    Default Tone Settings?

    I have Denon 887 and a set of RTi12's what are average tone levels you guys run at? I have it set on Bass +2 and treble +4

    No, it's not a stupid question.

    I'd have to say that the general consensus on here is that tone controls denegrate the signal.

    Anything that modifies the absolute signal from source (CD,DVD,vinyl, etc) to the load (speaker) should be avoided. If using the tone controls on your receiver/amp, than you're adding additional circuitry into the signal path.

    Long term, I believe you'll get better listening enjoyment from NOT using tone controls.

    Usually right, but sometimes not entirely factually correct.

    im not using them either, just try them at zero see how you like it, if not, adjust it to your liking. Afterall, you paid for that setup.

    I'd agree with most everyone here that running it flat gives you what is on the CD - no more no less (if that is what you are after) but, as someone else said, its your stuff - do what you want with it :)
    Better to have and not need than to need and not have!
