I just purchased a 4520 a month or so ago. My previous receivers were a 4810ci and before that a 4802R. I have it set up in 11.2. My main speakers (and my center speaker) are Infinity P-fr's. My side surrounds are Infinity Overture 1's (soon to be replaced with P-fr's) and my height,wide and rear surrounds are Infinity Overture 1's.
I have a Emotiva XPA-1 powering my center speaker, An XPA-2 powering the mains, An XPA-5 powering the side and rear surrounds. The heights and wides are powered by the 4520. My subs are a pair of CHT 18.2's powered by a MQ-600 pro amp.
I'm in process of switching from Windows to Mac. I purchased a MacBook Pro to play iTunes without all of the glitches I've fought with Windows over the years.
My question is this; I listen to Multi Channel Music and it sounds great in my A/V room but I have run upon an issue I cannot figure out. My MacBook is connected to my router and then my 4520. When plain iTunes (as I am right now) the volume limits itself to appx 75% volume. When turning up the volume on the 4520 it will briefly go up to say 78 or 79 on the volume scale and then it decreases (by itself) back down to 74 or 75 almost instantly. I checked my settings on the 4520 and the scale is set to 0-98, and the Volume Limit is set to "Off". The volume on my MacBook in iTunes is at full volume. Do you have any ideas?
It is quite loud as is (appx 104 or 105 dB in the center of the room but I am used to quite a few more dB than that when having parties. (I know it is not advisable but I like it loud sometimes). I DO NOT LIKE MY EQUIPMENT ACTING AS A NANNY and limiting the volume. I do have Audyssey engaged and have not tried it with it turned off but it does not limit me when watching movies or playing music through my CD player.
Any Help Will Be Greatly Appreciated.
