4520 TONE CONTROL FUNCTION
I have a 4520 (a second unit,first one was returned)
The first one, the tone control only affected the FR and FL speakers, no other.
I contacted DENON and after a few days they called me back to tell me they did not think that was normal.
So I returned the unit and ordered a replacement from a different seller.
Turns out this second unit is doing the same thing, tone control only affects the FR and FL speakers.
There is no effect on all other speakers (Surround,Center,Surround Back etc. etc.)
I have tried the processing modes (widescreen,multi-channel...etc. and the results are all the same)
What I am finding is the tone control only adjusts the FL and FR speakers, the rest of the other speakers/channels are adjusted by the graphic equalizer.
Any one else have similar experiences?
I don't have 4520ci (yet), but I thought this was an important question, so I glanced though the manual. You may already have tried the following so not sure if my reply is going to help, but just trying to keep your question "alive" for others who actually have the unit can chime in.
If Dynamic EQ is ON, or if you have DSD or pure direct, you can't do tone control. This obviously is not your case since you can do tone control for the front two channels. If your listeinig mode is stereo in any zone (even if your input signal is multi-channel), only front two channels can have tone control for that specific zone. Try multichannel stereo and see if it helps. Denon's chart for Tone cotrol functionality shows:
