Folks what about the x4200w vs the RZ900? I've been waiting for better prices on the 4200 since I've always had denons and want xt32, but this fry's sale on the rz900 seems pretty good.

I did not call AVS. There is a AVS website that does not show any x2200w. Do I have to call to get stock availability and pricing? I've love to get another x2200w, not at $599 though :)

I'd love to hear where you got your x3200w from. I also shopped for a x2200w for about two months and never saw it going for less than $599 (new/factory-sealed that is).
