    Hi there.
    I am trying to automatically set up my home theater using the MCACC and I have found out that at the "Channel Level Setup" it subtracts from each channel -6.5db to -8.0db. Those values that are generated by the MCACC how much accurate are they?
    Can I add the same db to each channel and still keep the balance? For example add +2db to each channel?
    Why the receiver does not keep the balance with values closer to 0db?
    Thanks in advance.
    Nicolas

    its so that the values are correct, i.e. listening at 0db after the setup would be "reference level" in your room. In theory everyone who runs the setup will have the same volume in their room at any particular volume. It won't reduce your max volume at all.

    After the automatic calibration the MCACC indicator should be on(ALL CH ADJUST)??
    Only then the settings of the automatic calibration are used??
