This owner's manual sure is extensive - been reading it for the past few days and it makes me sleepy...

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

I just read through the last 4 pages and I'm a little late on the party. $1699 for a refurb 4520? Gee, that's almost impossible to turn down...except my wife would crucify me. Still, it's only money, right Sonnie?

Suddenly, my 3805 is feeling very uneasy.

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

Hello,
Printing out the Owners Manual probably knocked down a few Pine Trees.
Sevenfeet, Denon's x05 Series I think represented Denon at its zenith. That being said the 4520 is awfully special and your 3805 is around 10 years old which I would hope might perhaps only warranting Caning as they do in Singapore and elsewhere by your Wife as opposed to what you described.

D&M have seemed to do a good job in respect to keeping their authorized retailers in line with respect to selling below MSRP. There are some non authorized places that advertise A-Stocks for around $1,900, but given authorized dealers are running low in stock and there is no way to get a warranty, I would definitely go with AC4L.
Cheers,
JJ

Don't all manuals? :-)

If you get tired of reading it... You can always send me the 4520 and I will tell you how it works, after I read the manual of course.

Hello,
I certainly think an entry level AVR is going to have a much simpler owners manual owing to just how relatively basic it is to something like the 4520. The 4520 is truly one of the more flexible AVR's I have ever encountered. All time award still goes to the AVR-5805.

Truth be told, while I have printed out the owners manual, I have not honestly read a page. I received a new printer/fax/scanner/copier that I wanted to try out. Now I do plan to hole punch it and place it into a binder. However, I have setup multiple Denon AVR's including the AVR-4311 in the past year so I was conversant in Denonese.
Cheers,
JJ

I just wish I had one tenth your knowledge - then I would not feel I had to read it or it will blow up!

I did finish it today - I have finished redoing all the connections and I am doing the firmware update now.

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

I know my old Denon 2807 and my 3806 both had horrible manuals. The 3806 would reference the remote and tell you to push a button to get another screen to pop up and it was totally wrong. I get the impression that the manuals are written in Japanese and then use google translate to convert them to English.

OK, this will be the only graph I post here - I promise! This is no EQ, just setting up the 4520 and running Audyssey:

Simply amazing the difference between XT and XT32 / Sub EQ.......
