Correct. X4100W and X5200W due out in Sep. However, you implied the replacement for the 4520CI was the X5200W which it is not.

You can use the powered speakers connected to the Zone 2 pre-outs and place them on your patio. Buy a set of regular surround speakers to complete your 5.1 setup.

Although only a "mid-level" model, I'm guessing the built-in Wifi is exactly the same on every 2014 model. You can always add an external "bridge" router if necessary.
