Should I upgrade from Denon S910W to X4200W or X5200W?

I recently purchased a Denon S910W receiver that I am very pleased with. It is still within the return / exchange window. I was however wondering if it would be worth it (approximately twice the price) to upgrade to either a Denon X4200W or X5200W. I am not interested in any more bells and whistles only a noticeable upgrade in sound when watching movies...I am running a combination of Energy / Klipsch (same company now) speakers such as the CC-10 center channel as well as my Apogee Centaurs Slant 6s for the fronts....I appreciate your feedback / advice...

You would be much better served keeping the S910W and using the money that would have been spent on the AVR upgrade to instead upgrade your speakers or and/or adding a second sub.

Agree with jd, spend money on speakers that you will keep much longer whereas avr become absolete relatively fast these days.

UPDATE: I decided to switch from the S910W to the X4200W. Made a significantly noticeable difference in sound quality particularly with voice reproduction / tonal quality and detail. I was hearing things that were not present with the S910W. To me it was definitely worth the difference in price...In addition the S910W ran very warm. The X4200W runs much much cooler as it barely even gets warm at all..
