Looking for an AV Receiver with “Loudness” button or control.


I use vintage Cerwin Vega main speakers (10" woofers), and find that just about all the newer AV receivers that I have tried, don’t seem to produce enough bass. I’m NOT using a sub at the moment. Using a Cerwin Vega Center channel … wall mounted BA satellite rear speakers. (5.0).


I’ve tried an H/K 1565, Marantz 1402, Pioneer 1021K, etc. In Stereo Mode (which I do 50% of my listening), my vintage receiver (Rotel) … which has loudness, just boosts the bass very nicely. Especially, at lower volumes.


I have done a search, seems like some of the older Yamahas had a control, but not sure about anything newer that still has HDMI, etc.


Would a Sony STR-DH540, with “Night” mode (turned on, the bass, treble, and effect levels increase) and Bass & Treble controls in addition be an option?


Thoughts?

IME a fine solution to the problem described above can be obtained from AVRs such as my Denon 1913 that have a feature called Audyssey Dynamic Eq as described in more detail at http://www.audyssey.com/technologies/dynamic-eq
