You right, going by those measurements they were neck and neck.

However...all three of them( with Audyssey engaged) has the same pluses and minuses that I have to adjust...and really have the same type of sound

hence the reason for my statement

when I hear these people talk about sound stage and sonic signature differences....I dont hear that
While I have heard differences in components before
what I listed above not so much

so..IMO....save your money and buy the cheapest of the models I listed above

I replaced my 4520 with an Marantz 8801 and Outlaw 7500... You may not think there is much difference ....I had a huge difference. But I turn my system up.. Maybe for movies I would agree with you . But musically , no comparison...

huge?

Well...I will tell you that I dont think that the Denon 4520..Marantz 8801 or my old Onkyo 5508 are very musical pieces
The main reason probably being is I don't really like Audyssey for music and got some better results(IMO) running pure direct
I have heard several pieces I preferred to any of the three for music...granted, not in the same price range as they are
But nevertheless, a lot more musical and natural sounding

I consider all them home theater pieces at their core

My 4520 keeps switching HP/INPUT on and off, which cuts the audio from the speakers. I've tried to clean the jack with compressed air, and a 1/4 headphone plug plus some alcohol, but the problem persists. Is there a way to disable the headphone jack?

Thanks in advance.
