    Most Denon's will go higher (+18 if I remember correctly) but the max potential volume will be reduced if you have any channel levels that are in the + figures e.g FL +3. Room EQ also affects it the same way when certain frequencies are boosted.

    In practice you shouldn't need to ever go above 0db.

    i would like to know about this because i connect my denon with TV, then use KEF iQ9 louder speakers. I tried to test the sound from TV, it's quite low if i run about -30dB. some channels still low even I set around -12dB. Then one time, I turned to +1 or +2, it's really loud. I can't find any recommendation about I should use over 0 or not, that's why I posted a topic here.

    Might be that whatever you're using as a TV source (set-top box?) has a low volume output. Check it's menus as you can usually adjust the output. With my setup, -30db is plenty loud enough although I might occasionally go to -25db for HD channels.
