I believe you can adjust the overall volume in the main menu setup of the Classe? I think you have to set it to 0db. I have the 800 and am just going off of memory. Is the volume on the Oppo set to 100?

This is a wild question, but is your center channel turned on in the Classe processor? Are you actually getting some sound out of the center speaker? I have accidentally had my center channel amp turned off and the sound was similar to what you experienced. Most of the dialogue/content is put out on the center channel. If you only have left/right, you may hear some, but it will be VERY quiet.
I have a SSP800 and had similar problem.. When setting the balance between R & L speakers using an SPL meter , they say to set the meter to C weighting, slow response, and 75db range.. Unfortunately the meter app I downloaded on my smart phone can't be set at 75db.. 70 or 80 is the settings I can use... First I did the 70db and found the volume was low like how you described (but not as dramatic).. Next I used the 80db and that solved the problem.. Another thing that came to mind is - can your SP300 handle the HD codecs ? Try setting the Oppo to output regular Dolby/DTS .. Also I read somewhere that setting the bluray player isn't a good thing to do because the higher you set it, the bit rate drops... I have my Oppo volume set low and have no problem with the volume coming out..
