Just picked one up last night so the deal is still good. Its a November 2012 build that had FW 2.07 now upgraded to 2.09. I wonder what is driving such a great unadvertised sale? Maybe Pio is releasing a new model soon?
I too am looking to replace an older player. I though when you were looking at mid level to higher end Blurays players with HDMI outputs to AV receivers that decode those loss-less formats the player needed to have an option of bypassing the players decoder and output the raw data via a bitstream?Am I mistaken?
