If this is the case, why hasn't anthem changed/fixed this additional gain? Or is that something else?
I thought that the whole clipping distortion thing was only reported by a few people with Anthem receivers rather than the AVM 60 pre/pro. In any case, if you are worried about it, just subtract 10 dB.
I too have been very impressed with ARC Genesis. Yes my levels are up by a few dB relative to the old ARC but that is not a problem. Genesis gives a whole new level of customizability to Anthem Room Correction, or just let it do its thing. It is nice to have that choice.
