I just hooked my xbox 360 up via HDMI into my Marantz SR4002 and I swear there is about a 7db-10db difference in where I had it before on optical. ANyone experience this?

It's possible. Are you comparing apples and oranges? In other words, are you comparing TrueHD, or Dolby Digital+ over HDMI vs DD/DTS over optical?

I was messing around with things and noticed the same thing on DD and especially DTS tracks. Not a huge difference, but if my normal listening level was 55 on optical it would be around 63 thru hdmi to get similar output. I have not a clue why, tho



an addition, anyone notice truehd tracks a couple of db quieter than regular dd?
