    Does anybody know if these are available yet, and from where? I know they're new and haven't been able to find them. Biggest desire for these are the 3-Zone OUT capabilities. (Can anybody confirm?) Want to be able to simultaneously 1) Watch a movie in the family room 2) Listen to a CD through the kitchen/dining room/living room speakers and 3) Listen to the radio over our home intercom system. I currenty use an STR-DA5ES to handle the above, but now need HDMI options. Thanks in advance. ENV

    Yeah, I googled for them and ended up here... I was reading there were supposed to be out in November but they obviously missed the deadline... I guess wait for CES

    These will be available the last week of January. They will do 3 zones of audio, 2 zones HD video (but not HDMI into 2 zones). It does have 2 HDMI outs, but they are mirrored. The zone 2 component out is the matrix HD Video out. Hope that helps!

    Oh and the internal Radio (tuners) aren't available into Zone 3 on the 3700, only external sources are available into zone 3. The 5700 will allow this.
