There are a couple of stock answers...

The X4100W can run 9 channels simultaneously (e.g. 5.1.4 Atmos) so no need for the 5200 unless you want to do 11 channels simultaneously (or don't want to add another external amp).

I'm not sure I see anything that's a "contradiction" per se, but yes I think the core issue is the ability (or lack thereof) of the "FRONT WIDE/HEIGHT2" amp channels to remap to other speaker binding...

250/175 means the RC-70 can handle more than 40% more power than the RC-10. Is that really unreasonable?

Those DSP modes on the denon are fairly worthless, they are vestigial legacy modes that nobody really uses as they add a bunch of fake reverb.

Essentially, Denon receivers do not have the vast...

If you have XT32 there is no reason to twiddle with the phase knobs because it will equalize time delays for the two subs.

I'm not sure the current Denon 5200 can't already do that. In theory it should be possible. Unfortunately that won't work with Dolby Surround up mixer (which doesn't output to wides as implemented)...

If it says "run audyssey" that means your calibration got erased. You can't use DEQ/DV without first completing calibration. So somehow you need to get a mic and recalibrate.
