If your like me and must have your electronics before the other guy on the block do yourself a favor and contact AVS, they will definitely take care of you. As of this morning I thought I would be waiting like everyone else in some huge pre order line, NOPE, AVS got me my Pearl TODAY! This was my first dealings with them and I can't say enough good things about Alan and AVS, probably because I am still in shock that I OWN A PEARL. While everyone else is trying to see the Pearl demo at CEDIA I'm looking at mine in my living room aaahhahah, it almost feels evil.
Over the course of the weekend I will post my early review and screenshots. If anyone has any specific questions let me know.
