What are your speaker and sub trims set to? If they are set quite high then the max volume is limited in order to preserve headroom. For example, if you have a total trim boost of 15dB then your max...

You answered your own question. If you are bass-managing the speaker, then all it needs is good performance down to just below the crossover you will use. So if you are using a 100Hz XO on those...

I do and I am very happy with it. I chose it because it is the only quality PJ that has a throw suitable for my small room, in order to get the biggest picture size possible. But I am delighted with...

No. If you switch off all tone controls and DSP, they should sound identical, or so close as to be unable to reliably differentiate anyway. Modern SS electronics don't have a 'sound' of their own...

The overheads don't handle anything like as much content as the mains so they don't need to be huge, especially as I assume you have a bass-managed system and are crossing the lower frequency content...

It's possible she may be a bit deaf of course, especially if she is older. Does she show any signs of hearing loss? Mine has good hearing and I worry that if he is exposed to -5dB for two hours at a...

But that's just as bad from the POV of a fair comparison. I guess I could switch Audyssey off for both configs? In my treated room, Audyssey is cake icing rather than massive correction so it sounds...

Yes but a comparison with one using Audyssey and the other not isn't a fair comparison and may influence unfairly my perception of Auro.
