I would say both a PB-2000 and x4000 would be a huge upgrade. With x4100 coming out though I'd say maybe wait. Also, I would keep the RW12d and run 2 subwoofers. Trust me and thank me later.
The thing about x4000 and audyssey XT32. You might think "receiver isn't that big of an upgrade right"? Yeah I thought that too until I got my XT32 room correction software. If you eventually want to get an x4000 or x4100 keeping your old subwoofer will be even a smarter choice since it accepts 2 subwoofers and equalizes them to work together. The result you get with XT32 is the most pure and room filling sound you have ever heard.
This is why I say either would be a huge upgrade.
