I think we already traded PMs about this. Otherwise I apologize for missing your post here. I wasn't subscribed to the posting and didn't notice your reply.
Yes, the unit is still for sale.
After consulting with Marantz upper management, I finally got an answer on warranty. Their policy is that, unlike current production models where you'd get full warranty starting from the purchase date (since I am an authorized dealer), discontinued models have their warranty period start from the dealer purchase date. So, while I don't agree with this (and should have paid attention and sold off the theater room stuff that wasn't being used long ago when Ryan was born), there is still warranty on this piece. It just isn't the full 3 years of warranty left. It started just before Ryan was born when I bought the unit. So it's got a little less than a year left.
With that warranty situation in mind, and in an effort to stop being so lackadaisical about selling some of my demo stuff, I'm stepping up efforts to get this box out of my inventory storage closet. I am dropping the price to $700 plus shipping. No fees for credit card or paypal.
Thanks for looking and your interest. Please PM me to discuss further if you are interested. Thanks!
