My precious X6200W of six years, took a good bit of a power surge, from a nearby lightning strike a few weeks ago. (HDMI 1 port is dead, all kinds of sporadic EDID issues between devices, and the pre-outs no longer work)

My setup is 7.1.4, with the two rear heights powered by a 2-channel amp (Audio Source AMP100VS)

I'm trying to decide between the X6700H and X4700H. Been reading through Amir’s reviews, several discussions here, and using this comparison:
https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/denon-avr-x4700h/usa/denon-avr-x6700h/usa/

Would the X6700H be a better choice, using all the internal power amplifiers, vs the preamps on the X4700H?

It looks like the most I'd be missing out, going from the X6200W to the X4700H, is dialog enhancement and transparent speaker terminals.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and advice.

Only buy the X6700H if you plan to use the full 13 channels. Otherwise you might as well buy the X3700H. The X4700H is no mans land in terms of price vs feature set.

He might want Auro 3D / Auro Upmixer so 4700/6700 then also.

X6700H = Made in Japan, has DTS:X Pro, 13.2 processing.
