Phat Performance are selling them for $599 and free shipping if that helps anyone decide. Still too much for my taste.

I was planning on getting one, until I found out they are the same power as the 250w amps, just 2 more channels added which is why they call it a 500w now.

'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

That 500w amp can be bridged with 2 speakers, using 4ohm speakers.
That would give you 250w per speaker.
