This would allow you to have different picture calibration settings for the two inputs with one HDMI connection to the TV.
This might be an alternative for some users, but the picture controls on the Denon are nowhere near as comprehensive as those on the display itself.

Bat pig/AustinJerry,

Thanks for the input, but could you answer the question? If you don't know, no problem. I appreciated that you answered already.

What question is unanswered? Is the way you are proposing the only way to accomplish your objective? Yes, as far as I know. Are there any differences between Monitor1 and Monitor2? Already answered, no difference that I am aware of.

Is there any video differences between these two? If anyone wonders why I like to use the different inputs on the tv is because I have different calibrations for tv and for movies. If I just use monitor 1 I would need to change this depending on the feed instead of it being automatic with the tv input.

The manual only mentions that ARC is supported on MONITOR1 but not MONITOR2. I see no other difference.

It does sound like you could select either of those at the TV and get what you want. There is a note on p.190 of the manual indicating that the AVR will try to negotiate a common resolution supported by both devices that are connected. As long as the input at the TV that is NOT selected reports the same capabilities as the one that is in use or deactivates completely it should be fine.

Oops, I was looking at the 5200 manual. Details about the two outputs on the 4520 are on p.130 of its manual. Seems like the same applies but you might want to test it at a dealer if possible, or see if you can work something out where you can bring home a floor model to try before you commit.

Anyone out there that has went from separate components,to using just the 4520 for amplification? If so, what are your thoughts? Do you feel you are missing out on anything?

THANKS !!

I went from an Outlaw 7125 and X4000 to the 4520.

So far watching a good 15 hours of HDTV, and two movies (cranked to reference 0.0), I have been very happy. My speakers are very efficient though. I'm sure separates matter more for power depending on speaker type and specs.

As far as SQ, I think it sounds great. Also runs cool/warm after a 2 hour movie at high volume.

I am not familiar with speakers that low. If there is an owner's thread here, you might be able to get better info. Mine like 98db sensitivity, in theory they need very little power to get loud, but I do like the head room. You may be better suited by getting an X4000 on its way out and an emo or outlaw amp.

I am constrained on space, so it was nice going from two large boxes to one

I went from a Onkyo PR-SC5508 with a Sherborn 7-350 amp to a Denon 4520CI. I don't think I'm missing anything. But I had/have very sensitive PA speakers that get to reference with like 8-16 watts. The speakers I'm using currently are 96dB @ 1 watt, the previous were 98dB @ 1watt.

I'm wondering the same thing about the 4520 vs separates. I have Traid silver 6 LCR and silver 4 surrounds. All in wall. The mains are 92 db 2.83v/1m. The surrounds are just 83 db/1w/1m though. All are 4 ohm. It's a 7.2 config.

I'm driving the speakers off emotive xpa3 and xpa5 right now and need a new preamp. I was thinking to just get a X4000 or SR7008 to use as the preamp, but you can get a 4520 now for almost the same at the SR7008.

If the 4520 could negate my amps it would be interesting. Then upgrade again later when the X7200 is on close out. I don't need atmos or 4k now.

I can tell you this, the X4000 is a nice preamp with XT32 and multi sub eq. Real cheap right now too.

I needed the room and my X4000 failed, so it made sense just to grab a 4520 at $1100 in my situation. But some would probably still benefit from separates.
