Rat,

I agree with you on that, however, I have a front projector, and well, most don't come with a plethora of inputs. If I decide to run things via component cables, then I'm fine there, for my projector has enough component inputs to allow me to do just that, otherwise, I'll have to hook up everything via my receiver, then run the receiver to my projector.

On a side note: Anyone know if the 4600 & 2600 comes in silver? I've seen pics of the 4600 in silver, but can't seem to find any place that sells them, which is making me wonder if the silver units aren't sold in the US. I've checked Yamaha's website, but their site totally sucks in that regard. They never specify what finishes their products come in, non like Onkyo and Denon, who do.

Can't really speak to front projectors because I haven't researched them.

However, one would suspect that you wouldn't want a "mess" of cables run to it. So, in your specific case, maybe swithching in the receiver makes sense.

Would 2 HDMI inputs be enough or would you want 3 HDMI inputs just to be on the safe side. That third input narrows the number of HDMI switching receivers.

Rat, in my case I probably could get by with 2 HDMI connections. Was going after 3 just to play things safe. One never knows when a third one might come in handy. However, has I said, I could probably get by with 2.

I take it no one has an answer to this one?

Sorry, I have not researched that area. You might call one of the larger distributors and see what they say.

I would also be interested in knowing the answer since my new HDTV and OPPO DVD are in silver.

I tell you, if I was buying right now, a 2600 as a pre and some good seperate power amps ( outlaw, NAD whatever) would be an excellent choice.

I love my 4600, but the 2600 has everything as well gadget wise, cheaper, and you'll be better off with seperate power amps

Newf,

That's pretty much what I've decided to do. I think I'm going to purchase the 2600, use it's amps to drive my QS8's, and my Outlaw 2200 M-Blocks to drive my M80's and VP150.

If you decide on the 2600, I would be interested in your specific comments on that unit as well.

There is an old say that goes something like this: "when is the last time that you got MORE than you paid for?"

I am wondering what the REAL differences are between the 2600 and 4600??
