Looking to get a Denon 5.1 for my basement I am finishing. I will power the new Sony Core bookshelf speakers, center, and some in-wall surrounds. I am replacing a 20 year old Denon 1600. A quick look at the 2013-2014 Denon line has lead me to be confused. Their seems to still be the 16xx, 17xx, 19xx series but there is also an x1000, x1100, E400 and even an S series. I am lost. I am looking to spend around $200 (open box, clearance, etc is fine). I am looking at Accessories4Less and found a few decent options:

AVR-S500BT 5.2 $190
AVR-1613 5.1ch $190
AVR-E300 5.1 $200
AVR-X1000 5.1 $230

Any thought on these? The S500BT seems cheap with speaker clip connectins. The 1613 looks great. The X1000 seems the best just not sure if it is worth $40 more for a simple non streaming 5.1 basement setup. Any help or other suggestions would be great. I even looked at an open box Pioneer VSX-44 for $187 at BB but the reviews for quality, on screen menu, and speaker sound setup all seemed to be worse than the Denons. HELP!

Thanks for the links, makes more sense now. Tough when they keep changing their naming structure.
