B. Mo, Amazon

  • Summary: Awesome! I have a AVR-3310CI (150W + Audyssey MultEQ) and thought the sound quality between the 3310CI and this 4520CI were about the same given I am using just a set of OK speakers (Polk Audio VM20 + DSW microPRO 1000 subwoofer) and my non-professional ears. Boy was I wrong! Music, songs, movies become LIVE! Suddenly, my favorite music and movies become from great to awesome!

A Powerhouse From Denon

Sharkman, Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: I picked this model up after research on the web, and after several days am very impressed. I've owned several receivers previous to this one, including 2 flagship Onkyos( 876 and 906) and a Denon 3803. This receiver sounds better than anything I've encountered in a receiver. I'm a bit of a purist, and don't need some of the highly technical features this unit has, but sound quality counts alot, as does functionality. The 4520 has both in spades.

Powerful and full of features

  • Summary: I got this receiver for a fraction of MSRP and this receiver is a beast. I upgraded from HK avr 3700 for mare channels. I did not feel hell of a difference but Denon sounded better (of course it's twice the cost). Plenty of features and nice app.

awesome until its not - doesn't last

  • Summary: My absolute favorite thing about the Denon AVR-4520CI is that it will upscale all video signals to 4K (3,840 by 2,160 pixels), which provides four times the picture quality of 1080p sot that you can use it with 4K monitors and video projectors. 4K is so relaxing on your eyes and most people may not see the visual difference other than your eyes are more relaxed which is wonderful the older you get.

Sounds amazing!

J. Owen, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: I recently upgraded from a 12 year old Denon 4802 and couldn't be happier. I removed my rear surrounds and now have 9.1 with height and wide channels engaged. The soundstage is amazing. Very pleased with the purchase.

Refurb HDMI not working

Alfred Harding, Denon
16 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I like the sound of my AVR-4520CI but am disappointed that the HDMI switcher in the refurbished unit does not work. I ended up purchasing a SC-77 after 6mo of troubleshooting without resolution. They should have just sent me a new one. Now it's just sitting in a box in the garage after spending $2k for it. I think the Denon sounds better than the Pioneer.

Denon AVR-4520CI

BobL, Crutchfield
16 January 2014
  • Summary: This receiver has been very disappointing. The software is flaky and laggy. The surround modes cannot be used to "enhance" stereo because they shift stereo sources to the left. After just a year, the tuner no longer works. Stations have to be tuned manually, and only a few of the many stations in the area can be captured successfully. I thought Denon was supposed to be a very good brand. I would never buy any of their products in the future.
  • Pros: There is nothing special about this receiver.
  • Cons: Lots of things have never worked properly. I can't believe this is a "high-end" receiver.

Denon AVR-4520CI

Anonymous, Crutchfield
16 January 2014
  • Summary: The sound is great and the setup was easy. The one little drawback was the instructions for setting up the various zones was all over the instruction booklet and after a lot of trial and error I figured it out. Also no Wifi.
