Hello,
HJ, I love the A100's finish and gave serious thought to getting one instead. I really think the Anchor Bay VP in your A100 and the 4311 has a slight leg up over the Analog Devices used in the 4520. It was your model that really started the temptation of Denon due to the Preamp Only mode offered. Personally, if I owned a A100 or 4311 I would not even consider the 4520CI.
All the best,
J
Yep, no plans to change out the A100 any time soon.

Hug your pet today!

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Discussion Thread

Phil,
I put my money where my keyboard is (so to speak) and purchased it from AC4L. As has been the case with every AVR I have purchased there for myself and for others, it looks completely brand new.

From both personal experience and from friends in the industry who I trust, most AVR's and most any electronic for that matter will fail within the first year if they are going to fail at all. That is during the warranty period.
All the best,
J

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Discussion Thread

I just ordered one (Denon 4520CI) from AC4L. I found it was cheaper to purchase through their Ebay site than there website. I don't need three HDMI cables and speaker wire, part of the current deal on the website which elevated the cost about $130.
So excited.....can't wait

You all are such a bad influence - have me wondering if I should upgrade to a unit with XT32 and Sub EQ to make my whole fine tuning process easier and smoother.....

The fact that Jungle Jack and Sonnie have one was the last bit of confidence I needed to jump in the rabit hole!!

Do it! I really am flabbergasted as to why the Audyssey implementation has had such a positive effect as my TX-NR3008 also had XT32/SubEQ HT.

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Discussion Thread

Hello,
Phillllip23's Ebay snag of the 4520 is brilliant as it is being sold for $1999 on Denon's website and $1899 on AC4L's website.
Here is the Ebay link for $1699:http://www.ebay.com/itm/DENON-AVR-45...item56531bdf87
Cheers,
J

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Discussion Thread

Keep in mind that AC4L site deal is free shipping. The AC4L EBAY is $70 shipping. Which makes it $1769 on Ebay....still cheaper than on the site $1899. Hence the saved $130.

That is an excellent point and I am so glad you mentioned it.
