Can we take sensitivity rating as it is, or is it like wattages ratings? My new B&W is rated at 90dB and so was my satelitte speakers. But, with this new B&W, I had to crank up volume by 5dB on my Denon to get about same volume level. Of course, at the same volume level, there is no comparison in terms of sound quality, but I was curious if sensitivity rating is different manufactures to manufactures or I'm seeing (or, rather listening to) difference between satellite and tower speakers.
