Should I get a Denon AVR-X1000 or AVR-1913 for 5.1 set up?

I can get a new 1913 for about $290 and the new X1000 is about $450. I only have a 5.1 set up and its strictly for movies/gaming.

Is the Audyssey MultEQXT and any new feature on the x1000 worth the extra $150?


What do you guys think?


Thx

I was looking at the AVR-E300, but cosidering it's the same price as a AVR-1913 and model 1 level below, I don't really see a reason to get the new E series.

It is if audio quality is important to you but will generally be more moticeable with a better quality 5.1 setup (eg. > $500). Also note that if you give avscience.com sales a "call" (yes, pick up the phone and call), you'll be able to get an even better price on the X1000.

thx jdsmoothie, your signature links cleared up a lot of things for me
it all comes down to personal choice of features as you said. I don't need any of the new stuff on the E line.

Note if you decide to go with the 1913, check out posts #1-6 in the 2012 Denon AVR-XX13 Owner's thread also linked in my sig.
I don't want to make a multi-thousand dollar system at home. I also don't live in a house at the moment so I doubt I need it. I will be getting 5.1 speakers to start with, but will want to upgrade to 7.1 at some point. This may be years, so I don't know if it's worth getting a 7.1 receiver. Also, I use a WD TV Live as my main source of media which streams from a NAS server. Most of the files are either 720p or 1080p and there is some FLAC music. WD TV Live doesn't have audio decoding past 2.0 so the receiver will need to do that. I can connect via HDMI for both or HDMI for video and Optical for audio.


Provided that I get a 5.1 speaker system for around $500-$600, can you tell me if the extra features in the 7.1 receivers are worth it? I don't need any zone 2 by the way. So I guess the question is, should I be looking at


AVR-1913 / AVR-E400

or

AVR-1713 / AVR-X1000

or

AVR-2113CI / AVR-X2000


I am in USA, SC.
