If anyone is interested, Harman Kardon is apparently clearing out their remaining stock of the DMC-1000 digital media center at an unbelievalbe price of $399 (msrp was $2,999). It includes an upconverting DVD/CD player (1080p via HDMI), a 250 GB HDD expandable via USB, and four zone capability. These are brand new, not refurbs. Go to harmanaudio.com if interested and click on Current Models/Digital Media Centers. Their on-line purchasing was acting up yesterday so you might have to call customer service to order by phone.
