hi all finally set up my denon avc x4700h, i used audassy to set it all up, started to watch a movie through sky Q and i really have to have the volume up to 60 to properly hear it. you can’t hear a thing until it gets to 23 on the dial. is this normal for this amp? i had a x2300w before and that was really loud at 35.
i have a roksan k3 plugged into this amp and run the front 2 from that using the bypass input channels. It sounds great when 2ch stereo and blows your ears off at 60 on the dial.
any ideas?

Try looking at Dynamic Compression, change to light. But a lot prefer this off.

Do you have Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume On or Off?

In your volume set up change from the absolute scale 0-98 to the dB scale as it is easier to tell where abouts your listening levels are. SkyQ is notorious for different values on the volume of audio on films.

where abouts is that in the menu?
I think this is what is mean't. Dynamic EQ.

Settings>Audio>Audyssey>Dynamic EQ>on (default)/off.

Dynamic EQ​

Solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into account human perception and room acoustics.
Works with MultEQ® XT32.
On
(Default):
Use “Dynamic EQ”.
Off:Do not use “Dynamic EQ”.

Change the volume to dB and I'll compare to where you are with my Sky connection.

Settings>Audio>Volume>Scale.

That's good. Mine has to go higher than that with Sky, usually around -15dB, watching Prime on the SkyQ platform at that value at the moment. My speakers are a hard drive but I also have external amplification for the fronts as well and I'm using a more powerful Denon than the X4700. Room size will also play a part.
