My statement was a generalization. If you set the volume to zero in a small room and you are at 10 feet, versus in a large room and you're at 30 feet. There should be a big difference in volume level.

At least with everything I've heard here. I've not proven it out myself.

i don't think so, a HT is calibrated according to the room/speaker combination, and 75 dBSPL at the MLP is always 75 dBSLP.
it's just that the amps have to work harder in a larger room to give that specific SPL at the MLP.
the calibration compensates for differing room sizes.

Michiko

She's got a terrific electronic-blues sound going on. She writes, records and produces everything herself. Check her out on Spotify if you want. I recommend Feels So Nice

Possibly Brian and Jacques aren't talking about the same thing. If you calibrate(at "0")for 75dB at say a 10' listening distance, then for that same volume setting the level at 30' will certainly be lower, typically by 4-5dB. But of course if you calibrate at 30', then the level at that distance will be 75dB at 0, because that's how you calibrated, using over twice as much power for 75dB at 30' than at 10'.

Just bought Buble's CD two minutes ago from Amazon as a Xmas gift. He's good.
