    Hey guys. I had ordered a Yammy 2600 for an awesome price and i got a call today saying that they couldnt get it as it was "unavailable" to them. Whatever that means. They instead offered the 1600.

    So my options are to hunt for another place to get a 2600 and hope they'll match it, which isnt likely. This price was from the manager who was a friend of someone i know. Or do I buy the 1600 from them at reasonable price.

    From what i saw on the site, it doesnt appear the sound would be any different, just these features:

    10watts less--120w.
    HDMI upconversion only to 576p, not 1080i
    Non backlit remote
    Less DSP modes 19 compared to 29

    These things i guess arent that big a deal. But i would have really liked the backlit remote and the extra 10watts. But with the money saved I could nearly buy a Toshiba A1 as well.

    Any thoughts?
