I just purchased the Pioneer SP-FS52 Andrew Jones Designed Speaker system (excluding the subwoofer, getting a F12 BIC America)
I stream ALOT of movies, and TV shows via DLNA from my PC to my web TV so for me DLNA is a priority in my purchasing decision.
In comparing the 1613 and the 1713, it seems that the 1613 has more features overall. The 1613 has 1 less HDMI port, but also includes 3D capability if I ever decide to upgrade, and also priced less. Also, the Denon 1613 includes the DTS HD High Resolution DTS Decoder whereas the 1713 does not include that.
A main difference I would like to point out is in the Dolby Decoders:
Dolby Digital (5.1) & Dolby True HD
Dolby Pro Logic IIZ
Not sure if this is a big deal or not? Shouldn't movies be able to support all of these formats?
I can see now that the1713 model offers MultiEQ XT versus just the MultiEQ that the 1613 offers, which I believe allows the system to equalize the sound better for the room that it is in.
The real confusion comes with the Dolby Decoders, I assume the newer model would be able to handle anything thrown at it?
