    Most amps / receivers have a large rotary control called 'Volume'...:D

    Sorry! Couldn't resist

    :blush:


    The '0dB' thing is all about the 'reference' volume level set by the manufacturer, and, certainly with a Sony, you won't need to go anywhere near it.

    I've got an STR-DB780, and -35dB (-30dB is the house is otherwise empty) is plenty for me. Normal TV listening with DPLII I tend to get to -40dB or thereabouts.

    All manufacturers seems to set different reference levels, so comparisons are pointless. I have a friend with the earlier kit to yours, and it is plenty loud enough!

    You can't make them go louder. According to the spec the amp is 100w per channel, which should be plenty loud enough unless you live in a barn with no roof.

    make it louder!!! :eek:
    100watt is enough for me!
    100 watt with 2 speakers are loud but with 6 speakers it is very very loud for a normal livingroom.
