Klipsch has a new Flagship floor-stander, the Palladium P39F, which will set you back $15,000/pair. You'll have to wait until CES for six other models in the range, including the designs needed to fill out a home theater array, but I'm sure Klipsch will sell you five, six, or seven P39Fs if you're in a hurry.

I didn't get in to see the new 1080p Marantz VP-15S1 today. The wait was too long, but I'll have a better chance tomorrow. In the meantime, the projector is available either au natural or with an optional anamorphic lens. The PJ itself is half the price of Marantz' VP-11S1 flagship ($20,000), which remains in the line.

Integra has a range of new AV receivers, but its most interesting introduction is probably the $1600 DTC-9.8 pre-pro. A quick look suggests that it features the same bells and whistles as the company's flagship THX Ultra2 flagship receiver, minus only amplifiers. There's also a matching amplifier, the DTA-9.4, at $3000.

Pioneer's new flagship receiver, the SC-09TX is loaded with all the bells and whistles, including a display screen, 10 channels of 140Wpc ICE digital amplification that may be combined for 7 channels at 200W per, HDMI 1.3a, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio decoding, and THX certification. Reportedly four years in development, it won't ship until January 2008, so that will give you time to gather the $7000 you'll need to buy it.
