Looks like I have company!
I am also trying to decide which Denon is best: last years AVR-2112ci, or the new AVR-1713
The Denon will be paired with Samsung UN55EH6050 and Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers, and a yet to be picked Blu-ray.
Denon tells me that the 1713 has better apps for internet radio (Denon uses vTuner in both models) but I probably could add apps to the 2112. Also the 1713 is smaller and has a new face and control arrangement.
Maybe price will be the determing factor, although I expect they will be close to same money
And, speaking of internet, do I really need a blu-ray with wi-fi, or just a good reliable player?
