Thanks for your reply. So you're suggesting that I should avoid listening to music at levels higher than 80. As mentioned I have used volume at 85 and I haven't noticed any strange sounds, but maybe I'm wrong

This is normal with any modern D&M AVR as it uses a logarithmic volume scale such that average volume will be 50-70% of max.

There is no bass management when using DIRECT mode so the FL/FR speakers are treated as LARGE and get a full range signal. If you are passing a stereo 2.0 signal, the sub will not be active. If you do want the sub to receive a signal, set the sub to LFE+MAIN and the lower freq < FL/FR crossover will ALSO be sent to the sub in addition to being played by the FL/FR speakers (aka "double bass" mode).

I have bookshelf speaker that capable produce lowest freq around 48-50hz, so if want the sub blend with speaker and minimize the double bass effect, i should adjust the crossover in sub woofer?

Best configuration is to set bookshelf speakers to SMALL/80Hz.
