Question about Philips FWC788 CD Shelf System
I have had my FWC788 for three plus years now and it sounds great. I have one question about it that has always irritated me and thats with headphones. Whenever I connect headphones with it (I use Sony MDRV600; Ive tried others though) no matter how high I turn the volume it sounds very quiet. I pretty much just use my computer now if I want to listen to music at nights (which is no problem) but wonder if theres anyway to get the volume to be loud on this stereo with headphones or why it seems so quiet? I've had plenty of cheap radios and other name brand stereos at half the cost of this one that never had this tiny issue with it.
The unit probably has resistors or a limitor curcuit to limit the amount of audiop going out on the headphones. It could probably be modifyed but it would possiblt burn out the headphones as this is a 280watt peak power unit . Its there so you dont blow out your ears.you could use some wireless self powered headphones as that would solve your problem!! Good Luck
