Sound Center in Mississippi has been selling the KN6500 all year for 2495.00 - They are an authorized Panasonic/Technics dealer. I had been talking to them after being referred by the Technics corporate office. I just spoke with them today (Jimmy - the owner) and he told me Jan. 10 the price is going up by 700$ - didn't know why - but I found it interesting. He has told me they have sold like crazy all year. Also has a money back/not satisfied guarantee - so he says.
