As winste said it is pretty ugly, but in general you wouldn't care (I just returned my 591 and got 2311, so I used both within 1 hour). IMHO, the only thing that is better for everyday use with the 2311's GUI is that the volume is overlayed, but this, although nice, is definitely something that shouldn't be a deciding factor. If the features of 791 are good enough for you - go for it. As for the number of the HDMI inputs - count the devices you have and think how many more you'll get in near future.
Although the FS's price for 791 is good (I'm also in Canada), I'm sure that if you call the Denon's authorized dealers you'll get a price for 1911 which could be the same or better than the FS's price for 791.
