Try ecost.com. I bought mine from there - they almost always have it available for less than $450 plus shipping and handling (the handling charge is a bit steep, but the total price is still typically less than anywhere else). Also, when I ordered mine, it was in stock and shipped immediately and I got in 2 days.
Locally, I could only find it at Tweeter (and they were charging list price for it). Best Buy and Circuit City didn't carry it.
The reason it is on clearance at Good Guys, is because they are no longer going to carry the Panasonic line. They will carry their phones and small items, but no larger electronics (tv, dvd, replay etc).
On a good note though, I also saw the RP-91 at my local Good Guys for $499.00 and they had a stack of them.
My last order for RP91's was placed mid-April. First I was told stock would be coming in mid-May. Then I was told late May. Today I'm told they didn't receive any and now there is no date in the computer!
Since this was a carry-over product for the 2002 model year, all I can say is that it doesn't look good.
I have no problem getting RP91 from Panasonic US. As a matterof fact I just received two black units. They also usually have gold units in stock all the time. Maybe Panasonic US is getting most of inventory and there isn't many left for Panasonic Canada.
Looks like ecost hast them for $435 + s/h. They have rather stirct return policy and a 15% restocking fee. they seem fine, if you have no problems or issues to deal with them, but not so good, if something comes up wrong.
Are there any other etailers with a similar price and perhaps better policies?
