I remember this question being asked quite a bit earlier in the thread. What it boils down to is that there is something off about the way Bestbuy sets up their systems, and the fact your are in a huge environment with lots of background noise.
From my use of just under a year... I usually watch TV with the volume between 25 to 35 (below 20 at night in quiet environment). I play my xbox 360 at about 20 to 30 volume. Movies around 30-35. I've only gone up to 40-45 on some channels, but this is most likely due to the source, not the receiver. I've never gone over 50, or to the max of 60 I believe. You can also adjust the speak levels themselves, I believe I have a couple of mine set to +2 (max is +10).
But the best thing to do would be to just buy the system and set it up at home and test it there. If you don't like it, then return it for a full refund.
