I suspect the 212htrs will pick up even more. The specs aren't measured the same when reading the specs for both amps, neither give 4ohm info.
I am using 3 x crown xls-1500 for my 212ht (original model) lcr & slanted 8 surrounds. No noise with all the gains set at about 80% max. I use unbalanced rca cables from denon 4311.

Definitely a good deal there. Not to many get such unbalanced success! I would have done the same but the Onkyo 5508 Preamp came about and I went for it. My cables and Neutrik connectors showed up from Parts Express and I wired them up/made them yesterday. One side is Phoenix to input into the Crown DSI amp.

Sounds good, I better pick up some more crowns before the old stock is gone.

I watched it on freaking Amazon Prime and thought the bass and surround effects were really good.

Great news on the XMC-1. Let us know what you think of it without DIRAC and with DIRAC. You are most likely going to want to also purchase DIRAC full for more control and option to use your own measurement mic and cal file.
