Hello, Ok on my quest for a 595, since I have been waiting for overa month from the store to get one, I started to call other places. Most places are experiencing some backorder issues. I called Onkyo and they said stores shouldn't be having a problem but that some stores may be in backorder. The guy on the phone gave me some authorized Onkyo dealers online to try out. Upon calling bestpriceaudiovideo.com, I was told that they are out of stock and that the 595 and the 494 have been discontinued. The new models will be out in April. Tomorrow I am caling Onkyo to ask them about this.
