Interesting. I've bought 2 PRS-505s at a physical Sony Style store in the past 6 weeks - one just last Friday. Both of them were only $299.99. I don't know why they are selling for $50 more online. In the store, here in Burlington, Ontario (yes, I know that my profile says Toronto - but nobody outside of the area has a clue where Burlington is...), they are (or very recently were) still at the lower price.
The other thing I find slightly odd is that the sale person I talked to the first time told me that, in Canada at least, they are only sold in the Sony Style stores. So, either he was misinformed, not telling me the truth, or there's something else going on with nix.com. In any case, I just looked at that site, and they're now listing at $349.99 there.
I suppose it's conceivable that prices went up by $50 in the past 4 days?
