    1066 & RB985 - too quiet

    I've just built a new system, comprising the RSP 1066, RB985 Mk 2 and Dynaudio 42 speakers all round. I'm amazed at how quiet the system is. I'm never one for high volumes, and I know the Dynaudios aren't the most effiecient speakers but I'm amazed to find myself listening at MAX volume, and I wouldn't say it sounds loud.
    Is the amp underpowered for my speakers, or am I missing something in the settings?

    Just one quick thought. Have you calibrated your speakers utilizing an SPL meter? If not you may wish to try this option.

    Hope this helps,

      I own the RB985MKII + RB-981 as well, and it drives Jmlab speakers. The rears are still Tannoy's M1, and they are just as efficient as you Dynaudio's.

      Dynaudio is less efficient, but only about 2 Db less than average. It is not like old Rogers like 85Db/W/m.

      Your 985 should produce more than enough power. Try to recalibrate your speakerlevel using a Db meter.
