Would you swap your Z11 to the AVR-4520ci if it was cost-neutral?

My Yamaha RX-Z11 sounds great but is beginning to feel long in the tooth. I am considering switching to the Denon AVR-4520ci + 2 channel amp for another 11.2 setup.

My general sense is that YPAO is inferior to the Denon's Audyssey. I wonder about the value of the Yamaha's presence channels and feel that the Denon has the better sounding 11.2 implementation. Furthermore, Denon has OSD over HD, flexible amps and a much improved video and menu system.

Meanwhile, the Z11 is more than twice the weight of the Denon at about 75lbs and truly sounds great.

My question:

Is the 2012 Denon 4520ci an upgrade to the 2007 RX-Z11 in terms of surround quality and video?
