I find this dirac process to be very tedious and boring but others seem to really enjoy it.

From the Emoforums... they contacted Emotiva about the price and they will honor the price for all orders placed by 5/1.

While supplies last -> don't worry about that. :)

No issues with the Krell?

I wouldn't expect any since it's a much more expensive piece with a much more prestigious name.
