    What is your source? It should get loud enough for a small room like that.

    That's not bad. The denon will go to +18 on DD, and +7 on DTS.

    Other denon's get to reference at around 0 db, not sure about the 1602. Other brands get to reference at way less than 0dB.

    yeah, if you haven't boosted your mains, center, or surrounds, you can get well past 0.
    Try it and let us know if it gets loud enough for you. [​IMG]
