Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Discussion Thread

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.

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.
:bigsmile: :spend: :yikes: So excited.....can't wait

Re: Denon AVR-4520CI Discussion Thread

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!!

Well played sir. I really am quite happy with the 4520,

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.

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.

This group is a very bad influence, especially since I'd kill for the 4520 but can really only justify the 3313 to my wife. Well, I could just spend $2K and get one on credit but that's outside of the budget and I'm trying not to do that again.

Decisions, decisions. I still wish that my mainstay decade-old Denon 3805 would develop a "problem" to justify it, but that thing is nigh bulletproof.

They make them well, highly unlikely to fail on you. I had a Denon 3806 until about two months ago. Worked like a charm, never a problem. Gifted it to my brother in law for Christmas as I was looking to upgrade. UPS smashed it...... Been dealing with the claim on it since....

Great product, regret shipping, a loss even though I was looking to upgrade.

Hello,
Sonnie's Review is truly a must read for anyone interested in the 4520. Especially with Sonnie also having experience with both the 4520's predecessor the AVR-4311CI and the Onkyo 5508, it really adds a great deal of insight.
Cheers,
JJ

I am so excited for you. Shipping from Florida to Washington is about as long a wait as possible in the Lower 48. Also, now that AC4L is selling the 4520 for the same price as the Ebay price with free shipping, you might want to see if they will refund whatever you paid for shipping. I am not sure if there are different terms with an Ebay purchase, but Mark and Larry are very nice guys and I would guess at worse they would send you some free cables. Depending on the shipping cost, you might come out ahead with free cables regardless.
