Default Holy Crap!! Denon Blu-Ray Player is Going to Be Priced At Over $3000!!!!

WOW!!!
So the long awaited Denon Blu-Ray player is supposedly coming to Japan in March and will be priced at over a bankbook-busting $3000! Get ready for that 2nd mortgage everybody. You'll need it!

For $3000, it better do a lot more than play movies. It better be able to make dinner, clean the house and do my homework.

well the weakass US dollar is unfortunately a reality. I knew this was of course playing into it, but is this the same model expected for US release? Do you know Donut?

Donut that sentence as your sig. is AWESOME!

Anyway I suspect this will be no problem for the Japanese. They'll just take out a second generation mortgage to pay for it. ;P
