Lower Prices on Amazon
Even though the devices just went on sale, you can already find lower prices on Amazon. Remember, buying from Pioneer means you have to add sales tax and shipping to that price. Also, some models like the AVIC-8100NEX can only be ordered over the phone.
Amazon's lowest prices are listed below. Some devices maybe sold by third-party sellers. Click each link for the latest price, and sales tax & shipping information (free in most cases).
AVIC-5100NEX: Currently Not Available
Pioneer has a list of authorized dealers that may also have the receivers for sale already. For full details on that and more information about each product visit Pioneer's website.
