If you have your 4520 connected to a UPS that can be an option too. I use an APC UPS with my 4520. I have the 4520 connected to the Master outlet and my fan connected to a slave outlet. WHich allows the fan to automatically turn on/off with the 4520.

I have a SurgeX which has a remote, but it applies to almost all the outlets. I tried, a few times, to figure it out with my device. No such luck. I wish they made a device exactly like this with a 1/8" remote connector. Oh well. Working now.

I use a APC Smart-UPS 1500VA in my system, but it is connected into a handful of devices also.

I had devices that could get the job done, but they were performing other functions and at the end of the day, I needed a specific device for a remote triggered outlet....or you know, Denon just to have left the triggered outlet on the receiver.

Sorry, but firmware updates by USB is not possible at this time. Most any 3rd party Wifi router that can be set to "bridge" mode can be used while for Bluetooth you can use a 3rd party Bluetooth adapter (although if you use DLNA, likely no reason for Bluetooth).

Dialog Enhancer

The Dialog Enhancer setting didn't get much fanfare in this thread, but the setting is dropping down to the X5200W and will also likely pass to the X7200W. Does anyone find this setting helpful?

If I'm thinking about the right setting, I think it seems to increase the volume of the center channel. I just know I don't need to use it in my setup.

While testing my denon without the emotiva xpa5, I got tempted to use this, and although the xpa 5 doesn't make it louder it adds some extra oomph to the lower mids the denon some might feel lacking and dialog enhancer is a feature that can help, especially at lower volumes.

The emo may be superflous, but I like the sound coming out of this combo, and I am lucky enough to have housemates who is ok with me watching movies at -15 to -10 mv levels.

I believe a receiver has a lot of features because they have to be army knife units that can do very different things for different users.
Because I don't need to use one doesn't mean it isn't a good feature and it certainly perform better than just bumping the volume on the center channel as some do.

thanks, I didn't need too much convincing. I'm ready to play with my new toy

Sure. However, I believe this is more than just a center channel volume setting, rather it is supposed to focus only on the human voice frequency range (ie. 300Hz - 3Khz).

To be clear, because it's a bit confusing, the lower level models have a "Dialogue Level" setting that is simply a proxy for center channel volume.

The 4520CI however (and now the X5200W) have a feature called "Dialogue Enhancer" which isn't just a level adjustment, but actually modulates the freq response of the center channel to (theoretically) enhance dialogue clarity.

Jerry actually measured the effect in this post: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1430049/th...#post_22520305

I'm planning to try it out for late night listening on my 5200, as there are times when I'm listening at such low volume to keep effects in check (even with DV on heaviest setting) that dialogue becomes a big hard to pick out. It's especially tricky with congested action movie soundtracks because the DV volume clamping also lowers the dialogue with the rest of the volume when the action gets heavy.
