It would also have been nice that I own one of the latest Denon/Marantz receivers. ...Coming up, in 2015, with a Marantz pre/pro.
- I'm glad that somewhere Denon mentioned it in their manual.

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

Thanks!
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 !
