Some anonymous online sources are quoted saying the S50 had been delayed possibly due to an action by the RIAA. I have been on the phone with Circuit City and Crutchfield this evening and they feel completely confident that the rumor has no merit. Crutchfields for instance, "a shipment is due on or around the 25th" and that shipment is SOLD OUT to preorders, they are now accepting orders for future shipments. CircuitCity.com Confirmed as well -will be SOLD OUT immediately from preorders! (CC could not comment on your local CC store) The S50 is the MUST HAVE gift this holiday season...I strongly suggest you pre-order as soon as possible if you want one...
The new date we are hearing is Nov 17th
