Had some friends over last night that have watched movies in my theater many many times. But this was the first time they heard the full 11.1 channels going with a movie. And they all like movies fairly loud!
Watched Looper - OMG, the 4520 ( and a Emo XPA 200 amp ) just SLAMMED the room ! With the full compliment of new Martin Logan Motion speakers, the soundfield is very dynamic and detailed. One friend picked out instantly that there were sound effects coming from much higher than before. Another really liked the Wide speakers ( watched using NEO:X ). And, they both commented on how the dialog was much easier to understand than with the previous reciever ( that was unsolicited ). It was unanimous - the new 4520 and 11.1 ( at least with the new speakers I have ) totally rock!! They loved it !!
I'm extremely pleased with this setup. It has been worth all the time, effort and expense to upgrade. Now for some serious movie watching! Last nights gang are all coming back to watch a movie tonite !! Edited by Craig Peer - 6/27/13 at 9:04am
