    Any interest in a very similar Denon 4311? The differences are listed below from an AVS thread.
    The **OFFICIAL** DENON AVR-4520CI thread - AVS Forum | Home Theater Discussions And Reviews

    What's the difference between the 4311ci and the 4520ci? Is it worth the extra for the newer 4520ci model?

    In terms of "the basics" they are VERY similar -- similar overall array of inputs/outputs, same XT32 + SubEQ room calibration software, 9 amp channels with basically the same amp section, Audyssey DSX with 11ch expansion, etc.... they both have 6 rear + 1 front HDMI input with dual outputs for Main Zone, 3 component video inputs with 1 output for Main Zone, 7.1ch EXT IN analog inputs, full 11.2ch pre-outs, Phono input, two 12v trigger outs, 2 optical and 2 coax digital audio inputs, etc.

    You can basically assume sound quality is close to identical!

    Really, very little was taken away vs. the 4311, so the question is do you want to pay extra for the new feature additions?

    - Zone 4 HDMI matrix output
    - Component video output to Zone 2 and Zone 3 (4311 can only output comp video to Main Zone)
    - Audyssey LFC
    - DTS Neo:X if you want an alternative to DSX for 11ch expansion
    - InstaPrevue
    - 4-port ethernet hub
    - More amp assign options plus the "custom" free assign mode
    - Upgrade to 32/192 DAC's (and corresponding upgrades to AL32 processing and DDSC-HD32 circuitry)
    - 4k video passthrough support and 4k upscaling
    - AirPlay built in (no upgrade needed) and Spotify and Sirius/XM available as network streaming sources
    - AirPlay can be played to Zone 2/3 independently from Main Zone (although there is still an initial "hijack" when you start Airplay)
    - Network audio supports 192/24 FLAC and WAV streams
    - Front HDMI input is MHL certified
    - New GUI (also will overlay on 3D sources, the 4311 can't overlay graphics on 3D video)
    - New front panel aesthetics, and 1" taller than the 4311
    - Composite inputs are now fully assignable

    So what's the *downside* to the 4520 vs the 4311?

    - the extra money (duh)
    - the change in DenonLink hardware, which doesn't afford backwards compatibility for the older DenonLink ethernet type cable
    - no more S-Video inputs (sorry LaserDisc fan!)
    - the front panel display only has one set of channel lights, which can be configured as either input channels or output channels
    - the 2CH Direct/Stereo custom settings can ONLY be used if you physically have a separate set of "B" dedicated 2CH speakers

    Hi sims,

    Thanks for offering but I don't think it's going to fit the bill even though I don't know the price :lesson:
