I got my 5009 on 12/23 from an authorized dealer here in South Florida for much
less than 2500.
But I agree about giving business to CP also. Plus my places internet price is over $2500.
I am currently using my 5009 as a pre/pro with my Sherbourn amp. I may try the amp in the 5009 over the weekend to see how it does with my ML Vistas.
I really wish Onkyo would release the 5509 here in the US soon as I would love to have one. I would especially like to use the XLR outputs. I am thinking about grabbing the Integra 80.3 but it ultimately does not make sense to me to jump on the Integra when I can have the 5009 with the amps and all the same bells and whistles for a price cheaper than the 80.3.
There are places that still have the 5508 (CP I believe) but I got such a nice price on the 5009 that I am concerned I am going to get burned and the 5509 will get released 45-60 days after jumping on the 5508.
Do I love to hate or hate to love this hobby?
Having said all of my rambling here, I do like the 5009 thus far. It is my first receiver in over 15 years that has not been a Denon. My last being a 4308 which I just relocated to my bedroom.
