Purchase made at a local place in the Orlando area called Absolute Sound. I had the price down to $3150 but they were having an "invite only" sale on Thursday which brought it down to $3000.

In the hour I was there, they easily sold four of the 530s and one of the 730s. These were new not floor models. It was kind of funny since they had a Mits rep on hand and they were using the side by side comparison with a Mits showing the 530's superior stretch mode.

I didn't catch the model # but there was a 73" Mits floor model on sale for $4000 from $8000.
