Exact same story as me. It's like they're paying me to own this great player

I assume because of the price drops, that they won't be selling them soon, and I want to get this to replace the my A1 and PS3. But I'm afraid that if I buy it now when it's available, they won't update it for the audio in May, and I'll be out of luck for returning it because it will be over 30 days.
Samsung sources have continuously stated (but not openly) that a firmware upgrade in May will address audio codecs; whether they'll bitstream, internal decode, or both remains to be seen. I bought my player on good faith that at the very least TrueHD would expand beyond it's current stereo limitation.
