The THX AAA 789 is being sold new by Amazon. What's the catch?

Drop.com won't have another shipment until October, so how does Amazon have it? What is the catch? Does it come without a warranty or something?

The catch might be, that it will take ages to deliver. Was about to place an order on Amazon/Shenzen Audio and the prospective delivery might have been as late as August, no fast delivery options. Placed the same order at Apo Audio which have it imported from Shenzen as well on Friday evening and it arrived this Monday morning (express shipping for 8 Dollars)

$20 more on Amazon. And I just got mine thru Drop w a 1 week wait ...
I think you are making too much of this. Drop has been selling via Amazon for a while. It's very likely they did not expect the sales volume resulting from the price drop and they can't keep up with demand. If they already had a lot contracted for Amazon distribution it's not like they can just recall that and sell it themselves.
