    Hi :hiya:

    Have a Yamaha 2400 and a Denon 1910 DVD player - speakers consist of

    603s as left and right - cc6 as centre - rel quake and rel 100e

    when watching TV or playing games having the amp on -15 is plenty loud enough and its impossible to hear anyone else in room talking

    however,

    when watching DVD the impact is just not there

    even at -10 I can hear the keys being pressed as I type this and watch the matrix :( :eek:

    There seems to be very little loudness and impact

    any ideas why ?

    amp was self calibrated using the mic - and using spl speakers are at 75db - bass sent to both front and subs - with fronts set as large and the speaker level connections also used

    Duncan, I remember you posted a while ago regarding DRC, well some DVD players also have a Dynamic Range Control which cuts down on frequencies for late night viewing. Usually 3 settings best switched off so you get full on sound from all frequencies. Maybe thats a possibility?

    Put more volume? The amp won't break, the different sources just are out of balance.

    Surely -10 on amp should be blowing your nuts off :eek: mine on -20 nearly shakes the house down and gets me evicted!!

    Yes it could, it depends on the amp, speakers and the room at least. If I think sound is too low on db's, I simply put more.

    PC, TV, dvd/cd all are different on levels, it even depends on the disc. Db's on the screen don't mean anything unless they are calibrated and proven right.

    Night mode is one possibility.

    When you calibrate the amp with the YPAO have you changed the equilizer setting? If you havent change it to FRONT and then re-run it. It should make the sound much better overall.. Also try taking the speakers ot mall and the bass out to the sub alone. I found that was the best way for me. Also check the 2400 hasnt got the dynamic range compression turned on. Finally use a SPL meter if you have one to check the setup and remeasure the speaker distances as the YPao is only so good :eek:

    Hope this helps.

    On the 1400 its under Manual setup:sound

    Have you also checked the volume control on the dvd player?

    I would suggest reading both manuals a couple of more times to see if theres something you have done by accident thats compressing the sound.

    I would happily offer to take the 2400 of your hands and have a look myself :D :rotfl: :eek:

    From the DVD to the amp I assume you are using co-axial or optical. Apart from Dynamic range control nothing should effect the level of volume.
    Have you tried the analogue connections from the 1910 to the amp? See if they are louder then the digital connection.
