Well, like I said before - if the wholesale cost remains the same as the current cost of the 688, the group buy price will be $200, give or take.

New 688 $200 +/-.
Shipping $15 +/-.

Not having to hear your wife/mother/outlaws complain 'cause they can't figure out how to turn everything on or off or can't get sound to match picture? Priceless!

Do you mean RF/IR?

RF=Radio Frequency
IR=Infra-Red

IR remotes are line of sight, if there's something directly between the remote and the receiver, it won't work. RF sends out a broadcast that can go around obstacles, but is prone to interference. Most electronics use IR remotes.

My A/V receiver uses RF only. Also my 5200 receiver uses it if it is in another room.

Any word yet on availability? A lot of sites are taking pre-orders now... some for under $200 too! (check froogle) I really don't know how they can sell it that cheap. To be honest, I'm not even sure if I trust 'em.

DigitalBuys seems like a safe bet though. They sell on eBay too and have a really clean (if not perfect) record.

I can take a pre-order from you for the 1st X-Wing fighter if you'd like...only $10,000, too!

Unfortunately, there's still no listing for the 880 with the distributor. As soon as there is, I'll hit up the bid desk for a price based on the quantities we're looking at here.
