I don't know whether Audyssey XT32 would be life changing, but it might be. Some people prefer to use no automatic equalization, others limit it to below 300 or 500 Hz, others use full range. (I do the latter; I've tried limiting it, but it didn't make a huge difference to my ears.)
It is bundled with SubEq, which allows semi-independent equalization of two subwoofers. I am not aware of any other receiver at that price that includes that feature.
If you go for the Denon, I recommend getting the MultEq Editor app. https://usa.denon.com/us/product/hom...ulteqeditorapp
It costs $20. In my experience, it's a bit buggy, but it works. I've had the best luck running it under the Blue Stacks Android emulator (freeware) on a Windows 10 PC. If you wish to do any experimentation with Audyssey settings, it can be a great time saver. It has capabilities that don't exist in the Audyssey version in the receiver. There's a thread for the editor. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-re...-pre-pros.html
The main problem with it is a lack of a manual, but there's a third party guide available. https://www.dropbox.com/s/z8nnkmceff...20App.pdf?dl=0
I apologize for committing the usual forum sins of encouraging a poster to spend more money than intended, and to get more involved in the hobby than intended. The cost overage isn't much, though.
