Help!!!!!!!
I just got an Onkyo TX-SR674 receiver and the Infinity TSS-4000 speaker package. Definitely not a cheap combo, but I'm having a very annoying problem:
I have to raise the volume to 50 or 60 in order to get decent volume (and I'm not talking window-shattering loud; far, far from it). The receiver's top volume setting is 99. Should I have to raise it to 50 to be able to watch a regular TV show, or a DVD?

The volume can be set to MIN, 1 through 99, or MAX.
The AV receiver is designed for home theater enjoyment. It has a wide volume
range, allowing precise adjustment.

This is directly from your manual. 1 being minimum volume....99 being maximum volume!! Try turning it UP to 30 and I'll bet it gets louder!!

Sounds perfectly normal to me. The only confusion is your expectation of what the level should be. Have you run the auto setup?

Very normal. My Denon goes from -90->00 (Denons go in negative decimals up to 00 which should be reference) and my normal listening position is -25 for regular TV and -20 to -15 for movies. Your Onkyo is no different. Basically, turn it up to the volume you want and ignore the number.
