Have a question for the members who use a Sony Receiver. I finally got around to setting up the H/T this weekend using to Digital Video Essentials, man what a job that was. Anyway, before using the DVE setup disc, I setup the AVR using the test tones built into the AVR. When watching a movie, it was plenty loud at around -50.0db to -45.0db. Now that my H/T has been setup with DVE, it seems I have to go up around -40.0db to get the same sound as I was getting at -50.0db. Is this normal, what I mean is it seems I'll strain the receiver more now that I have to go up -10.0db+/-. So, what volume level do the other Sony users have when they get up near or at reference level. If I'm not mistaken, I'll check to verify when I get home. But when I'm at reference levels using the DVE which they say to set a 75db., I think I'm at around -25.0db. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
