Any digital receivers between the XR57 and XR700?

I require a class D receiver (carrying it in suitcase internationally and using a step-up converter with 220) and the 57 seems a bit limited (only 1 HDMI, no channel/sub separate channel control, 1080i HDMI out only) but I really don't want to pay double for the 700. Any other options in between?

Bumping this in hopes that someone can help me out. I'm inching closer to decision time.

I'll add another question: any idea how many real world watts these guys consume? I'll be in 5.1, I guess bi-amping the fronts, although I have mid-sized satellites up there (as opposed to towers), might not be worth while. I'm asking because right now I have a 750watt 220-110 step down converter, but I also want to use it to run a sub and the receiver. I also have a couple 200 watt stepdowns, but that's probably not enough to run either. Insight appreciated.
If you are traveling internationally, there has been mention of an sa-xr59 being released in Europe. Search the xr57 thread for more info.
