Denon AVR-4520 + DBT-3313 UD in the Test

The mystery of a world class Orchestra? Precision in detail, perfection in combination. And a conductor, who controls everything. With this recipe, also is premium station wagon from universal player and AV receiver from Denon ready for the big show.

Clear the stage for great cinema. Or the big concert. The star Duo by Denon in the guise of the stately receiver flagship AVR-4520 and his congenial Kompanions DBT-3313 UD will naturally shine at every appearance. To bring both excellent not only as a solo artist investments, they have voted themselves also harmoniously together.

Denon link HD

One of the hobbyhorses of Denon Development Department is the meticulous crafting the perfect link between player and amplifier. Especially if it’s sensitive Digital audio data and in particular, if these all things imaginable are to take the Most unsuitable transmission path for this: HDMI. The default created once primarily for the safe transport of the flood of image data takes audio data only as a Hitchhiker and not just squeamish to deal specifically with the sensitive measure information – video signals and their selection cycle priority here. For the correct return of the audio data in their analogue equivalents but the details of the selection cycle are elementary. Temporal inaccuracies (jitter, to german tremors) manifest themselves often audibly.

Early man advanced this core problem with a particular type of connection on the Chapel, the Denon Link for Denon. The latest variant is the addition of “HD” and conducts a simple coaxial cable to the clock of the Master clock of the amplifier to the player via. Awesome: This eliminates the guesswork around the right time information – selection – and stroke of reconstruction of are the same. This of course only works with player and amplifier from the same home with the right Denon-link HD interface. Advantage: This Jitter control is straightforward on any digital signal in the player applies (unlike previous Denon link variants) and brings significant improvements. The HDMI jitter weapon is particularly important for the DBT-3313 UD , than that he all signals (and not a few are as universal players including network capabilities) are exclusively via HDMI – if one disregards the analog output for stereo signals.

Denon AVR-4250: Construction

Not only in conjunction with the 3313 UD told to consistently fight the jitter. The AVR-4520 infiltrates every incoming via HDMI and SPDIF digital signal at the “jitter reducer” in addition–a specially programmed clock accurately synchronized further cooperation between DSP and converter unit based on the same three supplied clock signals. If you then still mentioned, that are there just seven of the best 32-bit DACs by BurrBrown (now Texas instruments) take care of the audio data, you know it in good hands.

Finally, it is the AVR-4250 as current top model of the Denon receiver in the succession of show sizes such as the AVR-4810 and of course in the spotlight. For the career in the nation’s living rooms, he brings the right attitude: nothing must, can do everything. His equipment is remarkably thoughtful instead of needlessly cluttered. So all the features found in the 4520 of course, needed for sustained serious home theater – persistent, because with three HDMI outputs and 4 k-video-signal processing (also known as the ultra HD: resolutions with at least 3840 x 2160 pixels) already thinks about the possibilities of tomorrow. Also the “InstaPrevue”-function, which quickly into the picture signal of the six HDMI inputs can be opponent, will win many fans.

With its nine power amplifiers and the 11.2-preamp outputs allow AVR-4520 downright adventurous speaker setups, in detail listed in Word and image in the excellent On-screen menu . That and the clean menu structure have earned already an extra praise: Finally, configure an AV receiver instead of headache is even really fun! Although intended for the AVR-4520 primarily at users who know exactly what they want – but in case of necessity also a picture book prepared Setup Wizard walks through the Setup procedure.

I’m sure that this forward-looking concept a built-in Streaming Client with access to Internet radio, the music subscription service, and of course on your home network should not be missing operating UPnPServern. And because probably tired was the perpetual moaning of the AUDIO editors about missing Gapless playback Denon, is able to fill this gap in the truest sense of the media client – at least in FLAC and WAV files. The three additional Ethernet jacks ennobling the AVR-4520 to the audiovisual and network technical hub on his back – he serves as a distribution node (hub) other devices with Internet access needs.

Optics and processing of Denon UD DBT-3313 are excellent and tasteful elegance of the AV-amplifier colleagues equal. The very clear menu that gives no guesswork in spite of the amazingly diverse possibilities of the player is useful. The functional diversity, with which he can go is more than good. The player accepts all slices, the tone in higher resolutions and more channels offer not only, as the despicable CD. Also the communication over the Ethernet interface with the in-house network and is represented, DNLA Standard media servers (network disks with Twonky server software around, or even PCs with Windows Media Player) is one of his talents.

Here he alone is limited to music data in all common formats and resolutions up to 192 kHz, 24-bit FLAC and WAV (However no gapless playback). As true AV Player, he takes photos and especially videos (including the popular DivX). Access to YouTube (in a special, not as overloaded version) is installed on existing Internet connection. Almost superfluous to mention that 3313 video images from Blu-ray disc in 3D to pass enabled displays. Who operates the player in conjunction with one of the latest Denon receiver, can also enabled HDMICEC control “Denon remote app” use as a control unit for the Player control. However, the player can be say anything solo from inside the app.

T for ‘Transport’ in the shortcut was probably attached to the player due to the dominant HDMI output – he diligently decodes all the signals, sends them but more channel pure digital. He converts to Stereo signals However even for the analog output through the RCA output . The professional recognizes that was trimmed of 3312 on as high-quality playback of music, on the three Pure direct modes: In three steps can be the video signal on HDMI output (and display) on ice, to avoid disturbing Secondary Warhouses in the circuits. And with success: could you track the effect of the pure direct mode immediately – immediately sovereign got the sound image and won on contour.

AVR-4520: hearing test

During your first tries, the AVR-4520 demonstrated also his tonal sovereignty. Even with power-greedy boxes he furniture messing up to shake without having the protection circuit just thinking about jumping on. The less Watt powerful (but Brilliant with extra preamp circuits) Marantz SR 7007 tried the brother from the DM group because more with his exquisite velvet, to deal with warm tones and with its extra mild female voices.

In the bass much impulsive and more succinctly and topless without any Strähnigkeit lights–even stereo playback the Denon returned the initiative quickly itself. Surround playback , the AVR-4250 so unmistakeably showed who’s boss DM. Plastic was the drums, such as those of Fetzer’s by John Medeski (Concord), on access, the bass was delighted just with blackness and depth. Could Arcams AVR 360 range it date still water, with perfect guitar finesse, 4250 HD sound AVR finally sought the supremacy. A large Orchestra with heavy Steinway grand piano in the middle of Denon promised more more air and more shine, briefly: the perfect appearance.

DBT-3313 Denon UD + AVR-4520: hearing test

Clock control in conjunction with the AVR-4520 via Denon Link HD immediately produced a more spatially figure with a quieter, more stable foundation. Especially the deep and fundamental seemed to benefit from the Anti-jitter measure and Government then tightened the sound events to the highlights. Not only with high-resolution audio material, significantly more profile received from BD or DVD-audio – music from the network or CD via Denon link HD.

Conclusion

The AVR-4520 has everything you need for a long, trouble-free home theater life: a good mix of power and sound, excellent usability and amenities, which scores not so much with gimmicks as with really long term useful features.
