    It seems like this player is not really available anywhere anymore. I went to my local fry's and they were sold out - and onecall no longer lists this on their website.

    Hell - even the authorized etailer that panasonic lists the model as discontinued and that they no longer carry it.

    Were these models really discontinued or just in high demand? I can find some places online but they're charging 250+ for a 229 MSRP product. Seems kind of lame.

    i went to shopping.yahoo.com and typed in rp82. Bunch of places supposedely carry them but their prices are all over the place and i'd rather buy it at a respectable place that's well known. Any suggestions?

    I did the same thing[​IMG] All of them were out also...man, that sux! Hmm... I now started looking up the ladder a bit at the higher end ones...(denon 1600-3800) reading the 135 post thread below has me wondering what to do[​IMG] I heard the 72 has port problems, so forget that...but according to avs the denon 1600, and the rp82 are darn near the same unit...except for the price[​IMG](250 vs 375) drop me a line...I'll post here if anything comes up! tom

    I bought a cp-72 a couple weeks ago from CC and it is working flawlessly.

    Panasonic under-estimated the popularity and demand of this unit. Call the Panasonic customer service number and they will give you a number of a company (I misplaced it) that will sell them to you. They are expecting a couple of shippments. One in mid January and another in February. The sales guy told that would be it for the RP-82. I bought mine from anoter member of this site.
