It's definitely a real thing. Too many people have reported it, and it was happening to me too. My X4000 would randomly shut itself off with no apparent cause. I went so far as to literally leave the...

Holy moly. $75 each with free shipping. Quite the score. I don't watch eBay that tightly but it seems like it's only the crummy EAS versions all the time.

If you want to sell those RC-Rs they will go in a flash. Very hot commodity since they aren't being produced anymore, but lots of people snagging 70s and 10s at Frys.

If you have 4 ceiling speakers you really should go Atmos. It may hurt the wallet short term but I would return the 4000 and swap to the 4100. Call JD for pricing that is probably better than you...

You're already running an external channel amp? Just do the same thing you did already, but for 4 speakers instead of 2. The 4100 has 13.2 pre outs so you can externally amp as many channels as you...

You're not missing anything. The X4100 doesn't have the ability to do 9ch with only the front mains externally amped. You have to use external amps on the Height2 channels.
