Yeah Kal,
I noticed that as well, but from the OP's last reply, he only wants a pre/pro and a power amp. Unlike myself, I use an AVR as a pre/pro along with a P7 for everything else.

Yeah, it only the main L/R speakers I do lower.

By comparison, the Dirac Room Correction SW I use with the Mac/P7 combo, never sounds compressed.
I usually have the EZset EQ on for movies.

If you plan on using the Marantz SR60006, then why do you need the NAD or Classe?

But I say again, diy, no matter how simple you think it might be, is not for the majority.
