I tend to keep these receivers for a while and looking for excellent sound for my new Goldenear Sat3s and Sat 5.

First of all, Go Bulls!

Secondly, you didn't provide any details about your requirements or listening/viewing habits, so by definition both the 4520 and the X4000 would be overkill for a 5.1 speaker setup; however, that doesn't mean that either one is not suitable or a terrific bargain at the currently discounted clearance prices.

Given that you seem to anticipate wanting to hold on to whatever AVR you get for more than a few years, I would suggest that you consider purchasing a newer model since the older units will tend to become obsolete sooner. It would appear that you are budgeting at least $800 to $1000 for the purchase; if you could go a couple hundred higher you could score the X4100, which offers the latest and most advanced technology in D&M models (Bluetooth, wireless, Audyssey MultEQ XT32, et al) in addition to Dolby Atmos. Although WAF and space constraints may be currently preventing you from expanding your listener-level speakers beyond 5.1, those issues can be circumvented for the addition of height speakers via in-ceiling installation or Atmos-enabled upfiring modules allowing you the potential to go to 5.1.4 in the future. If you use your system for much movie-watching, I would give the Multidimensional Audio factor strong consideration when shopping for a new, long-term AVR.

No such thing as overkill in this hobby, it's called headroom instead :-P

No, NEO:X sounds better to me with 11.2 channels. But I might play around some more when I get the time - doesn't cost anything ( other than time ) to try other settings !

Recommend you lie to the AVR and tell it that your speakers are 8 ohm however. Gives a bit more headroom.

I am so sorry; I totally forgot which thread I was in.

* I simply mentioned, ,,, there was nothing more than that.

Please, refrain from personal negative remarks towards other members. If you have a personal issue with another member, keep it out of the threads.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I haven't ordered a 4520 from them but I've ordered a laptop and a camera from them in the past with great results.
I wouldn't hesitate if the price is right for you.
I do have a 4520 also and recommend it also, if it fits your needs.

Anyone know if the 4520 can handle a 2 channel 24bit/192kHz track from an Oppo 103D using HDMI?
It plays the 5.1 channel 24bit/96kHz fine.
Thanks for any input and sorry if this has been answered in the past but I couldn't find it if so.

Of course it does, and even a multichannel Dolby TrueHD 5.1 @ 192kHz/24-bit (HDMI), like this guy here below:



♦ Some DVD Audio discs with 24/192 stereo tracks, some Blu-ray Audio (Pure Audio) discs, ...same thing.

The 4520 also handles the decoded 192Khz, 24 bit Dolby True HD track. So from a Sony PS4 it receives a 5.1, 192Khz, 24bit multi-channel pcm signal to the 4520.(I have my PS4 set to pcm output instead of bitstreaming)

But the DSP chip in the 4520 most probably down-samples the 192 kHz input signal to 48 kHz prior to processing when Audyssey engaged.
