By how much, and is it across the board on all their brands?

Not all models.
Here are some examples:
B&W 802D3 $26,000 --> $28,000 (802D4)
Denon X6700 $3,100 --> $3,300
Marantz AV7706 $3,000 --> $3,200
Marantz AV8805A $5,000 --> $5,500

Looks like a roughly 10% pricing increase across the board. Do you have pricing information on the Polk Reserve R700s?

Looks like no price increase on the Polk Reserve series.

Good thing I just picked up the R200 and 607 S2s recently then. I imagine we'll be seeing similar price increases outside of just Sound United :/

This is ridiculous honestly. All these companies keep raising the price and before you know it there wont be a median income of people anymore. Either you'll be poor or rich. Can afford or living in a trash can. Every time I get close to enough money to buy an AVR I've been saving for, A) its out of stock or B) its gone up in price. At this rate I should just hang up the idea of owning a legit surround sound. Just stick to 1080p and my budget a$$ 5.1....

Just my 2 cents.

It was only a few years ago those Denon 3400s were $549 on clearance. And that seemed to happen every November.

Right.
My Marantz was on sale/closeout for 900 in July '18.
The 6015, new is 2 Large. (I think the 6012 MSRP was 1599.)
I'm expecting the next generation will be at least 2199 if they release this year.

I'd wager they looked at what they're having difficulty finding parts for and raised the price of the products accordingly.

Could be random, but it doesn't seem like it.
