Thanks for the reply. But I don't really think that is what I am looking for. I could use Airplay to merely play my iTunes compatible video files from my iMac if I wanted to go that route...

I'm glad you found the X4000 cheap as I and a few others on this thread were recommending. Again, the reason we (well I) was recommending this model instead of some of the lesser models even in your...

This! Love the Horizon. Best center I have heard by far. To my ears much better (clear but not harsh) than any of the Paradigm's (Studio) I have had, Def Tec, Polk, etc. To me I am always amazed...

How high is very high? If you mean a little over 50 (absolute) or -20 (relative) then that is normal. Receivers are not how they used to be where as if you turn up the volume to 1/3 it blasts you...
