for anyone who owns or has any knowledge about the arcam 300. I currently own one and am curious as to what the reference volume level is for the reciever.

There's only one way to find out.

The receiver is only a very small portion of the SPL equation. Speakers, room size, and room accoustics play the major role, and there is no set number on the dial that will create 'reference levels'.

Dustin,

Do you mean to ask how high the volume goes for max output from a 2V input?

Can I infer that it doesn't sound very loud at 0dB?
How high does the volume dial go (without connecting your speakers)? +5dB, +10dB, +20dB?

well the dial reads from 0>lowest to 100>highest.

Oh, I see. Looking at their manual, I see that the volume still follows a logarithmic dB scale, so 100 is 100dB louder than 0. But they don't say where the max level is for a standard input. Assume around 90 or so, and turn it back down if it sounds bad.

THE ARCAM IS AMAZING!!
This thing is pristine very very low total harmonic distortion even at high volume .003%.
there is like 13 or 14 menus to set this thing up. its upgradeable. prologic2x. its like a computer but a receiver instead. 100 watts continuos power and when i say continuous it never loses a beat. done many tests with it using spl from radio shack. 7.1 SURROUND

my setup is as follows: ATHENA TOWERS AS-F2'S FOR FRONTS.
ATHENA AS-C1 CENTER CHANNEL
ATHENA AS-B2 RIGHT AND LEFT SURROUNDS
ATHENA AS-B2 RIGHT AND LEFT REAR SURROUNDS
SUBWOOFER SVS PB2+ (A FREAKIN BEAST!!!!)MY ANCHOR.
RECEIVER ARCAM DIVA 300 AWSOME (THE BRAIN TO THE SYSTEM).
