I bought a new 4100 from an eBay for $1079 (5100s were selling for $1232 but the unit is too big for my stand). I received it yesterday (only took 3 days!), and it is works great. I also registered it at the Yamaha website, since the seller said it was covered under warranty.
The included wireless subwoofer module and wireless iPod/iPhone adapters are nice. I still think Yamaha should have made these optional accessories and lowered the msrp, so more people could afford it.
I'm trying to decide if PCM or Bitstream is the best way to send signals to the 4100. The 4100 only displays "PCM" and the number of speakers when processing PCM. When processing bitstream, the 4100 will display the appropriate decoder (ie. Dolby Digital, TrueHD, etc.) which is nice. Any suggestions?
