Guys I would appreciate your help.
Here are some specifics.
3 separate areas of house with speakers.
Living room is 5.1 in wall generic speakers(no plan to upgrade speakers or number of them)
Other two rooms only have 2 speakers in each room.
Currently running a sony Str-se591
satellite tv
DVD player


What I'm wanting to do
First and foremost I'd like a new receiver simply as an update to technology. I don't have the auto Tune microphone so I've never ran my 5.1 outside of stereo mode.
Second I want to be able to run two sources at once.
I know the 1713 has the preamp zone 2 that I could feed AirPlay or pandora to the receiver with but it won't let me pass through digital audio. To do that I can simply connect an audio cable from each video source to each receiver.
The 1713 is nice but I'm wondering if there are other offerings from denon that might give me preamp zone 2 but maybe save some cash?
Is there another option I should be looking at?
I mainly watch tv at normal levels and we turn on music for entertaining. Nothing over the top at all.

The 1713 is the lowest level Denon XX13 model with Zone 2 pre-outs with the 2112CI and prior to that the 1911 model being the respective lowest models. The 2112CI is on clearance, although may be difficult to find new so you may want to consider refurb w/1 year warranty.
