I'm between 50-70 on the A/V receiver volume normally, depending on the sound source. So not that high I suppose.

I'm not using Dynamic EQ. Also, I've tried it both with Audyssey configuration and...

Thanks for the suggestions. I have to one make very important correction though; the room is ~250 feet^2 (and not ~2500 feet^2 as I wrote before). I screwed up the metric conversion from 25 m^2 in...

Sure, but it's enough to conclude that some frequency ranges have an audio level compensation of around +/- 10 dB, right? Since that's what the Graphic EQ shows in my case.

So I wonder if that is...

You're not actually looking at the real Audyssey EQ, rather simply a very crude representation when viewing the Graphic EQ. Additionally, speakers can react very differently from one room to...

I just wonder if there are any high quality Class-D A/V Receivers on the market? I'm been looking some, but have not found much.

A/V-Receiver sound speaker levels - already compensated for loudspeaker sensivity?

On most A/V receivers you can set the sound compensation level for each individual speaker (i.e. +/- X dB). But does the A/V receiver already compensate for the speaker's sensitivity? Because...
