Exactly. Thinking a power cord is somehow going to filter "dirty power" doesn't make sense. It's a cable, not a filter.

You made my day. So now you're an "experienced audio engineer?" That fish gets bigger every time you tell the story.

See what I mean, thehun? It's truly amazing.

A difference of 2dB is nowhere near a "doubling of volume." It's a noticeable, but fairly subtle, difference in volume. A "doubling of (perceived) volume" would be closer to 10dB.

Frequency response, on axis, and off axis, up to 20kHz -- with the lower range of that (2-10kHz) likely being of more *audible* importance than the highest octave (10kHz to 20kHz).

Many amps can go well above 20kHz no problem. A fair number of tweeters can as well. But the redbook CD standard only goes to 22kHz. High-res (high sample rate) media can have higher frequency...

Try unplugging the Denon and then plugging it back in.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset on it (ask how to do a reset in one of the thread in the Receivers section of this forum).

It might be slightly stuck to the finish and/or paint of the cabinet. Maybe a butter knife or plastic knife or something and *gently* pry it out by going around the perimeter and working it loose?
