And I must also be more tired than I thought since I'm really concerned with the S-meter, not the A-meter...

My values are quite different for the default values. For example, in my case I need 107 counts for S-9+50 dB while the default is 221. S-9 is displayed for me with 55 counts while the default is 89. All of mine are much closer together than the default values.
