I just submitted this as an upgrade requset to Marantz:
I have recently upgraded my amp to an ATI 3005 300 WPC that is connected to my Revel Speakers.
It has a peak indicator and I found that I can play at -3 for most content without clipping.
At -5 DB, I appear to be safe from clipping.
The 10 DB increments are too large that represents at least 4 times the power.
My Onkyo Preamp let you just pick a number betwen 59 and 99.
Most other PreaPlease have a finer scale for the maximum volume setting.
