If your stepping down to MultEQ XT and your only going 5.1 there is no reason to go beyond the 2113 or 2112....and you can really go with the 1712 or 1713. That will save you a ton of dough...but that is a decision you will have to make with respect to MultEQ XT.
Now some people find this..not nice... It is your call but go to BB and see if the XT 32 makes a differance in your house. They do have a nice return policy.
The only reason to be going with anything above the 2113 is because you do multi-zone etc IF you are ok with the MultEQ XT.
As far as power... Lets not forget 100 to 140 watts per channel is not a whole lot of sounds differance. That is because of the vast diminishing returns power has on loudness. I am sure someone allot smarter can explain it better than me. 50 watts only = .5 db differance which is not discernable by most people.
Again...if I am wrong please feel free to jump on me with your good leg and club foot and yank out my back hairs with the lips of a long dead fish.
As for bi-amping...that is a WHOLE different thead...in vast majority number of cases it is snake oil. At least...that is what I understand from reading these forums.
