I'm pretty new to starting my gear collection, and I am saving up for the rest later.. I currently have a 2.0 which consists of a Marantz SR5007 and a pair of B&W CM5s.
My questions are this:
1.) At what decibel do you consider a somewhat loud decibel on your avr/pre? Granted in my situation the setup is in my rather small room, roughly 10x15, and it's less than ideal. On my Marantz I generally listen to movies/music/gaming anywhere from -45.0dB to -35.0dB. I was just wondering what everyone else generally set their dB at for general listening. I've always been nervous to let loose, for fear of messing up my speakers haha.
2.) I've ran my Audyssey, and I'm just curious what EQ setting to set it to. Virtual usually sounds to the loudest and fullest. Or i can do: Stereo / Auto / Multi Channel In. What's correct?
Any help is appreciated.
