    I have the 6060 also. Yes, this is normal. I watch most of my movies with the receiver's volume set between -25db and -30db. For intense movies like Lord of the Rings,-30db was VERY loud. How loud you have to adjust your volume can depend on many things, such as room size, how efficient your speakers are and the source that you are listening to. For example, I usually play music cd's at around-35db, which is loud enough for my tastes. Another thing to consider is whether you have calibrated your speakers with a test disc and a sound meter. I noticed a huge improvement in the sound after calibration.
    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, I also have to turn it up to around -35db for "good" sound. I have not yet calibrated it though. Still have to go to Radio Shack to get the meter.

    I usually watch TV at around -45 to -40db. Movies are more like -35 to -30db. So yes, what you're experiencing is normal.

    My receiver (Yamaha HTR-5590) is set at -47.5, so I don't think thats anything out of the ordinary. [​IMG]
