Onkyo 606 vs Sony 1200ES


Established Member
OK, the obvious differences are well known but can anyone tell me why my Sony seems so much more powerful than the Onk ?
I was very impressed by the sound quality with TrueHD and DTS Master but this new Onk just doesn't seem to have the grunt of the Sony.
I haven't fully digested the contents of the manual yet and i also found a volume adjustment in the Onks setup to raise it to 79 but this didn't seem to do anything, i'm stuck with 61 then max and no more.
I did think it might have been the Audyssey EQ that throttled the volume, still, it's early days so a bit more tweaking might win out unless the brains out there can throw a little my way.
Incidentally, i'm feeding the Onk Sky HD, PS3 and Tosh EP35
Cheers guys any info appreciated.
