Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
Get whichever surrounds work better for your placement, either will be fine.
Between those AVR's I wouldnt go with the 1913 and if the 2112CI doesnt have either Audyssey MultiEQ XT or pre-outs I would go with the 709 (or even 809).
Personally I am NOT a Denon fan, had one, didnt like it, sold it. I have been running my Integra (higher line of Onkyo) for 4 years I think at this point and plan to replace it with either the 709 or 809.
Please note the newer models from Onkyo (616, 717) do not
have Audyssey MutliEQ XT and IMHO thats the min auto calibration you want, so look at the models and see which has that and go with it.
