So I currently have a Denon 2112CI in my movie room and am looking to get another receiver for the living room. I need the living room to have 7.1 in order to use zone 2 for the patio. I also need it to be networked to control volume from anywhere. I have a few options...


- Buy a new 5.1 or 7.1, non-networked receiver and move the 2112 to the living room.

- Buy a new 7.1, networked and keep the 2112 in the movie room.


The living room is 25x25x20, movie room is 10x14. I want both to have Audyssey or similar. My budget cap is $300 but lower would be nice.



What is the cause of the $80 price difference between these two?

What would you recommend for a good 5.1 with Audyssey?

What about a 7.1, networked with Audyssey?

The Denon 791 is a much better receiver than the Onkyo HTR-590. Neither one of those receivers has networking.


Plus the Onkyo HTR-590 is not a zone 2 receiver. The extra channels can only be used for surround back or front height, not zone 2.


Denon uses Audyssey MultEQ while the Onkyo only has 2EQ which doesn't eq the subwoofer and has less filters for the other speakers.



Get the Denon AVR 1912 for $299 shipped.


It has Zone2, Airplay, Audyssey MultEQ and everything else you need. Since you already have the 2112 you'll know how to operate it.

The 1913 is only $20 more if you want a current model.

A quibble: the E400 is the current equivalent of the 19xx. The 1913 is last year's model. Already. *sigh* List is about $600.

(I'm guessing that might be a reason for them changing the model number style -- so they aren't tied to the year any more.)
