Those are the cheapest models that are currently available new in stores. You might find a refurbished discontinued model (Panasonic RP82,XP30,XP50 or Denon DVD-1600) sometimes show up cheaper for a very short deal online or on EBAY - thats your only other choice.

Uh, since that model has been discontinued I think you will be waiting a long, long time. Sometimes "back ordered" really translates to "no longer available but we want your business so we will string you along."

Uh, periodically they get some from somehwere. MACmall, PC Mall and Ecost share the same source and divy them up. I was just too late on the last batch of 25. I know very well that they are no tbeing manufactured any longer, but am willing to accept delivery from MACMall at 199.95.


Why on earth would they string me along, maintain my order in their records and never deliver. What possible good does that do them? They have not charged my CC and will not until they ship. If the order is never filled I still have one and just looking for another.

I seriously doubt if there are any more of these available except maybe some refurbs. They have been out of production for over a year. From my experience most sites give the "back order" message when they are out of stock and they don't know if more is coming or not. But they don't want you to just go away, so they let you sit there thinking you will eventually get something even though it will never happen. I honestly hope you get your unit, but I will be very surprised if you do, unless it is a refurb. Good luck.

I kind of knew I might be disappointed, and if it is refurbed, that is fine too. I really do enjoy the RP82 I have and even if a refurbed one might show up, I can (worse case) use it for spare parts.


Luck is what one sometimes needs.

I wonder why that more middle priced players dont have faroudja processing??


I would have bought a denon 2200 universal if it had faroudja processing.


As it was, I couldnt see paying $400 more for it than a 563a pioneer, which I am patiently waiting on UPS to deliver!!
