... a demo unit AVR 520... I can wait til the new ones come in next week and exchange mine for one in the box... OR... ...hold it til September (when the AVR 525/530 comes out) and pay $50 Cndn more and take that... OR... Make my mind up once and for all in September on the AVR 8000 (or yikes!) the 9000. Not allowed to say the price (sworn) but let's say they are making a "limited margin" (good connection!). Life is good!
