This has been a real "tooth pull." I ordered it mid August because Polk had been advertising it in Sound and Vision since May. In August, I got the Sony 75Z9D and Crutchfield said the Polk was on back order waiting for new product release. So I waited, and the Polk release date was moved to Sept, then Oct, then Nov and finally December.
Crutchfield told me in October they'd ordered 50 of them, so anyone who pre-ordered would get first shipment. You might want to call your sales rep and see if you were in their first run.
As for Polk, I have to question their marketing of this soundbar. There are two models, one with surround speakers for $600 and a $500 version without the rear speakers, (just bar and sub.)
They released the less expensive (two piece) model first, and although it was only a few days earlier, you'd think they would offer the $600 Max SR first, encouraging buyers to go for the extra $100.
Anyway, they're both available now, with Polk telling me a few times, "they wanted to get everything right before shipping them out."
Their recent videos on youtube (see above) were a good substitute until the real thing arrived.
