Same here, also fully treated. I listen to most movies at about -5dB. I call it 'home reference'.

So I see - I must have missed the other replies. Odd - sometimes the AVS pages don't refresh properly - for example, sometimes I will post a reply and it is on a page I can't see! Weird bug I suppose.
