    I've had my 2011 for a couple of months now, been very happy with it. Just a couple of completely pointless things to discuss.... :)

    Volume.... the various amps I have owned for the last 20 years that go 1-10 or 12. What's with this new fad of going from -50 to +12..? what's all that about? ;)

    Pointless question given room, speakers etc but just out of interest.... What's the average volume setting people run at? So far it's been -10 to 15 for movies when the neighbours are out and -25 for normal TV etc....

    Any other comments about the amp? I personally hate the remote!

    -50? Mine goes from -80 to +12.

    Typical music listening is -35. For movies -20 is pretty loud, I doubt I could watch a whole movie at that level. -25 to -30 is more like it. My room is 24' by 13' by 10' (LxWxH) though the speakers are in 2/3 of it due to furniture.

    This is all using the acoustic calibration settings selected by the receiver during auto-setup.

    I've only been playing with mine since last night but I am impressed so far. Review to follow shortly, maybe tonight if I have the time.

    -80 it is ........ can't even claim that the 5 is next to the 8!

    Personally I have found that the Auto set-up does the level and distanaces really well but not very pleased with the EQ settings. It's also a pain when the peoples mobiles keeps on ringing half wau through the set-up process!
