Welcome to a review of Denon’s AVR-X3000 7.2 Channel Home Theater Receiver. This is a pretty exceptional home theater receiver although not problem free. This device is a touch trickier to set up then one would like but with a little experience with these devices it shouldn’t be an issue. The front panel is very clean looking, not a lot of buttons and knobs. This makes it very easy to manually select your input device.

The remote control that comes with the AVR-X3000 is part number, RC-1184. The RC-1184 remote control will get you through the setup process and is easy to navigate.

Connect the AVR-X3000 to your home network and open up a whole new world of listening enjoyment.

The AVR-X3000 output sound is exceptional. The 5.1 speakers are loud and clear and there is plenty of power behind them. One last thing to note, the unit is also not very energy efficient. There appears to be no way to power it down completely without unplugging it, which causes it to lose the setup configuration data.

Overall this is a superb unit and has a lot of versatility. Though it is not perfect it does have a lot of great features.

RATING: 4.2/5.0

Welcome to a review of Denon’s AVR-X4000 7.2 Channel Home Theater Receiver. It has been stated that Denon makes some of the best affordable home cinema receivers. This is a receiver for serious AV fans, and makes a few more upgrades to the aesthetics than some of Denon’s lower end models. Its front panel has a retractable cover that hides all of the buttons and sockets, leaving just the two knobs and the display visible – a smart look.

This is an easy receiver to setup and with the help of the included remote control, part number RC-1185, you will get through all the menu options and features with ease.

There are a few other features that make the AVR-X4000 standout from the rest. Perhaps most significantly, the AVR-X4000 has three HDMI outputs – entry-level receivers only have one. Two of the outputs have to share a source, letting you, for example, plug in a projector and TV to the same piece of video equipment while the third can take video and audio from a completely different source. This lets the Denon AVR-X4000 become the ‘brain’ of a multi-room setup.

You can set up the AVR-X4000 to enjoy music and video in the main room, while others enjoy music and video in a second room. A second zone HDMI output lets others enjoy a different program in another room, and the Amp Assign function lets you use two of the amplifier channels to drive stereo speakers in the second room. By connecting a stereo amp to the AVR-X4000, you can even have a third audio source playing in another room. This is an excellent feature for families with different tastes.

Consumers are raving about the multiple great features and impressive high quality sound. This receiver may appear a bit pricey by some but it definitely has the power and quality that make it worth the price.

Welcome to a review of Denon’s AVR-4520CI, 9.2 Channel Home Theater Receiver. The nine-channel AVR-4520CI helps to make the sonic portion of home theater as realistic as possible, allowing you to add height or width speakers for even greater presence. It is said that surround sound isn’t just something you hear, but something you feel; from those rumbling effects that seem to emerge from deep beneath your room, to the subtle sonic details that re-create each movie’s unique atmosphere. A surround sound receiver needs a bedrock of good, clean power to really move you. Denon’s AVR-4520CI boasts enough amplification to fill even a large room with precise-yet-punchy sound, and dual subwoofer outputs let you add a second sub for bass that’s well-balanced throughout your room.

You will receive a fully functional remote control, part number RC-1165. This remote will help you through the setup process and all the menu options and features, so that you can adjust your AVR-4520CI to the exact specifications that make it your sound.

For the most accurate home theater sound possible in any room, you get Audyssey MultEQ® XT32, which is a sophisticated automatic speaker calibration system. The AVR-4520CI uses an included microphone to analyze sound, then automatically adjusts individual level, equalization, and delay settings for each of your speakers. Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 is equipped with high-resolution equalization filters that allow it to optimize speaker settings even in large or odd-shaped rooms.

Many have said that the AVR-4520CI is a keeper. It sounds great, has almost all the features most are seeking. However, there have been some consumer issues with the AVR-4520CI having a “zone 4” pass through and not having a Zone 2 HDMI independent signal.
