I bought a ONKYO TXSR601 on Tuesday. It is replacing a very old Sony receiver that had no optical connections. I have a Onkyo DVD player connected to it thru the Optical input and I also have a Dish 801 connected the same way. My question is that my Sony receiver seems to be louder then the ONKYO. I have to have the new receiver at about 60 or higher to sound good. Am I missing something? My speakers are bose 301 in the front and sony everywhere else. Also my sub which is a piece of crap I have to have the levels all the way up to get any sound. What could be wrong?
