integra receiver

I just got an Integra DTR 5.5 receiver the other day that I got from ebay. so far so good, sound is very good, definatly better than my 20 year old nad 7130.

One thing that I find a little weird though is the volume control... it seems to have a scale from 1 to 99, but it really isn't audiable till it gets to the mid 30's and I would say around 60 would be an average listing level. But turn it up a little more and it gets loud fast. At 70, it's crank'n and havn't really pushed it past that. To me, it doesn't really seam like a very lineir volume scale. Nothing I can't live with, but is this normal for this reciever?

My Rotel RSP-1066 pre-pro volume control acts V similar.
I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Re: integra receiver

Volume controls have various tapers allocated to them. A linear taper will advance the level in consistent amounts with each consistent advance of the control. Audio tapers are designed around nothing specific. Some controls give large amounts of level change at the lowest portions of the control's rotation. Others place that quick change at higher portions of the control. Since the numeric readout has no real relation to actual level, your control is set the way Onkyo thought best. As long as you can reach adequate level before you run out of volume control, you have nothing to worry about only something to get used to.
