There's a small chance that I might be able to get a 2313ci for $100 to $150 more. Would it be worth it? I have not really been able to find any direct comparisons ( I know they are 2 different model years ) also AirPlay isn't a big deal cause I'm using an apple tv2.

My setup is going to be:
Pioneer SP-BS21-LR x2 pairs
Pioneer SP-C21
And Polk PSW505

Theater Room: 65ZT60, Denon 2313CI, Oppo 103D, Apple TV, Logitech Harmony Ultimate
Bedroom: 65VT50, Sony S790, Harmony Smart Control
Game Room: Vizio P70, Harmony Ultimate, Apple TV, Nexus player, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, and about 20 more gaming systems

Both models have very similar features to include the same version of Audyssey MultEQ XT, although the 709 provides for a full set of pre-outs. The reliability of the 709 in the long term would be the only real question, otherwise they're fairly comparable models.

Good to know they are comparable. Ya the only reason I am thinking of paying more is the stories I hear about onkyo's reliability. That would be the only reason I would pay more for the denon. Till gotta decide

Ended up getting a great price on the 2313ci so got that. If onkyo was more reliable I would of gone with the onkyo but just reading the past few days it seems the Onkyo has some reliability issues

Since you've already made the 2313Ci purchase, I hope it's all you're wanting.
