    I've noticed this on a number of items. I believe they do it when an item is about to be discontinued or they are currently unsure. Either way why not just remove it from the site or make it temporarily unavailable?

    I had a CD on order with Amazon for 2 1/2 years and it did eventually come in. I'm a patient man; it beat my previous Amazon long term order by 1 1/2 years.

    13 months for London Sinfonietta "Undine" (a DG recording so not an obscure label).
    2 1/2 years for Thin Lizzy "Vagabonds Of The Western World" (Decca).

    It's a system "feature" - it means they don't have any visibility of delivery dates, but the Purchasing chap has to enter something ...so they always use 5/5/15.

    They are more popular then iphones, better be fast to be in with a chance :P

    Can't spell the company name worth a dang but what about llyama ??

    They do pretty good monitors ( assuming I spelt the name correctly ) lol

    Doesn't have to be this model as they do other ones but here is an example of one from insights website
