Hi, I have a Yamaha 2400 with Axiom M22 speakers/VTF-2 sub. At what DB on the volume control should I expect the sound to get "loud". Right now I need to turn the volume up to at least 15-10dB before it sounds "loud". I've had it above 0dB and it didn't seem unbearably loud. On some CDs, I can barely hear the receiver if I turn it down below 35dB (specifically the new Dark Side of the Moon SACD in 2 channel mode). I read the manual thoroughly and can't find anything that I'm missing.

I had a Yamaha RXV-2092 and Klipsch floorstanders before the 2400/axioms and the 2092 definitely sounded louder. I don't routinely play my music that loud but this seems a little odd?

As far as sound goes, the 2400/M22 combo is incredibly clear and accurate. The 2400 is a definite improvement over the 2092 in fidelity and has a more subdued sound than the older Yammie.

thanks for the responses.

A description of "loud" is very subjective.
Use a sound pressure level measurement device (a SPL from Radio Shack) to better quantify your question.
Some ppl consider 80dB to be loud whereas others may think 100dB is not loud enough.
Most bookshelves of that size can reproduce a fair amount of sound but depending on yout room size, you may have considered full size towers instead.
