Sony 1300/2300/360/100... actual difference?

I'm located in Sweden, where some of these models don't even exist yet, so I'm looking for review information outside my borders. :)

HT-SF1300 is available here in lots of stores for around €405.

At the Swedish Sony site is the following models labled "New model" and the then their quite sad availability:
HT-SF2300 €590 (only available in one store)
HT-SF360 Not available anywhere, no prices exist
HT-SF100 Not available anywhere, no prices exist

And for the big question... except for different face plates to match different series of BlueRay players, is there any major differences inside the boxes, different decoders, major sound quality, revision of the chips that give a major improvement?
Comparing the technical specifications give almost identical specs except for some minor weight differences.

I am tempted to get the HT-SF1300 as the price is a bargain, and matching design is of no importance as it will be up and running with a Samsung 46B7070 and a PS3 for BlueRay, or I'll wait for the HT-SF360 system if that prove to be an upgrade worth waiting for from the HT-SF1300.

This topic don't quite match the description for "All-in-one Systems" as no DVD or Blueray-player is included in any of the packages, but a search for HT-SF1300 pointed in this direction. :)

1300 - standard finish.
2300 - finish to match blu-ray players.
SF100 - 2009 model, with different finish.

sony havent added anything extra to the mix with the new models, instead they seem to concentrate on the look, more than internal decoding, enhanced audio, etc, and besides, the 1300/2300,etc were probably the better AIO's on the market compared to other brands lacklustre attempts.
apart from that, and price differences, they are virtually identical.

I guess there is nothing holding me back now... ah, the sweet agony of spending money. :)

Thank you.
