Please take the heat discussion elswhere and get this thread focused back on AVR-4520
I am in the process of setting up my (second) 4520, and I have encountered something I can't figure out. First, let me say that the new GUI is not an improvement, IMO, for someone who has had the prior (4311) GUI memorized. The thing that has me stumped right now is how to select the audio mode. For example, when I am playing musing from my Sonos, the 4520 select Stereo as the mode. I can't find in the menu where to change the mode to PLII Music. There is a row of buttons on the remote under the heading "Sound Mode", with four buttons, Movie, Music, Game, and Pure. When I press Movie, it changes to PLII Cinema. When I select Music, it changes to Stereo. When I select Game, it changes to Neo:X Game. And when I select Pure, it toggles between Direct and Pure Direct. Where the heck is PLII Music? And where are all of the adjustments for things like width?
Here are othger things I can't find:
- Surround Parameters screen, allowing changes to Panorama, Dimension, Width, etc.
- Dolby Volume
- Parameter chech screens, especially the EQ graphs
- Screen saver On/Off (I get the Denon logo when I play a non-video source like Sonos)
Unless I am missing something, the 4520 setup and configuration options have been "dumbed down" from the 4311. JD, please tell me I am wrong....
Couple of other pieces of info: Current F/W is 3325-8562-1375. Audyssey mic is mode ACM1HB. S/N starts with 208 (2012 August build date).
Temperature: using an infrared thermometer, the 4520 measures around 130 degrees, which is almost exactly the same as my 4311. The 4520 is in a open rack with 3 inches of clearance. All four sides are open for ventilation.
Later I will be posting some information regarding the Audyssey calibrations, both Standard and using the Pro Kit.
