    Stopped in the Sony Outlet store in Tracy CA and found the $2000 to be $1100 (Didn't have anything to write on but I am pretty sure about these prices)
    32 FV series $699
    32 FS series $599
    36's add $200 to the 32 price
    they had the 43" and a plasma but don't recall the $$$ but they were good prices
    Don't know if the outlets all stock the same or what

    Why?
    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.
    I am a superhero!
    A very very busy superhero! Who does...things!
    Now get out of here before I tell your mother.

    No! Please say this isn't so. Just a few months ago I spent more than $1,400 ("discounted") on a KV-32FV26, and you're telling me I could've waited it out, hopped up north, and come home with a high def-ready KV-36XBR400 for only $1,100? I feel ill. Something in the back of my head told me I was rushing things when I got the FV-series WEGA. But Zardoz was about to be released on DVD, and I wanted something new to watch it on. Oh, the humanity, the humanity.

    $1400 seems kind of high to me for a 32FV26. That's what I paid for my Panasonic Tau 32" and it's HDTV ready. I looked at the Wega's at the same time and thought that they were around $1100. You sure that's not in Canadian dollars? [​IMG]
    $1100 for a 36" XBR is a ridiculously low price. Don't they normally go for about $2000? Are these refurbs or customer returns? Just curious. I didn't even know that there was a Sony Outlet store in Tracy! [​IMG]

    My Buddy that was with me paid 2k for the same one that was 1.1k.
    It's kind of hard to find in Tracy, it's right there in that I5 205 580 triangle. I don't recall seeing the refurished tag on it. They have a pretty good selection but they won't tell you over the phone.
    Sorry about that Jack...there is one down in Ontario but I have no idea if they carry the same stuff.
    If you go, it's good to write down their MSRP since they don't have it listed...only their price.
    Ever since I got my Wega, all my other TVs look like crap. Wife wouldn't bite
    Oh well, hope someone can take advantage of these great prices

    I'm not disputing the information presented here, but I do find it hard to believe (the 36" wega picture tube alone costs $1100 if you buy via Sony parts). Can anyone else verify this information?

    They don't tell the prices over the phone or advertise (hence the post)
    My heart skipped a couple beats when I saw that price!
    Generally I don't dream about HT equipment, but if anyone else has been to the Tracy (or any other)outlet, speak up.
