What is interesting is that when I ran it at -10db we played WOTW and HTTYD. But, there was someone else in the house downstairs. I asked "how bad was that?" The reply I got was, "not so bad". Needless to say I was surprised. We shall see what happens in the future but it does seem that I can turn it up louder without strain in the room. Can't wait to get the right chairs. Way down the road, I am wondering if should replace my Bryston amps with a single amp. I am tying to cut down on the heat in the room. I can either look for an ICE amp, or maybe something from Parasound. I know they are class A/AB and they get a bit warm but I am thinking that even with that, it still may be better then the two ovens, I mean Bryston's I have now, But that is for a later date. Right now I am enjoying my system.
