    I'm interested in getting the Panasonic RP-91. I've been quoted $629 locally, and was thinking that this was a real high price. Any thoughts on this, or suggestions on where to look?
    Thanks!
    (I tried the search, but it was down.)

    My local dealer (click on link below) is an auth. Panasonic dealer. Email them and they should take good care of you.

    My dealer of choice (especially if you live in So-Cal, I highly recommend them): www.yawaonline.com

    I purchased mine from MoreAudioVideo.com for $471 shipped. My only complaint was that the player was not shipped double boxed. Luckily, the unit arrived undamaged.

    Saw it at Sound City for $480. I've always been extremely impressed with their service and prices.

    I got mine with a group buy at hometheaterspot.com from Jason at OneCall. Price was a little higher, but they are an authorized dealer, so you get the US warrantee, not the Canadian one. Also double boxed, two day delivery, and they HAVE them, not out of stock, like many other sites. $.02

    Got mine from etronics.com for $474 delivered (3-day UPS). Ground UPS would have saved another $10 ($464 delivered). The unit arrived double boxed and in excellent condition. Etronics.com offers a 30-day money back guarantee (no refunds on shipping charges). Mine included a US warranty.
    Awesome player! Just watched Toy Story 2 last night and was most impressed with the image, especially the lack of any chroma problems. Thank you Panasonic!

    Is there a big difference,between the RP 61 and RP 91? The 91 has a built in decoder, which most of us would bypass. So wouldn't the 61 be the better choice?

    No, the 61 is missing two key features, including a dual digital output and scaling in progressive mode.
    There are a bunch of other features like DVD-RAM etc, but those are largely irrevelant to most people.
