    Anyone know if it's available yet? I'll be the first one on the block to try it. I heard any day now but still not showing up anywhere yet.

    A dealer locally to me will be letting me know via email when it is available. Ultimate didn't have any in the system at all even for preorder. The salesguy didn't know anything about it. The smaller dealer knew about it but had some wrong pricing which I corrected him on.

    I'm pretty excited for this player myself.

    I'm going to try to go to the Son et Image show in Montreal this weekend, and check the player out. If I learn any details other than what's already at J and R, I'll post them early next week.

    It could be a very good player. It is a little on the light side though and that is my main concern. I wonder how good the audio can be with a 7lb unit? The DCDi video will be a huge selling point.

    How about bass management? Nobody at Yamaha seems to know about it.
