OK, now I am on the same wave length. I now find -20db to be a good listening level. It does seam a little more balanced, especially the surrounds. The dialog even seam clearer. I did have to increase the sub output by about 5 each in order to feel more impact, but it didn't overpower like it was doing before.
Thanks for your patience.
