It is a very nice receiver but it is clear that is made by audiophiles!

Summary: This is going to be a review that will be updated as I use the product more and more. I am one of those guys that is coming from an older 4800 series and used to Denon. From an audio point of view, the amp section is fantastic. The sound in my room has never been this good.
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.
Excerpt: I've had my Denon 4520CI for over 1 year now, Nov-2012. Bought it locally from brick-n-mortar store AVIO in Michigan. It is used in my basement dedicated HT - dedicated room with 2 rows of seating for 8 people, prior I was using a 4308CI since 2008.
Excerpt: I love the 4520!! The sound is superb, it just missing a few things that either older denon models had as well as lower denon models have. i.e..the ability to pause MP3's without having to completely stop and start over again.
Summary: I had a customer who recently purchased this RCVR, it is amazing except the following.... 11.2 only works if you run 2 speakers out to preamp, the RVCR is built with only 9 internal amplifiers. Also, if you want to use a zone, you are subsequently dropped down to 7.2...
