Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Official Owners, Discussion and Information Thread

Alright, I am running into an issue with my unit. It appears to be dropping signal when watching any content - the screen will go dark (or a nice magenta during Wreck It Ralph) and then come back on in roughly 5-10 secs.

It is happening on both Cable and BR so it cannot be either of those units. My first thought was that perhaps I had a bad HDMI cable from the AVR to the projector so I swapped that - same issue.

So, I hooked the cable directly to the OPPO and output just to the projector - the issue did not present itself.

To me, this means I am down to the AVR. Does this sound like an HDMI board issue? The only thing I have not tried yet is a factory reset, but I cannot seem to locate that procedure in the manual.

However, I should not have to do this with a unit that I just purchased. Does it make better sense just to return it now?

I would say return it... Did you buy it new or was yours a refurb? Just wondering if it is a refurb does it get warranty replacement by Denon or do you return it to where you bought it.

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Official Owners, Discussion and Information Thread

I called Denon this morning. They think it may be an issue with the length of the cable from the AVR to the projector. I am going to pull it out of the HT and put it in the bedroom system with a shorter cable to see if the issue still presents itself.

I did not have any issues with the length of the cable on the 809.....,

Update - I have been running the 4520 in the bedroom now for about 3 hours and the issue has not resurfaced. So, I ordered a couple Redmere cables from Monoprice - I will update further once I get them and reset the system back up.

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Official Owners, Discussion and Information Thread

After reading the review on here and looking to upgrade from my Denon 987, I do believe I am going to pull the trigger on one of these. I have Polk Rtia9's for my fronts, and have been told by many folks that more power would greatly benefit them. I would also be able to bi-amp them and keep the 7.1 setup that I currently have. Now to save a some cash and break it to the wife without her breaking me. Maybe some of the tax refund will have to go toward this.

One of us. One of us. One of us..... All kidding aside, I am still astonished that this AVR is driving Sonnie's fantastic Martin Logan Prodigies. They are truly not an easy speaker to drive. Come to that, I think The Cedar Creek Cinema might benefit from the next generation of ML Speakers. I am nominating myself to deliver my Vantages and Vistas to Alabama to facilitate the swap.

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Official Owners, Discussion and Information Thread

I noticed a difference right away having the 809 in the HT rather than the 4520. Having SubEQ made a world of difference in the low end - I noticed less impact tonight with Wreck It Ralph than I did last night. Plus, the Denon does have a warmer sound - I understand what people are talking about when they say that now!

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Official Owners, Discussion and Information Thread

Hello,
There really is something special about the Preamp Stage on the 4520. Then again as it also forms the essence of the even more expensive Marantz AV8801 it only stands to reason that it is so good.
Best,
J

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Official Owners, Discussion and Information Thread

Due to my current work situation I have downgraded my cable tv. I now only have a cheap digital converter box. It has a coaxel in and out. Is there a way to convert the coaxel out to a audio video format which I can run through my Denon 4520 and up to my projecter by hdmi?? Just asking don't know if there is a way

Phillihp,
Unfortunately a Coaxial Digital Output is audio only. However, should the box have Component Outputs, you could run the Components into the Denon and it will then transcode into HDMI to your FP.
Cheers,
