Hey SME. How are you doing?
Thanks for the info. +/-3db is what Iíve read mostly, but I know that there are a number of people that go with varying settings for varying reasons. Since I run a Denon what you said interests me. Currently my sub is at -2.5, I donít go louder that -16 on the master volume (generally -17 or -18) and I use HDMI, so I guess that Iím ok as far as clipping goes. Of course I wouldnít know clipping if it bit me on the ÖÖ
What you said about the Oppo is interesting too. Iíve been thinking about getting one. I have 3 players right now (Panasonic DVD-S77 (DVD and DVD-Audio), Toshiba HD-A2 (HD-DVD) & Panasonic DMP-BDT210 (Blu-ray)). Iíd like to trim down to one player and add SACD capability. I donít use the HD-DVD so itís not a factor. Since I would be using HDMI, clipping in the Oppo shouldnít be an issue?
