Available for pre-order - stock expected next week. Werbsite states £349 but I was sent an email (from Marc Helliwell) to say pre-launch special offer £299. Unlike the x08 series, this 3D AV receiver has full networking capabilities, DLNA, flac, Napster, last.fm etc etc.
Also direct iPod / iPhone connectivity via USB
It gets better - I asked for a package deal with Boston Acoustics SoundWare 5.1 and 30m QED micro cable, and was quoted £550. Cheapest online price for receiver and speaker set alone is £613 as far as I can see - cable is worth another £50 (with quite some margin I am sure).
Seems a reasonable deal considering all other retailers have the 509 on pre-order for £349.
Hope this helps someone - I suppose you will have to phone up to fix this deal!
