    Hi guys had one of these on order for 1 month now with empire direct, whent with them as they had a buy now pay next year but the way its going it will be next year before i see it :) after phoning them today they had NO expected delivery date and even phonedPioneer who also had NO expected delivery date,

    i am in a dilemma do i wait? do i got elsewhere? but the biggest thing is do i still get the 757AI as i have heard of a new range of Pioneer DVD players when are they due should i wait? i am though without a DVD player which i am really ****** about.

    Any other stores do interest free finance on the net?

    OUCH! Novmber is such a long time away and i have so many DVDs to watch hmmm but if i did pay £600 for 757AI now then it drops i would be annoyed, or if the new much better model were the same price i would also be annoyed lol BUT if its much more exspensive and i cant afford it i would be annoyed at waiting :(

    Buy a cheapie player to tide you over and replace when the newer models become available. You could use the cheapie as a backup or use it in another room afterwards. (I'm assuming your dvdless at the mo)

    I was going to get a 757 or Denon 2900. I decided on a 565. Easier to spend 200 quid now and buy a newer player in a years time when the new fads hit the shelves (dvi, blue ray etc). Things are moving too fast for me, don't feel comfortable spending £700/800 now only for it to be selling for £300/£350 6 months down the line (Denon 2800 MkII etc)

    Ordered mine from av-land. Got it the next day :) DVD-A, SACD, NTSC Prog scan. Only had it a few days but I'm mighty impressed so far.

    hmmm, and i thought plasma buying was hard, this is worse :)
    i am definately willing to spend £600 on the 757AI as i know it will last me a good long time, i recently sold my Sony DVPS7700 for £300 and that lasted me a good 3 years,

    but the only thing that stops me is not necesarily the better features but if the 757AI was to drop by say £100 and the 868AI was to launch at £600 - £650 i would be annoyed for not waiting, but as there is no news on this player whatsoever it makes the decision extremly hard

    Hi Mac,

    The DV-668 and DV-868AVi are supposedly being released in Sweden this month, so I'm sure they'll be out in the UK fairly soon. I think the US Elite DV-58AVi will have the same spec as the 868AVi (apart from PAL compatibility) and that $1600 mentioned is only a suggested retail price - street price should be much lower. Hope this helps.

    Steve
