I have a question about volume. I know there were some chats about this in the past few pages, but I want to make sure that what I'm experiencing is normal. Normal listening volume for TV and movies is between -18 and -30db. A few pages back a few of you cited -15 to - 20 so I figure that I'm pretty on target there.
Two questions: First, I'm used to my old 2001 Denon 5.1 where the volume started at -60db and at -58 I could hear the source material. On the Pioneer, I'm not hearing anything until about -53, and the volume starts at -80. Is this normal? If not, what could it be? I'm just not used to cranking the volume to 30% before I hear SOMETHING. Seems like on this unit you are near maxed out -20, before its pretty loud, and then you only have, what, 30db before you are fully maxed on dial? Again, first new receiver in 10+ years.
Second, my tv (comcast) and blu-Ray volumes are the same, but my XBOX 360 volume is quite a bit louder. I'd say about 10db louder. Is there a reason for this? Its HDMI as well, so I wonder if there is a setting somewhere I'm missing?
