Apart from the tidbits from CES?

J and R electronics say they have it in store as of today, but not available online. Lists almost all the features but not the crossover point for small setting. Anyone seen one or know the crossover point?

I'm interested as well. I emailed a local dealer to ask. For $399 I think its a steal and perhaps the Denon 2200's equal but I won't confirm that until I see one with my own eyes.

Hrm Dealer says its $499. I wonder who is accurate.. J&R or the dealer I talked to..

Every reference on the web says 399$. However, I suspect dealers will try to sell it for more, initially, until word gets out. I plan to tell my dealer that it's available at J&R for 399$, so if he wants the sale... (He's been very good to me so if it's 10-20$ more, I'll pay for the extra service I've received, but not 100$).

Actually I just found out. The dealer double checked and said that the MSRP is $399. He was incorrect(I don't think he was lying to me because I trust his credintials(sp?).
