Input sensitivity 8040

Hi!

I have a novice question. I use 8040 at home for pure stereo enjoyment with a Benchmark DAC2 HGC. Sounds great! Well, I have wondered for some time since the Benchmark can put out a high signal. Should I set the Benchmark to max out (0db) and the Genelecs to +6db (less sensitivity) or the other way around? Does it make a difference?

Thanks

Hi Jens,

Technically it does not make much difference at all, but of course you should test if you can hear any difference and choose the best option. :)

From my perspective i always recommend that users set their Genelec's to maximum volume if they have no reason to adjust it, eg matching SPL for another pair of speakers.

Leaving the Genelec's at maximum limit the possibility of sending the speakers a clipped input signal.

Thanks. I will try the other way around just for fun.
