the market price to be higher once it is released?

Thanks - I'm learning the ropes and trying to judge how much time i have to pull the trigger.

My guess is that price will change on a dealer-by-dealer basis. I don't think there are formal incentives for preorders. I would call someone like Robert at VE and ask him that question...he's the owner so you'll get a straight answer.

Albator, I don't have any emails that have not been responded to. Can you PM me a copy of your email so I can respond. I assume my spam filter may have blocked your email.

DKatman, we have not delivered all of our NR905s yet. This week we are getting another small allocation.

Is this still active?

Quick Reference of Forum Rules
1) Do Not post pricing you found on-line or at a local dealer UNLESS IN A DEALS THREAD.
2) Do Not ask for, or offer, a receipt so people can price match.
3) Do Not say to "Call John Smith at ..." (you know what I mean)
4) Do Not put down someone else's choice in...

Assuming that you're asking if the forum sale is still on... I say yes.

All of Onkyo's new 5 series receivers are hot. And as we have seen so many time before with advanced CE products new hot items are typically in short supply for a few months if not longer.

Thanks Robert.

I believe I spoke to your wife the other day. She was really nice and helpful. I happened to check my credit card online at the same time they were denying the charge. So while Wendy was calling my home, I called into to verify the charge with my credit card and called her to let her know it would be fine.

So far, UPS lists it as a Monday delivery. If someone starts driving REALLY fast, maybe I can still get it Friday.

Thanks Robert,

Dave

Dave, Thanks. Actually we ship via Fed Ex and your NR905 is now scheduled to arrive at your home Monday.

Enjoy!

Albator, not me sir. But I am delayed in responding as I am back in Vegas at a major CE buying show so I don't have frequent Internet availability.

I did receive my 905 and my BD-P1200 on Monday. Everything was beautifully boxed and seems to work perfectly.

I am very pleased with my items and my experience with Value Electronics.

Thanks a lot,
Dave
