Recently in Best Buy the Onkyo 709 is at plus 77 and the Denon 2313 was I believe -3 and sounded similar. Is there a difference in the way the volume controls work between the 2 or is the Onkyo short on power?

It's how the volume set up is in the menu of a receiver. Mine is at THX specs if you will that shows the volume a minus whatever number the volume is at. Reference volume for me with my Integra 40.2 shows appox. -45 give or take.

Hello,

Onkyo has started doing the same and now at least since the x08, the Default Volume Setting is Absolute. In my TX-SR805, TX-SR875, TX-NR3007 the Default Volume Setting was Relative (THX).


Personally, I did switch to Relative as I have been using this Setting for at least 8-9 Years. I am surprised Onkyo switched this which I assume has carried over to the latest x09 Series.

Cheers,

AD

I would never assume you can translate 0 to 99 to a dB scale of any kind. Who knows what the math looks like internally.


I hope I never own a receiver that uses 0 to 99. At least the dB scale has some meaning.
