Opinions on X4000 vs 4250 please...
I'm considering upgrading from my 3312 to the x4000, as both the 4000 and the 4250 are now available as refurbs for under $1000. My initial inclination is to get the X4000 for the enhanced subwoofer EQ (I do use twin subs), but the refurb 4250 is just a couple hundred bucks more and I could really use the additional amp configuration flexibility of the 4250. I have an Emo XPA-2 for the mains as well as an XPA-5 for the center, rear and surrounds, so the differences in the amp sections of the two AVR's is also not really an issue.
My real question is if the sub EQ of the X4000 wins out over the 4250, or is the 4250 just better all around when it is essentially used only as a pre-amp. Thanks for any input.
