I do not think you should have any regrets.
The next big thing is always just around the corner and you can wait forever and that will not change.
You selected an excellent AVR, enjoy it.

I've read the reviews of 4520 & X4000. Although both are using XT32 correction, people are saying that the movie experience between the both are very different, 4520 being more attacking and refine, while X4000 being boring. While minute difference are more discernible in stereo music listening, I'm surprised that people mention about that difference in movies.

With the release of these new AVR, I hoping for major price drop for 4520.

Plead provide some links.
I have not seen anything comparing the two in that manner.
I am a Pioneer guy, so I am just curious where that info comes from.
I have no interest in defending any AVR.

I'm not here to point fingers, but I think we all know that this hobby tends to have rather common occurrences of people claiming to hear significant differences with minor changes. Now, software can also be a funny thing, and human error is also a factor in setup, mic placement, etc., background noise may have skewed one of the setups... who knows.

Any word on whether or not older Denon receivers, with the channels to handle it, will get an Atmos update? like the 4311 or the 4520?

Highly unlikely, Atmos requires more than just a software upgrade as hardware is also involved.

Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

I just noticed that the Marantz AV7702 is on their website. Specs seem very good. It has a MRSP only $100 more than the AV7701 and has Atmos, Audyssey MUTIQ XT32, and 11.2 channels.

If I hadn't just bought a refurbished AV7005, I might have to consider this. Of course it cost over twice as much as I paid and my AV7005 does all I ask of it.
