Amazon "Out of Stock" question (ZVOX-555 Sound System order)

I've had my eye on the ZVOX-555 sound bar/sound system for awhile now. The product usually sells for $399.99, and sometimes Amazon sells it, sometimes a third-party store sells it (via Amazon). Over the past few weeks of checking on the item in my Wish List, it was frequently being sold by a third-party store rather than by Amazon directly.

http://www.amazon.com/ZVOX-555-Low-P.../dp/B0055FZIZW

This item is now listed for $360.99, but it is "Temporarily Out of Stock", and the sales description says "Shipped from and sold by Amazon.com."

This price was the lowest I've seen this item sold for, so I ordered one. When the product comes back into stock, am I...

1) Guaranteed that the price will be $360.99? (I'm 99.99% sure that the answer is yes)

2) Guaranteed that the seller will be Amazon, and not a third-party store? (This is the question I'm not too sure about).

Should be sold by Amazon at 360.99. Whenever it comes back into stock. Was there any estimate for a timeframe? I am not sure how long Amazon will keep an order open for an out of stock item, that isnt a preorder.

There was no mention of a time frame. Since I've been watching it for weeks on my Wish List, I've seen it go in and out of stock several times. When it would come back in stock, it would sometimes be sold by Amazon, but sometimes it would be sold by a third-party electronics store. I expect it to be back in stock within a day or two. Hopefully from Amazon.

Yes and yes.

When Amazon isn't expecting stock soon, they won't let you order it.

I received an email this morning saying that the product just shipped, from Amazon, at this price, and that it should arrive next week.

Thanks for the responses, guys.
