I get emails from them almost daily with "specials" this time of year.
You should create a "wish list" on their site, (if you haven't already) and check it daily, as the prices change quite often.
I would definitely check on Amazon on Black Friday. Last year I got some fantastic deals on HT gear.
Yeah, I found about that sweet deal from Amazon... maybe not even an hour after it expired. I could not believe it myself.
Anyway, I had already ordered mine from 6th Ave just the day before, reduced to $371 + taxes as some kind of pre-Black Friday special deal. The Amazon lightning deal was way better, of course, but I comfort myself thinking that $400 for a receiver that was going for more than $1,000 when it was first released it's not half bad a deal, either.
(actually, the Amazon deal was from them, too)
I just hope it doesn't turn out to be B Stock or whatever.
