Aaron, that sounds about right extrapolating from my experience. I have my AVR-3311CI (driving 7 speakers), an AMP-100 (driving 4 speakers), and a TiVo Premiere Elite all on battery-backup outlets...

Once you get the X900B properly calibrated, it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on the TRILUMINOS vs. HX950's OptiContrast panel, especially if you can view them side by side using non-UHD...

You'll want to stay out of the service menu unless you have advanced TV troubleshooting skills; it's easy to muck things up there unless you're careful and know what you're doing.

Hmmm, who is backing the warranty? Sony provides an 18-month warranty on these sets when new; if it's not covered by the manufacturer's warranty, then it's either not new (e.g., used, open-box,...

Nice choice. I'm using the 80F/X-RT's (from the same series) as surrounds and they are fabulous.

A Different (But Equally Valid) Opinion

Wow, that's pretty harsh; do you care to name any names? I don't believe this forum uses any sort of vetting process, so anyone is free to offer his opinion--well-founded or not. As with most...

Based on the preliminary information available to date, the height speaker placement for Atmos is quite different than that for DTS Neo:X, Audyssey DSX or Dolby PLIIz, so it is unlikely you will be...

Is it possible at this...

Unfortunately, the X4100 does not offer HD radio (unless the U.S. model differs in this regard from the European model), which rules it out for me.
