I just saw this on Pioneer's site today:http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...H-K.Kuro?tab=D
This doesn't seem to fit in the line at all. It is like a VSX-919 on steroids.
Only 3HDMI inputs...
Full S-Video inputs...
12 Volt Trigger...
More Digital audio inputs...
It says normally $900 marked down to $499?
Is this something from another market that they are trying to sell in the USA?
It says it is a promotional price, with less than 100 in inventory...
