B: digital trends gave this denon a less than glowing review as seen here: http://www.digitaltrends.com/receive...4520ci-review/

As this is a denon owners thread, I have a feeling no one will agree with this review ... but can you tell me how or why you think the reviewer is wrong? $800 is still a lot of money for me and this review made me a little nervous about buying this particular model, even though I've been happy with Denon in the past ...

thanks to all who respond!!!

Once we placed the calibration microphone in the correct positions, total auto setup time using the built in Audyssey system took about 45 minutes

......................
??? This week I just did the auto calibration again with my front heights in a 9.1 setup. It didn't take anywhere close to 45 minutes.

After spending about 10 minutes combing through the manual and the receiver’s setup menu, we still couldn’t find an easy way to default Denon’s version of Audyssey to expect only a single sub.
...
??? No idea why they had an issue with this. It's right there in the setup and asks you how many subs you have.

39TB unRAID1--53TB unRAID2--36TB unRAID3

The elapsed time for the actual chirps doesn't take this long, Aaron. But if the poster is being overly meticulous about mic placement, there could be more time involved than for those of us who have done hundreds of calibrations.

I ordered my 4520 out of Tulsa, OK. I received great service from them and I'm happy to say I picked it up this evening. They also remodeled their magnolia section with 3 dedicated listening rooms. I received a full tour and demo. They even had some mcintosh amps on the floor to listen to, they sounded great. I played with my new toy for a few hours tonight, so my following comparison is based on about one movie. I came from a pioneer sc71 and while it sounded very clear the 4520 seemed to be smoother and has a warmer tone. Most likely XT 32 is responsible for the perceived gain in smoothness. I am now a BIG fan of sub EQ. A great value at $899 for sure.

I feel a little bad for them, but a BB within 90 min driving distance called me with one I picked up today so I canceled my ordered at the Daytona beach store.

Can you leave this in standby mode so you don't have to turn it on and off? Or is that a bad idea (heat, energy costs, etc)?
