And yah i am pretty sure it is a typo.. especially given the 6805 was listed that way as well.
I'm in Westchester...and I go downtown sometimes when I have to go to Columbia...
I haven't paid too much attention to the cameras and computers too much in the store, so that's probably why I overlooked their price increases there. I mostly look at their audio stuff, and you won't believe the kind of low prices they have there. They typically match the ultra-low prices of sound stores in NJ such as SoundCity and 6Ave. Sometimes they are even below the prices of unauthorized internet resellers (even though J&R is authorized). They have high end receivers at 50% the MSRP, speakers 30% below the MSRP. etc. Of course, these are the products that they only sell in stores and not on their website. For example, the Pioneer VSX-49TXi receiver retails at $4500, J&R has it (in-store only) for $2500.
