I've had one on back order with HiFiBitz since the beginning of March. Anyway, just received the following from them :- We have just been informed by Sony that they have made a decision to discontinue the STR-DB1080. This is due to there being a delay until September on one of the main parts of the unit. They are bringing out a replacement, the STR-DB2000 which was set to be released in September. However they have said that they will fly some into Sony UK for these to be distributed in June. This is a higher Spec model and will be sold at the same price. We can only apologies for the delay and inconvenience this may have caused you. All the information we supply comes direct from Sony UK. We can either cancel your order off our system or change it for the new STR-DB2000 or an alternative model. We will keep you updated as soon as the specification and information is released on the new model which is due the end of May. I've decided to wait - again!
