Distinguished by its impressive stature and comprehensive features, the Denon IN-Command AVR-4520CI A/V Receiver is a centerpiece addition to any home theater system and the flagship model in Denon's line of IN-Command A/V Receivers. It delivers 150 watts per channel--more than enough power for the largest of rooms and the most demanding of speakers. With seven HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs, the receiver lets you enjoy high-definition audio and video from a range of devices in multiple rooms. The AVR-4520CI incorporates true multi-zone HDMI audio/video distribution with its HDMI matrix-switching functionality.
The AVR-X4000 features Audyssey Platinum, Denons most robust level of Audyssey support with Audyssey MultEQ XT32, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Audyssey Dynamic EQ, Audyssey DSX, Audyssey Sub EQ HT, Audyssey LFC, and Audyssey Pro.
Audyssey MultEQ XT32 harnesses the power of sophisticated DSP processing, measures the acoustic output of the speakers and subwoofers, and generates multiple digital EQ filters with 256 times the resolution of standard MultEQ. This provides the smoothest, most natural tonal balance in virtually any room. Audyssey DSX offers the option of front wide and front height speakers which are placed to the left and right or above the main front speakers to broaden the width and/or height of the soundstage, making the audio experience more impressive, engaging, and believable. Audyssey Dynamic Volume senses the impending arrival of very loud sounds and automatically reduces the difference between normal and extra-loud programming. Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts subwoofer and surround speaker levels for maximum performance at any playback volume. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual tailoring for dual subwoofer setups. Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) provides a full range tonal balance for late-night listening that minimizes the intrusion of deep bass content into adjacent rooms or spaces. The AVR-X4000 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready.

What's in the Box
Got everything i paid for and then some
This review is from: Denon AVR-4520CI 9.2 Channel 4K Video 3D Networking Receiver with Airplay
Pros: Air play, DLNA support, Lots of power, Very immersive sound. Crystal clear, you'll hear sounds in movies you've never heard before. Being able to save more than one set up for Audyssey.
Cons: Lots of testing and calibration needed. Tons of options and certain options that only turn on for certain types of signals. If you don't enjoy the challenge of making it sound they way you like, could be a problem.
Other Thoughts: Took a bit of trial and error before getting it to sound like it should. Don't get me wrong out of the box its amazing. Put in some time, do a few Audyssey test and if you aren't on the edge of your seat watching a movie you've seen 10 times theres something wrong. Theres so many options and ways to set this receiver up, you'll really need to do your research and decide what works for you. Thats the biggest perk, it will sound how you want it to. If your not satisfied just keep at it you'll definitely find a setting that is what you were wanting. I mean if my wife who is perfectly happy with listening to a alarm clock for music says this is now her favorite room of the house and gets excited to watch movies at home. What more needs to be said.
