Yeah, like JD says, at a store like Best Buy there will probably not be any discounts until the new models are in stock and then they want to clear out inventory. To get in on a sale at Best Buy you basically have to circle like a shark and pounce during a small window of opportunity. You might be able to find a good deal on an open box model (which would still carry full warranty).

Also many people who own now X4000 fill start to sell them so I will be one of them, mine X4000 is only 8 months old. I think when X4100 hit market there will be a lot X4000 for a good deal.

I called him last week for a price on the Marantz 7008 and it was a good deal...now I've changed my plans and will have to call him back for an X4000 and a Parasound P5.

Reason I ask: can't decide if I like it or not. Have b & w 683 series 2 fronts, HTM 62 centre and ds3 rears. Really like fuller sound with it in, but slightly muddier dialogue annoying.

Doesn't matter what others prefer, it's your setup. Note however, you can reduce the effect by using the Reference Level Offset set to 10db which will help to improve center channel dialogue especially for TV and music.

Speaker/sub distance/level settings are all taken based only on the mic #1 position. So try running Audyssey again ensuring the 1st mic position is no closer than 1-2' from the back of the couch (if high back).
It's a psb sub I've had for probably 15 years and have run set up many times on two different pioneer receivers and it never was placed at over 2x it's actual distance, usually plus maybe 25%.

The levels weren't correct needed to level them all by probably 2 to 3 dB.

I believe that the mic was above the top of my chairs, both times.

Thanks for the advice.

Is it normal to have to change the Audio Delay on the receiver?

Before I was running my HTPC (aka Bluray player) directly to my TV through an HDMI matrix and there was no audio delay. Now I've added the AVR-X4000 and there is very large and noticeable audio/video sync issue.

Is it normal to have to manually tweak the audio delay on the receiver?

I know it supports "HDMI Auto Lip Sync" but I don't know if my TV supports it... (Vizio M651d-A2R) Apparantly it doesn't though because the video is incredibly out-of-sync...
