I bought this for that price yesterday but I noticed that it dropped to $535 on amazon so I cancelled the order and then repurchased it for the lower price. Since I live in PA it saved me the sales tax.
This unit was released for sale in June of 2011 so I think this is the closeout price. It appears that Onkyo is not going to replace this with another unit as the x500 models were released in the summer of 2012. I have the 7100 model and I can not complain about its performance so the 9400 is a steal at this price. The receiver is probably more expensive by itself so you will be getting the speaker kit for free.
Onkyo has a similar speaker set but it has a smaller subwoofer.
