I don't think he uses Audyssey, although he should. Using maximum volume on the external "amp", actually a receiver in his case, will apply too much gain.


I use -10 dB on the Denon external receiver's EXT IN I use as my amp, regarding its volume knob. It seems to get the Audyssey calibration numbers in the right ballpark, but different sensitivity speakers, or if used at different distances than what I use, or in a different room would all undoubtedly net different values.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass any more than we get to pick the ending of a play. High fidelity is an unbiased, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original source's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

I do use Audyssey on the AV7005 and on the Denon, I'm running pure direct mode and just to be safe I set the EQ, speaker distance, etc. to zero.
On a side note I had much better results running Audyssey with the mic on a tripod than just setting the mic on top of the back of my couch. It was actually a night and day difference.
What I find odd is that I did not like sound after I ran the Audyssey on my Denon, however that was back when I purchased it in 2006.
Maybe my hearing has changed ..

The main reason for my question, was based on adding any unnecessary distortion running the Denon that high.

Thanks

Sorry, perhaps I misunderstood you originally when I said I didn't think you were using Audyssey.


Running the outboard receiver, as a power amp, is properly done with it set to "Direct mode" or "Pure Direct", yes, however if you select "Pure Direct" on your AV7005 [which is what I thought you meant in your earlier post, but must have misunderstood] you are no longer are using Audyssey and the various mic related corrections, nor your subwoofer output.
Sorry, my bad.

The location of the mic should be aiming straight up, biasing it slightly forward won't matter much but also won't hurt, however it has to be at exactly ear height at the seated ear position, and the back of the couch is not that location.
