Harman Kardon BDP 10 Blu-Ray Player Seems Expensive

Looking through the spec sheet for the BDP 10 Blu-ray player from Harman Kardon, I can't see why this thing costs $999. The latest players from Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, LG... and pretty much every other manufacturer, offers pretty much the same for half the price or less. So what exactly are you paying for?

Here are the specs:

• Disc formats: Blu-Ray Disc media, including BD-R/RE, BD-Live and BonusViewTM, DVD/DVD+R/DVD-RW, CD/CD-RW, MP3 or JPEG files on disc • Audio formats: LPCM, MP3, Dolby® Digital, Dolby TrueHD, DTS®, DTS-HD Master AudioTM and WMA. • RJ-45 connection for internet access • IR-remote in/out jacks for system integration • HDMI output (V.1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HDTM bitstreams and high-resolution video) • Front-panel USB jack for additional BD-Live memory or MP3 or JPEG file playback • Optical and coaxial digital audio outputs • Dimensions (H x W x D): 66mm x 440mm x 352mm • Weight: 3.7kg

Anything there that makes you want to spend enough cash for two PS3s?
