Hi all.. Recently picked up a Yamaha AV720.. I used to use a pioneer D511. It had a loudness feature that I pretty much always used..
Anyhow, the new one does not.. I tend to have to take this new Yamaha to -22 or -20 depending on the source to get good loudness for music and movies.. Of course the source does determine some of this, but generally a good quality loud track -25 and up is needed.. I was wondering if I could get some comparisons if this is "normal: for this receiver.. My Pioneer did similar volume at -40 or -38.. Anyhow, please provide some listening level comparisons on the AV720 if you can..
