I think you may have made a mistake in your post. Perhaps you meant to say, "I think its safe to say that HDMI on a Denon 4520 is notoriously quirky for me".

Or perhaps you meant to say, "I think its safe to say that HDMI in general is notoriously quirky".

If you have been following this thread since Day 1, you would see that the 4520 has no more HDMI issues than any other AVR make/model.

no I didn't make a mistake


of the 20 or so AVR's I have owned in the last 5-7 years...the 4520 is the only one that has given me the myriad of issues with wonky HDMI hand shake issues


Experiences that are mirrored with what others have described in this thread


While HDMI could be quirky...especially in the early days of implementation...99% of those issues are no longer there and can many times be simply solved by turning HDMI control "off"


That is not the case with the 4520..and again mirrors issues being described here by others.
Even in cases of older( and in some cases more expensive pieces than the 4520) units I had no such issues


I have been following this thread for more than a year...as I have of the other manufacturers of AVR's and pre/pros that I either owned or was interested in buying


I would disagree with you on the frequency of reported HDMI handshake issues in those threads vs this one


but again...just my experience and the reading of others

I have been lucky probably because they knew I was a regular customer at a particular store


if you read the fine print
They are not obligated to give you anything more..value wise...than what you had invested


However...as I said before I have been lucky
I once bought an Onkyo receiver for 65% off retail at Magnolia..it failed a couple of times(HDMI board)
On the third attempt they gave me full MSRP back in store credit towards another AVR....so $700 extra in my favor that I didn't spend in the first place


However...don't count on that as the black and white on the agreement specifies what their obligation is


Warren
Thanks Warren, I really did know what the black & white was but I was hoping for more stories like yours that they matched the MSRP. Thanks for the reply - I don't have my hopes up but hopefully they will get a replacement board.But I'm grateful for the Panurgy feedback also.

If I was you, I'd just hook up the mains as full range and forget about trying to use the DefTech "subs" as subs.
Alan, do you think there is any benefit of running the L/R pre-outs to the "LFE" of the Def Techs?
