A customer gave me his Kenwood VR-4090 and I have replaced my Sony STR-DE635 with it.
I have been playing with the settings and I still have to turn it up to 22(low99-high1) to get the projection I got from the Sony at half volume. The speakers are BIC America Venturi V60s with a BIC center, Bose rears, and a Sony subwoofer. Everything is working. It is clean and sounds very good, but when I looked it up all the reviews were bragging on how much sound you got out of this.
I don't have a remote for it, and judging from the photos of it, there is probably soome stuff I can't alter without it. I am trying to get one or a programmable that "knows" the Kenwood code.
There may be nothing wrong and I am just not used to the different sound but I need some independent confirmation. Thanks, Chuck
