It's been this price on Amazon for a while. Good deal though and I'd imagine with the new models coming out that price will continue to drop.

I didn't even see the price at amazon, but this is the lowest price I've seen other than a few smaller online retailers. I'd save on tax with those but i like the convenience of instore pickup or return. Would love to see if price drops more but i need the receiver for my new home theater setup so I think I'll bite

It's a great AVR for sure. The one I would get it I were buying today. But, I think its replacement will offer Atmos...which is very intriguing. So these things should be closing out to make room!

for people not worried about atmos, I think this would a fine for a few years right? I'm running 4ohm speakers so I wanted a receiver that was very capable. At this pricepoint I'm not sure what my alternatives would be. I didn't like the pioneer elite sound so I narrowed it down to the 4520 or Yamaha adventage. The 3040 is out of my budget so I'm now down to 4520 or the 2040. People rave about audessey xt32 so the 4520 is what I ended up buying (but order still in process so I can still change my mind). I just hope I don't feel like I'm buying an outdated receiver. The 4520 doesn't have wifi, Bluetooth, no digital audio to zone 2, etc.

That's just the nature of the beast when purchasing electronics. Even the early adopters will own outdated gear at some point. If 4K and Atmos don't interest you in the near future I'd say you're just fine with the 4520.

thanks, I decided I'll keep the 4520.
Let us know you're thoughts. I'm tossing around the idea of a new receiver to replace my Onkyo 1007.

In a strange twist of events, the price is now $1599... I hope they'll honor the $999 I paid.

Over on AVS, some people have went to the store ans got them to search for a 4520, and got the $999 price. One guy got it down to $700 something with his BB rewards card added.
