Thanks, Batpig. So is there a way to disable network standby mode?

You turn off network standby.
Quote:
Off In Standby : Suspend network function during standby.
Always On : Network is on during standby. Main unit operable with a network compatible controller.
• Set to “Always On” when using the web control function.
• With the “Always On” setting, you can use each NETWORK connector as the hub even while power
to this unit is set to standby.

Default is network "Always On"

OK, got it, thanks. Somehow I managed to search the manual and miss that. I appreciate the help.

The downside, of course, is that any other devices that might be connected to the network hub will lose their connections. For example, I have my two DirecTV DVR's on the hub, and occasionally set up a recording using the DTV web app when the 4520 is powered off. This wouldn't be possible unless Network Always On was set.

Can I use the second sub out on this receiver and tune my 18" sealed sub to just play 30 hertz and lower. I have (4) Epik Empires connected to sub 1 out.

Thanks...

The two sub outs receive an identical signal and are EQd as a summed response. So that kind of "splitting the load" functionality isn't really supported natively.

thx Batpig. You can set the volume for each sub out independently... Correct. Just not the freq.

If I go into my AVR and change the crossover settings or change my fronts from big to small, do I need to rerun Audyssey? My speakers were detected as large.

No. You may set the speakers to Small and set a crossover value with no effect on the Audyssey calibration. It is actually recommended to set all speakers to Small if you have a sub.

Yes. Also, my iPhone remote apps don't see the unit if it's not in Network Standby so I have to turn it on another way before I can use the app.

First i want to say thank you to everyone in the community. I have learned so much from all of you. So I have two more questions.

1. Audyssy set my crossover on all my speakers to 40hz with the exception of my center channel it set it to 60hz. Should I change the crossovers to 60hz or leave them where they are at.

2. I am looking for a 10ft trigger to go from my Denon to my Emotiva XPA-3 Gen 2. The one that came with the Emotiva was too short. I have been looking and haven't been able to find one.

Thanks/

OK to raise the crossovers to any value you like.  If you have a capable sub, I would raise all satellites to 80Hz.

 

You should be able to pick up a longer mono cable at a Radio Shack store.  Take the short one with you and show it to them.  It will be very inexpensive.

Thanks I'll give that a try

I think I may have figured out what my 4520ci is trying to do: it is giving me the message on the Front Display it is in "H/P input on" when first turned on.
And because of this, is not outputting sound to my speakers.
In other words, it believes it is hooked up to headphones when it is not.

Anyone else having this problem?
post #5655 of 7690
This a problem that is quite common with the XX09 models, but don't recall any 4520CI owners experiencing it.
post #5656 of 7690
Is this caused by a defective headphone jack, JD? You may recall that I returned a 4520 for replacement because of a defective headphone jack as well as a defective calibration mic jack, which I believe are on the same board.
post #5657 of 7690
Sorry, it's been too long since then and had indeed forgotten, although likely related if your unit also displayed the "H/P input ON" message. The issue with the XX09 models is caused by build up of dust on the connections rather than a defective jack.

My 4520 is a direct from Denon refurbish.
Must not have been "refurbished" after all.rolleyes.gif

I would first try the solution used with the XX09 models which is to blow compressed air into the headphone jack or insert/remove a headphone plug a few times.

When I try to enter the code to control my Cambridge Audio BD player, I get the FAIL message
Actually, the code for Cambridge BD players is not on the list?
40157 is the only Cambridge code on the entire list
Is there a solution?
Thanks

Hey Guys,

I am trying to play two different audio sources on Zone 1 vs. Zone 2. I can get the same audio (airplay) to play on both but am unable to watch TV on Zone 1 while listening via airplay on Zone 2. Is this not possible?

Do you need more power? I have always heard that it's best to have too much than not enough. You want to be able to handle the spikes without distorting everything below. Headroom.
As so many have repeated... it depends on how loud you like to listen.
I like loud. I wanted to be able to feel the power. At levels like that you can hear if there is something weak in the system.

My current setup using the 4520 only uses the AVR amps for the four surrounds.

My front LCR's are Seaton CAT12's and a Seaton CAT8 center. These are self powered with a total of 5000 watts.

Sub is SVS PB-13 Ultra.

Total system power 4 x 150 + 750 (sub) + 5000 = 6350 watts

I think I'm done for a while.

Seriously though right now I think my only real complaint with the 4520ci is the lousy remote with the almost unreadable display that constantly flashes on and off even if you walk past it. Horrible for a flagship unit.

If you are able to drive your speakers, in your room, to the SPL levels you require, without clipping, then more power won't serve any useful purpose. So the question is, can you?  If yes, then you are all set. If no, then more power might be useful.

 

Having "too much" power is pointless. If your speakers can be cleanly driven to xxdB using Y watts, then having 5Y watts won't make any difference. The additional power will be left on the table.

 

Here is a very good AVS thread that goes into a lot of detail about it and which hasn't - so far - been derailed by 'audiofools':

Ah well... they are worth having, no doubt about that.  And appearance too - some of those McIntosh amps look totally wikkid. There are lots of good reasons for buying big, shiny, new amps. It's just that improved sound quality isn't usually one of them ;)  If I had my amps on show, I'd love a pair of those big Macs with huge meters and stuff.  I'd get a load of pleasure from owning them - but none of it would be audible, in my case.

New FW found tonight (9/9/2013) for the 4520CI. Says 7 mins to download. Did Main, then saw Ether IMG, then a quick reboot, and back to menu OK.

Was 3325-0843-4401 now updated to 3325-3843-4485.
post #5670 of 7690
New Firmware also for European versions of AVR-4520.
