Denon x3500h vs x1500h help me decide.

I want to upgrade my current old reciever and want to go atmos/dts-x, atm I'm looking at the x3500h and the x1500h.
I compared both and it seems they are on par with x3500h edging it out with some feaures.
I have a c8 oled tv so I figured I don't need the upscaling from the reciever and only need 4k passthrough and let the tv do the upscaling.

So what benefit would the x3500h have over the x1500h to warrant the almost doubling in price?
Still worth it to get the 3500 instead of the 1500?

The X3500 has more power and more IO including pre-amp outs if you want to use an external amp down the road. It also has Audyssey XT32. No one can tell you what features you need for your system so you will have to make that decision on your own, but if you think you might want some of the features included with the X3500 later down the road then that's the better buy.

The x3500h is the lowest model to include Audyssey MultEQ XT32 and Sub EQ HT. This is a significant step up for room correction and can make a big difference in sound quality. To me this is the main reason to spend the extra even if the x1500h has all the features you otherwise need.
