Hi Fellow Bent Audio owners
It might be interesting to find out the nature of your amplifier that you are matching with your Bent TVC. My amplifiers are the superb CIAudio D*200 Monos with 26 dB (XLR). With my SB3, CDP, radio tuner or TV source I find myself utilising the volume between the 20 and 30 range, giving me satisfactory sound levels. However, in the rare occasion when I play a SACD track or DVD movie (like "The Mission" starring Robert De Niro) I find myself cranking it up to 31 (unity) and occasionally when the dialogue softens, it is at maximum 34!! As you know, the 6 DB automatically engages for the TAP beyond 31. While 90% of my listening raises no issues with a 26 dB amplifier gain, it would be nice to have more headroom with DVDs. I wonder if any of you are experiencing the same concerns? Would appreciate your views and observations!
