    I am trying to balance out the system using a SPL and most people say set the Amp vol to 70db. The Denon shows volume as -70 upwards. Does anyone know what that translates to in terms of db and what setting I should have to achive 70db before I start the test tones?

    Thanks! :thumbsup:

    When you do this with the amp you go into speaker configuration the channel level.
    When you start the test tone the amp automatically changes its volume to the one you need.
    You then need to adjust it to 75 db for each channel.
    The amps volume should read 0.0 for this.

    Thanks but when the test tone starts, the amp is showing -25 or whatever volume I have felt comfortably with. I have balanced out on that figure but my only concern is that your can alter the speaker levels with the < & > keys but also the master volume with + & - keys. Wasn't sure if it made any difference or not.

    Cheers

    i believe you're supposed to set the amp to read "00" as the volume and then adjust the individual speaker levels so that the SPL reads 75db for all channels. I haven't done it but that is my understanding.

    Problem is, if I set the amp to 00 and start a test tone then half the street would be banging on the door! Thats very loud. With the SPL set at 70db, and the volume at -25, I can set the test tone to hit 0db on the SPL no problem. Anything more and it seems too load for the 70db setting.

    Managed to do it at 00 whilst I noted that the neighbours were out - not as bad as I imagined it would be. All nicely balanced at 75db and sounding a treat.

    Thanks :thumbsup:
