I thought this as well, but I think there is far more below the surface than the specs suggest. I can't confirm anything for sure, but I believe that there are a number of changes/upgrades that are not apparent from the specs.
If anyone would like to contest this, then I have on simple thing to say that potentially proves my point. Audyssey Pro support was supposed to be implemented back in November, but 3 months later we are still waiting for confirmation. If things were so similar and so simple, it would not have taken this long.
