Not unless the AVR does not meet your required volume needs.

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear. I meant that I used to keep the volume around 35. You said that's probably due to Dynamic Volume. Then maybe Dynamic Volume got turned off, so now I have to keep it around 50, which you said is normal. But if DV is turned *on* and I still have to go to 50 for sufficient volume, that means I'm turning it higher than I used to. Isn't that indicative of an issue?

You were very clear. You're using a 7 year old model. Although this may indicate the amp may be failing, as long as you're still able to achieve the volume level you prefer (without going over the recommended maximum of 80) then there's no issue for you.

Oh gotcha. So possibly an issue, but easily worked around by just turning the volume up. When I have my air conditioner running, I've had to bring it up to 70ish, but so far I haven't had to push it to 80. Hopefully that holds up.

If I did feel like replacing it, is there a direct successor to it (or maybe a few at this point, it IS 7 years old)?

The current direct successor to your 1913 is the S950H which still uses the same Audyssey MultEQ. Review post 1 in each of the 2018 and 2019 Denon AVR Owner's threads to review feature differences between models to determine if you want a feature in a higher level model.

Thanks for your help. Yeah, with the newer versions of Audyssey, maybe a direct successor would not be the way to go. Haha. I'd love to integrate Google Assistant (I know support is limited for the time being, but expected to improve). I'll poke around. Maybe I can get a good deal on A4L and upgrade while I'm at it.

The different versions of Audyssey (ie. MultEQ, XT, XT32) have been available since 2010. The major change has been that XT32 has moved down to the X3000 series in 2016.

Right. At the time, getting XT32 would cost me a lot more than I paid for the 1913. But now, I can get it on a lower model, so it's a cheaper upgrade path. There are so many model numbers to keep track of. I think I was looking at the X3500 yesterday. That one might hit all the features I'd be interested in.

Scored a 2113 for $75

No diff from the original MSRP, but sounds so much better. 4K & pre-outs FTW.
