    I have often pondered this question,maybe some of you can help.On my Denon each channel has volume adjustment from -12 to +12.If this is set to +12, max output,would this signal be over driven?If it is set to -12 is there excess noise?If it is set to 0 am I losing lot,s of volume for no reason?So what is the max ch level vol. from -12 to +12 for cleanest signal,does it matter? p.s. with this ? I am not concerned with calibration,Thanks in advance!

    Like Bob said, these settings are purely for calibration.

    If you set all channels to +12, and your volume knop at -12 this would be identical to when you set all channels to 0 and your volume at 00 (or channels to -12 and your volume to +12)

    Then I conclude thew answer is it does not affect the quality of the( signal).thanks,also I know and use the principles of calibration,I just did not want the question to be confusing.

    Sound & Vision magazine has measured high distortion at the subwoofer output on some receivers with worst-case test signals, even though the receiver's subwoofer trim is set to 0. For such receivers, Sound & Vision now specifies the subwoofer trim level necessary to avoid distortion.
