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

Nice one thanks for the heads up, didn't think we were going to get any more. Will go and check and see if it is applicable to the UK as well.
Have not been on the forum for a while, too many things been going on. I have peeked in occasionally but had no time to post comments. In fact so busy have resigned from a couple but going to stay here, like the folks and like the forum. Just hope things are going to ease up. Family weddings, parts of the family moving, grandson and grandson-in-law (think that's right) changing jobs, one to the army and one to the navy, replacing cars, property maintenance etc. it never seems to stop. Hopefully though will have time when the major wedding is done to come in and catch up.

Thank You for your response. The clicking started after I sent the unit in for a dusting and cleaning, it came back working fine except for the clicking. It took me almost 3 months to get it back from the dusting and cleaning so I do not wish to send it back for a check up, so I will live with the little noises.

Be Well

Like I said my Onkyo 1010 is also very large @ 51 pounds as well, it's warm at idle kind of like my big Panny plasma, I had to put 4 200mm fans on the rear and it stays nice and cool. That malady you speak of with the clicking volume control is really unusual and never encountered it. Like you said other than that it's just fine.

Hey Rick now you have confirmation from Savjac that the 4520 runs warm with even easy loads so just leave well enough alone and enjoy.

Hi guys
Just thought I would update on progress. Been running the 4520 now since our discussion on 8ohm and everything is fine. I had a thought about my 42deg C and being an that seemed warm till I looked at it in old money that is only 107.6 deg F barely a warm day in some places that is seriously not running hot, maybe I was having a brainstorm or something.

Meantime now may the fun begin I have finally gotten round to getting me a miniDSP UMIK1 microphone, after all the time of messing about with an unknown mic and cheap SPL meter, my first and only run, so far, with this and REW was a quick speaker sweep. Eureka at last results, and pleasing ones too, that looked like what I expected to see from the speaker spec and could feel comfortable and confident about. OK this item is a bit more expensive here than in the US but if the above is anything to go by really worth it. Right, away now to do an exploratory exploration of the Den's sonic anomalies before I start the main system.

All the best

Rick

Hi Savjac, Thanks for your input very useful information, my two new front speakers are also more efficient than average. The click you mention when you turn the volume up and down is not something I have experienced. From memory I only get a click on power up or muting. Like you I have experienced no problems but was just wondering about the apparent increase in temperature under certain impedance settings, but as you have confirmed it can run quite warm, so thanks again for your response.

Rick

I have this AVR and it runs quite warm even into my very efficient speakers, but it never breaks, shuts off or does any other maladies other than click when I turn the volume up and down and I have no clue why. This is a very large receiver.

Hi Jeffrey
Yes I think you are right, I generally tell others 'if it ain't broke don't mend it ' time to follow my own advice and yours.

Thanks and best wishes

Rick

Rick I think you answered your own question: tis a bit of a beast with bags of power on tap. The 4520 is known for driving difficult loads, I think the heat issue is a moot point and perfectly normal, just my opinion. My Onkyo 1010 is also a beast with plenty of power to spare, it gets warm at idle, solution is 2 200mm fans and problem solved. Keep the molehill mentality and I think you will be just fine. As long as your rack is open on all sides or has plenty of ventilation space you'll be just fine, relax and enjoy you setup my friend, if it sounds good, don't try to fix or break it.......

Cheers Jeffrey
