Denon AVR-4520CI A/V Receiver

Sound & Vision Magazine
11 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Denon and its sister brand Marantz are among the most popular A/V receiver makers. The AVR-4520CI is Denon’s top-of-the-line model, the brand’s best shot at building every feature worth having into a nine-channel powerhouse. It does not attempt to be all things to all people (Bluetooth users, for instance). But it does offer a feature set that is strong in custom integrator features; hence the CI designation in the model number.

Denon AVR-4520

AVForums
22 July 2013
  • Conclusion: It's fair to say that the basic design of the AV receiver hasn't changed much over the last 20 years but then if it ain't broke and all that. In fact, Denon's receivers have always had a very attractive look, with a solid chassis, thick front panel and well engineered finish. The AVR-4520 is a worthy addition to Denon's famous lineage and whilst we prefer the black finish, it's also available in premium silver.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality, Comprehensive connections, Impressive video processing, Solid build quality, Flexible setup and configuration, Well designed and user friendly menus, Great remote app
  • Cons: None

Denon AVR-4520CI Receiver Review

hometheatershack.com
17 February 2013
  • Excerpt: About a year ago I decided to give up my Denon 4311 receiver so that I could give the Onkyo 5508 preamp/processor a spin in my system. The 5508 has performed very well, yet for some reason I have this perception that it is noticeably forward, particularly in the dialog/midrange area. When using it I find myself backing down the center channel output from time to time, depending on the source material.

Test: Denon AVR-4520 + DBT-3313 UD

Audio
13 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Der AVR-4520 bringt alles mit, was man für ein langes, sorgenfreies Heimkino-Leben braucht: eine gelungene Mischung aus Kraft und Klang , sehr gute Bedienbarkeit und eine Ausstattung, die nicht so sehr mit Gimmicks als mit wirklich langfristig nützlichen Features punktet.
  • Pros: kraftvoll, plastisch, fein aufgelöst und mit nahezu perfekter Ausstattung, SACD und DVD-Audio, Audio/Video-Streaming-Client, mehrkanaltauglich, sehr guter Analogausgang, Denon Link HD
  • Cons: Appsteuerung beim Streaming-Client noch mit Tücken
