Hi,

Lately I've been watching multiple movies in a given day. With that I've noticed a marked decrease in sound level despite the sound dB being the same level throughout during the second movie. When I watch a second movie I'm forced to turn the volume even higher on my Marantz receiver to compensate. Is this speaker fatigue? Or, is this an exhausted power reserve of the receiver itself (a phenomenon I've heard of on multiple occasions)?

My setup:
Artisan Sketch for fronts
Motion 10s for rears
Dynamo 300
Marantz SR 5006
PS3 as my player

Thank you

My (completely unscientific) opinion is that your ears are adjusting. When I start listening to music or watching a movie, I generally start out at moderate volumes and then increase it until it sounds good to me. If I take a break and come back and listen at the higher volume, it sounds REALLY loud at first. I often lower the volume and then work my way back up. I'm not sure this is good for my ears. smile.gif
