Should I get a Denon AVR-X1000 or AVR-1913 for 5.1 set up?
I can get a new 1913 for about $290 and the new X1000 is about $450. I only have a 5.1 set up and its strictly for movies/gaming.
Is the Audyssey MultEQXT and any new feature on the x1000 worth the extra $150?

What do you guys think?

Thx

I was looking at the AVR-E300, but cosidering it's the same price as a AVR-1913 and model 1 level below, I don't really see a reason to get the new E series.

As noted in the "2013 Denon AVR E/X Owner's thread" post #1 linked in my sig, the E300, although being only a 5.1 AVR and the replacement for the 1613, does offer a few new features over the 7.1 1913, so it boils down to what features you require.

It is if audio quality is important to you but will generally be more moticeable with a better quality 5.1 setup (eg. > $500). Also note that if you give avscience.com sales a "call" (yes, pick up the phone and call), you'll be able to get an even better price on the X1000. smile.gif

thx jdsmoothie, your signature links cleared up a lot of things for me smile.gif it all comes down to personal choice of features as you said. I don't need any of the new stuff on the E line.

Note if you decide to go with the 1913, check out posts #1-6 in the 2012 Denon AVR-XX13 Owner's thread also linked in my sig.

I don't want to make a multi-thousand dollar system at home. I also don't live in a house at the moment so I doubt I need it. I will be getting 5.1 speakers to start with, but will want to upgrade to 7.1 at some point. This may be years, so I don't know if it's worth getting a 7.1 receiver. Also, I use a WD TV Live as my main source of media which streams from a NAS server. Most of the files are either 720p or 1080p and there is some FLAC music. WD TV Live doesn't have audio decoding past 2.0 so the receiver will need to do that. I can connect via HDMI for both or HDMI for video and Optical for audio.

Provided that I get a 5.1 speaker system for around $500-$600, can you tell me if the extra features in the 7.1 receivers are worth it? I don't need any zone 2 by the way. So I guess the question is, should I be looking at

AVR-1913 / AVR-E400
or
AVR-1713 / AVR-X1000
or
AVR-2113CI / AVR-X2000

I am in USA, SC.

Hi

My advise would be to trust your instinct. Assess your requirement & budget and go for what works for you

OP - look at the 1713 to see if it'll fit your needs. It's really closer to the new x1000 vs the 1913. The 17 has multi eq xt. The 19 only has multi eq.
