I'm a LotR nerd to some degree. And I thought I was one of very few people to actually like Hobbit 1 and 2. But I despised #3 (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=3)...

I thought this would be the best (read: cheapest) way to do this but apparently they won't send to US Addresses? I have bought stuff from ~5 diff Amazon sites before and have never seen that.

There is a $200 difference in the MSRP between the X2000 and the 5008. What does that Marantz have/do to justify that?
