Onkyo HT-S3300 Volume level

I just bought the week an Onkyo HT-S3300 system. I think it's an amazing system. Last night I had some friends over and we plugged in an ipod into the front Auxiliary port to listen to some music. My friend noticed that we had to crank the volume upto 50 to get a good sound. Keep in mind we are about 18 people in first floor of my house. Room is about a 14 feet by 30 feet long. This sound system volume range starts from 0 and I think the max is 80, I've never actually tried to fully crank it and i am not planning to. My question is this the normal volume level or is it really high and maybe something is wrong with the amp?

Thank you for any help.

If you have an iPhone or compatible iPod Touch, there is an SPL Meter app for a few bucks that seems to work just fine (though I have nothing to compare it to).
