Not sure if anyone's tried this (the thread is way too long for me to have read all of it :P), but Digital Home (i.e. JB HiFi online) reportedly have (low) stocks @ $2996, including free delivery and installation:

That's the going ticket price and delivery and installation is 'free' anyway

OK so I purchased mine today at DJs Adelaide. Naturally I was slightly concerned about availability, the helpful sales guy double checked with Pioneer on the phone while I was there and it seems I was lucky - today is the last day for DJs to put in their requests for allocation with Pioneer. Whether this means no more for them, or no more across the board, and whether this is just adelaide, I am not sure.

Can anyone confirm when the shipment of Pioneers is meant to arrive. I am hoping to get one before 8/8/08 Olympics. Willing to pay $2700.
More than happy to pay that money if I can find a retailer with stock available now.

You are joking arn't you???! :rolleyes:

Pioneer use contractors to do the delivery and install. The guys that did mine have their own Home Theatre Install business as do the others i would assume.

Most stores generally have them in stock ( depending on the model - you will have trouble finding a 508xda)

I believe Pioneer use contractors as well as their own staff. My installers were Pioneer people with Pioneer shirts and Pioneer splashed all over their professional looking van. I even asked them and they said they were Pioneer employees so they obviously use contractors to supplement their own installers.

What's the difference? well I don't really know as I have not dealt with the contractors but I feel better knowing I had Pioneer personel install my 508XDA.

Funnily enough the guys who installed mine had Pioneer Polo's on too :P

I wonder if they do a quick change before installing the different brands :lol:

spalmills & marsupial,

Your installers were not Joel and Peter by any chance.

As they both came in what looked like a brand new white Pio van and the shmick Pio Polo tops when they installed my 508xda.

Bought myself a Sony Bravia X 46in.

Couldn't wait for the XDA, but there was a massive SOLD sign on the floor stock...the surgeon paid 2478 for it.

From a Sydney Metro Myer

Get on to them and find out how far away your TV is. The 508xda is an awesome screen. I don't think anything else on the market in the $2500-3000 bracket comes close.

I for one have not heard of any for this model. Have 5 friends who have the 507 & 508 all very happy.

So far only the 7 & SBS "synching" problem - but from indications in another thread the fix is being tested and should be available sometime this week. Apart from that, this panel is FANTASTIC :D

If you use the "audio out", you may your amp to put a delay on the signal. The internal speakers don't have the issue.

...i found a Hardly Norman in Sydneys north that had a display 50XDA ...he wanted $2999 for it, even after i stated that this is what was being offered for brand new ones from the like of JB Hifi (not that they had stock of course)... he wouldn't budge, claiming the RRP was still $4399 or something and that it was a massive saving off ORP. This was after spotting another demo that was sold for $2450 or thereabouts in Myer in the same shopping area. :huh:

They are great TV's but $3k for a second hand demo model thats been running for 12hrs a day for the last 6 months, after peeps were getting them for ~$2600-2800 new? Hmm.
