...OK, Panasonic brings it to you. Here is a pic I got from the Japanese press release. Estimated street date is about 2 weeks according to unconfirmed reports from Panasonic. Aside from 7 channels of amplification and 3 component inputs, it has some other interesting features such as "Dual Amp Technology" and "VGDA" (Variable Gain Digital Amplifier) that you can read about HERE. Looks like it will retail for $399 w/ a street price well below that. This is great news for fans of the Panasonic Digital Receivers.
