also, do not give up on this. the receiver is INCREDIBLE!!! if they do discontinue this, it will only be because it has so many features and performs so well that they will rename or rebadge these and sell for a LOT more....and they would have no problem getting more money for this beast!!!
yeah I looked all over the net, noone has them in stock, I'm in the Boston area, BB actually told me they were being discontinued and someone else told me there was a "national backorder", I almost bought one earlier from some outfit in NY that had 'hidden' insurance fees and despite the website saying it had a full manufacturers USA warranty the guy called to tell me it had none and tried to sell me one, canceled...
well. i dunno what to tell ya. they are easy to get here in Windsor, Ontario. Best Buy has 4 in stock, and 2 other stores i know have a couple each...but i'm sure once the secret gets out about how great this item is, theywill be gone very quickly!!! i'm still thrilled i got mine for $500.00 Canadian 1 month old from a guy who sold his entire HT setup. what a deal i got! i'm THRILLED!!!!!!!!
well I'm glad I canceled the order I had with bigondigital as they seemed like a pack of ripoff artists and I called JR and ordered one up for 430, free shipping, but I'll be waiting a week or two until it's in stock there. plasmahouse winds up being 435 shipped and they're not an authorized retailer either, I guess it's worth waiting for JR considering.
I'm waiting too. It was shown "in stock" for a brief time at Vann's last week, so I ordered. They called the next day to apologize & say they ran out. They promised it'd ship yesterday, but that didn't happen. Someone mentioned in another thread that OneCall expects them in September. Oh well.
Well I was going to get one through J&R and just wait since they had them backordered for a couple weeks but electronics expo had a few in stock this morning for 420 shipped so I ordered one up before they disappeared, probably out by now. Appreciate the responses though.
