I've wanted to purchase a Kenwood THD7AG for several weeks but the place 
that I usually purchase from has been saying (on their web site) that 
the D7 is out of stock for more than a month.  I called them and I was 
told that Kenwood is basically noncommittal and perhaps even evasive 
when asked about future THD7 shipments.  Did anyone who attended Dayton 
happen to engage any Kenwood reps in a conversation about the THD7?  If 
so would you tell us what you heard?

The THD7AG is presently listed on the Kenwoodusa'a web site.

Inquiring minds would like to know what is going on here...

My list of possibles are RoHS compliance issues (aka tin whiskers are in 
your future), someone is trying to avoid the classic Osborne-I to 
Osborne-II sales and marketing debacle prior to introducing a follow on 
to the D7, or perhaps the market is too small to justify continued
