Oh OK....I misread from jump street, I was actually reading Ratpack and was somehow thinking Bugbitten. Thanks for the heads up!

Have to agree on the yammie, best for movies expecially when used with a separate amp, but music is lacking.

Take a good look at the comparative Mits, Sammy and Toshiba. I think that you will find one or more aspect for each where the Sony is better. Of course, there is always the chance that the sets are set up different.

If your son will shop the iternet, he may find a discount of about 20%, maybe more.

I'll be ordering the RX-V4600 this week, can't wait to get this baby!

I currently have the Pioneer Elite VSX-54TX, I'll be moving that puppy upstairs to run my second system system, while the new Yammy will run my main system down in the theater room. Well, the surrounds and rear surrounds anyways. My mains and center channel will be powered by my Outlaw 2200 M-Blocks.

I would be very interested in hearing your comments after you have used it for a while.

I still haven't bought, but, may do so after the Holidays.

Unless you really like to listen to your music very loud, I would wait on ordering the monoblocks. You just may not need them.

Hey Rat, how ya doing?

In responce about the M-Blocks, I already have them/own them, whatever.

After thinking about things, the purchase of the Yammy isn't set in stone yet. But I'm about 95% sure it's what I'll be ordering. It seems to be the most solid choice right now for those with HDMI connections. However, I could be wrong about that one.

Kurt, if you're going to be using those 2200s for a major part of the load you might consider instead the new 2600 which is extremely full-featured(HDMI, etc.)and might serve you just as well at significantly lower cost(available around $900).

Oh, buddy, easy on the Kurt stuff. It's Sutter please.

I haven't gone by my given name in over 15 years (Mostly due to my occupation and privacy reasons). Only time my given name is used is on my checks and other legal related documents.

Anyways, as far as the 2600 goes, well yeah that's true, and I have been giving some thought to that, so that's certainly not something that's out of the equation.

Interesting enough, a few have recommended that I get the 2600 instead of the 4600, maybe, even, the model below the 2600.

I have learned/ decided a few things now that I have had the Sony SXRD for a few weeks.

A. You really don't want to do your video conversion in your audio receiver. The BEST place to do it is in the HDTV itself. It has all the algorithms and it knows what it wants to see in terms of data. Second best place to to the conversion is the DVD player, but you really don't want to do it there unless you just have to.

B.Best to hook all your HDMI cables directly to your HDTV. For the time being, forget about HDMI switching in the audio receiver. Some of the brands are having problems with their HDMI interfaces. My Sony HDTV has 2 HDMI inputs and I am only using 1 of them (DVD player). Cable TV goes right into the cable TV input.

Bottom Line: I am still thinking about the situation.
