    I am getting my dealers Plus Piano 3100 as soon as he gets his 3200 demo unit. On their web page they have extened the preorder deadline from July 20th to the 31st. Has anybody heard if they have in fact pushed back the release date on the 3200's? I'm so anxious to get my hands on the 3100! The theater is pretty much put together and sitting idle...

    i haven't heard anything on the release date for the 3200's. are you buying the dealers 3100 demo unit? Plus has lowered the price to $2699 on remaining new 3100's and told dealers to sell their demo units for $1899.
