Just got new RBH signature reference front and center bookshelves to pair with my SVS subs.
So, I ran Genesis again with the latest version.
Again, it set the dolby offset of my Anthem 60 to -12, so my speaker levels are all between -4 and +6, with my subs set to -5. Essentially, it's setting my speakers to around 62 dB and my sub to about 71 dB with the room gain added. (I backed my room gain down so that they measure about 69 dB.) The overall system level setting in Genesis is based on about 98dB on the graph.
It seems to be using the offset so my speaker levels aren't maxed one way or the other. Also, my Anthem MCA 225w x 5 amp plays the sweeps quite a bit louder than my B&K 125w x 7 amp, so that accounts for the difference in level settings.
That's three times I've run Genesis where it has adjusted the overall system level setting by changing my offset from 0 to -12. I then just set checked all the speakers levels and adjusted them slightly so everything is at 62 dB.
The sound is fantastic, but the approach is very different than anything I've seen with ARC in the past or Audyssey.
