Agreed. I'd cancel the X4000 order and stick with the S700W and upgrade your speakers/sub before putting any money into a new AVR.

Your model is now almost 5 years old. Netflix just changed their DD+ encoder about a year ago which has resulted in this issue.

The SR6009 and higher models can receive multi channel DSD over HDMI which is why it is specifically referenced in the SR7009 manual. Networking allows 2CH audio bitstream sources.
