You set the volume control for how loud you want things. Movies if you focus on the dialog are within a 10 dB or less range, but that is a lot. Classical or some jazz may be simar but most music is...

+1. Of course, we don't know what the OP means by "imaging" so it's certainly possible that we are simply miscommunicating.

I loved my Maggies and drove them happily with my former Bryston amp, a low power Arcam, and my Denon receiver. I don't listen terribly loud but before I bought the receiver I found a couple of...

You're gonna have to trouble shoot. Since the sub is the new thing, look there first. Check all connections first. An almost unplugged preamp input or even a funkified speaker connection could...

people are talking about a reference level of 103 or 105 or 106 dB, so it's a little disingenuous to simply say nobody suggests setting ref at those levels. Reference level isn't the max. Maybe a...

sorry to be a jerk but if lifting a finger to turn up the volume control is really beyond your ability to stand, then you're in trouble. eVen CDs will have up to 10 dB difference (that's half or...

+1. FWI, unloaded channels (infinite impedance, in effect) are bad with tube amps, but have zero effect on solid state amps, as FMW suggests.
