Same info here, from our regional factory rep.
I can't wait for this piece. (Wish it was cheaper, but oh well.) To answer a few questions asked in this thread:
1. There will be a network card available as an add-on. (Rep said "I'm guessing around $200, but that's a guess.")
2. Auddessey was not included, according to the folks at Arcam, for precisely the same reason many of you guessed. Namely, proper professional system setup is simply better
. And for $4-5k, your dealer damn well better be at your house, helping with setup. (And lets all be honest: we're all going to tweak our gear for 6 months after purchase. So why muddle up the signal path for a 'feature' that's going to get over-ridden by the customer 99% of the time.)
3. BD player by summer '09.
Can't wait for this thing to hit.
