Do you set up the listening chair in the perfect position on your own in 'the listening room' and crank it up - true audiophile type of person? Or do you normally listen at a volume where you can also hold a normal conversation? Somewhere in between? I'm just interested in what other people do. Special chair or just sat on the sofa relaxing? Myself - It depends. If I have modified or reset something, I want hear if there is a difference (good or bad) so I will turn it up a bit to a kind of known test volume with a regular test record or CD. If I'm doing something else, like right now writing this while enjoying some Spyro Gyra - on vinyl of course - the volume is lower, but still slightly above quiet conversation level. I guess that is normal for me. How about you.
