Denon 4520 Receiver Review Discussion Thread

http://www.hometheatershack.com/imag...ront_image.jpg

With a plethora of features and sufficient power to drive some of the most demanding speakers, as well as the ability to process a 5.2 system with the main speakers bi-amped and still have two channels remaining for a separate two-channel setup, the Denon 4520 is poised to be a favorite among enthusiasts. If you are looking for an all-in-one unit with a good power amp design versus a processor plus separate power amps, or maybe limited on space to accomplish the same, the 4520 is definitely worth consideration… and highly recommended in my conclusion.

Well, between this review and the official owners thread I am definately upgrading to the 4520. Thank you for the great review of the Denon.

Very good review. The fact that the 4520 can drive your ML's so well that you sold some monster mono blocks is really interesting.

I also really enjoyed the 1 vs 8 positions graphs at the various seats to be enlightening. I haven't seen that done by anyone before and it brings up a few questions for me to look at in my own system. Thanks for being so thorough and sharing the results.

Thanks guys!

We will be getting into more detail with a couple of different room comparisons on the 1 vs 8 in our very detailed Audyssey Information thread that we are preparing now.

Hello Sonnie,

Very nice and thorough review! Your review of UMC-1 was what drew me to the Shack, by the way. I did not buy the UMC-1.
Your reviews are easier to digest than others I have read on traditional publications, in a good way. I was wondering why you sold your Emotiva amps, when I saw your ads. Well, now I understand.
Do you think you'll review Anthem's receivers in the near future? MRX-700? It would be interesting to compare Anthem's highly regarded ARC Vs the Audissey room correction. I hope you'll add this to your to do list.

Thanks for the review.

Thanks again guys... I appreciate the kind words.

@PhxHT... I was talking to a guy, Chris at Cohen Electronics, just the other day and he mentioned the Anthem receiver. I actually owned an Anthem processor and amp several years back... the AVM-50 and MCA-50. I never wrote any reviews on them, but it would be nice to maybe get a hold of one of their receivers and give it s spin in my system... perhaps the MRX 700.

Great review Sonnie! I have the A100 (same as the 4311) and you are making my upgrade bug kick in:rolleyesno: I'll have to think long and hard if I will really benefit from the upgrade or if I need to sit it out until the 'newer' version next year. I'm really surprised that it can actually power your ML, they usually need good amplification that AVR's can't provide.

Thanks for the review!!!
