I'm pretty sure you meant another $500 not another $5,000 more for the 6500. I would say unless you're going to be using all 11 Channels with amplification with the 6500 it doesn't make much sense as the power difference between the two is negligible and the sound quality is the same. I speak from experience I started out with the 4500 after upgrading from my 4300 and then I use Denon to exchange program to get the 6500 because I wanted to add an additional two Atmos speakers to run a full 7.1.4 set up.With the price tag difference and currently I have 5.2.4 setup (Would like to bi-amp FL/FR), I would like to ask for current AVR-X6500H/AVR-X4500H users to give me some suggestions, the only big difference I can spot among these 2 receivers are the following:
AVR-X6500H Vs AVR-X4500H
- Power Consumption(W): 750 Vs 710
- Power Output (At 8 ohm, in W): 140 Vs 125
- Number of Power Amp: 11 Vs 9
- Made in: Japan Vs Vietnam
Does it worth to pay another $5K to get AVR-X6500H over AVR-X4500H?
