Yes, all of those models support a 7.1.4 setup with Zone 2/3 pre-outs active. In this respect they're all identical, although note the 6200, 7200, and 4300 have 9 amps built in, whereas the 6300 has...

Honestly I'm not even sure what that second sentence means -- a mix can't be both Atmos and DTS:X for "their respective environments". Are you talking about upmixing?

Regardless... I'll try to...

The important distinction here is between internally powered Zone 2/3 (hooked up directly to the speaker posts on the Denon) versus feeding an external amplifier via the RCA pre-outs.

Any AVR has built-in test tones that can ping each speaker individually. That's already there, specifically for the purpose you cite (calibration).

I'm honestly not sure what the behavior would be though without the extra amp. I imagine it will vary by surround mode --...

Well you can't do a 3.1.4 -- you need a 5.1 base layer to do all 4 height speakers (you can do a 3.1.2 without surrounds though).
