    $229 is already a very good price, I've only seen at Tweeter stores for $249.

    This seems to be a very hard player to find. Of all the major chain retailers in my area (Northeast) onlt PC Richard lists it, and my local store doesn't have any. Hard to find it on the web either. Makes you wonder.

    thanks guys...I've also been having a hard time locating this one. I think I'm going to aim for the Panasonic DVD-RP92 instead

    Tweeter doesn't have the DD-8040 listed on their website but I did see one on display last week in the Tweeter store in Salem NH. The price tag said $279 but I think it goes for $249. I haven't seen it anywhere else around me. Best Buy only carries the DD-6040 locally.

    Yes the 8040 is carried in the Tweeter stores across the country, I haven't seen it any other chain stores - only the cheaper Mitsubishi models. Tweeter also carries the Denon models so its easy to compare them there.

    I see two Tweeter stores listed in New York:
    ALBANY Tweeter
    161 Washington Ave. Ext.
    Albany, NY 12205

    SARATOGA SPRINGS Tweeter
    3072 Rt. 50
    Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

    Why is this machine so hard to get? Either Mitsubishi is doing a lousy marketing job, or there's something wrong with it. None of the national chains that carry Mitsubishi products seem to have it. Something's fishy. Think I'm gonna stick with my Denon 910.

    Those top-rated Panasonic models were hard to get too, most stores just carry the el-cheapo models. So if its hard to find its most likely because its "too good" not bad.
