Yeah, I though you were interested in matching input levels. According to the 1913's user manual, its inputs are independently adjustable.
Here's an excerpt:
• This function corrects the playback level of the selected input source’s audio input.
• Make this setting if there are differences in the input volume levels between the different sources.
–12dB – +12dB (0dB)
You sort of switched tracks here. You now want your Denon to produce the same SPL as your HK.
Get your SPL meter and measure the SPL of the HK while it's playing at your normal level, then measure the Denon's SPL while adjusting its master volume until you reach the SPL you measured while listening to the HK. Make a note of the setting.
Dunno why you care. :shrug:
+5 master volume is quite high. But, is it safe? Zell, is it safe?
I dunno, but if the Denon shuts itself off, then turn it down and stay out of the + range.
