Just purchased the Denon 1913 last week among the good reviews and helpful knowledge everyone in the forum has offered. I just bought the Jamo HCS 426 surround system and a PSW505 12-Inch Powered Sub to round out my new collection. I do have some questions in regards to the audio output, which it seems I have to turn up the volume a lot more than I did with the Onkyo receiver. I assumed this was just normal with the Denons based on the forum posts I've seen here, but wasnt sure, so i wanted to make sure theres nothing i'm missing. I did the setup for the Audyssey, but I'm in a townhouse, so theres not much in the way of 6 different places to move around to.
Also, The upscaling to 1080p, I'm a Veriozn FIOS user, and I have the STB setup to broadcast at 1080i, so is the the upscaling even necessary for that type of source? I didnt see too much difference, but I wanted to have a secondary opinion (besides my wife, who always states she cant hear or see anything different). Should i set the STB to 720P, then upscale to 1080p?
Finally, I do see the display show an "offset -7db" and was wondering if that is in the audio source or it can be adjusted. If I'm already -7db, wouldnt that mean I'm already going to have to turn up the volume louder to compensate?
I appreciate all the help anyone may give, or any opinions, either way.
