If you can wait until it's $199 again, I think it is a hell of deal since it has the two HDMI inputs and one HDMI output so you not just stuck with the limitations of running the audio from the TV over optical.
Hey El bajo - I was in BB earlier today and mentioned the $199 price based on this thread to see if they would match it. The customer service rep laughed and told me that the cheapest it's *ever* been offered at BB was $250. I'm pretty sure he looked it up. I'm just wondering if you happen to have a copy of the receipt that you could scan and insert into a reply. I bet if I showed them that, they would honor the price. I tend to believe you rather than them.
Regardless, I picked up an open box SBX4250 for $246 and will be setting it up tonight. Will issue a report afterwards.
