It could be that the maximum volume limit has been switched on too low. Go to settings then playback and then volume limit, the volume control shows the maximum volume it has been set to. Use the click wheel to select your maximum volume and then press the centre button to set the limit. Then choose done. Hope this helps.
I have had that laptop once and had the same problem. I knew that it was the maximum volume of the speaker so I purchased external USB speakers to connect to the computer and the sound was clear and loud enough to hear anything played on the computer.
My Pioneer VSX-36TX (circa 2002) does the same thing. Modern AVR's count up from minus something to 0db and go just a few db higher into 'plus' territory. It seems arbitrary but that's how it is.
Ask yourself this: who ever really turned the volume knob up to maximum on any amp on purpose, and had speakers survive it? In other words, why have all that capacity on a potentiometer if you never use it?
Little known fact: With that in mind, Bose Corp actually designed a product that intentionally used the full physical travel of a volume control - the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System.
This type of calibartion is known as a logarithmic scale.
The numbers refer to decibels below the maximum output of the amplifier section of the reciever, or decibels of attenuation (making smaller/quieter).
Without going through logarithim theorey, the logarithim (base 10) of 1 is 0. So if 1 is the maximum output of the amp, as you turn the knob down from maximum you are adding more and more attentuation to the output (relative to maximum) and so the loudness of what you hear goes down, even though the number on the scale is going up !
Most peolpe associate decibels with sound levels, but anything can be measured in decibels, so long as there is soemthing to reference it against.
If you are using a cable box with this set, the problem may be in the box settings. Try this: open the settings menu on the box . You may have to select"more settings" or something like that title to find the audio selections. Under the audio, you will find recording and viewing volume settings. put these to maximum and save. Your volume should now be more than adequate.
I was playing around with my Sherwood RD 6513 and adjust the the output level to its maximum, amongst other settings. This limited my output on the amp to a maximum volume of 65 not 90+.. Anyway i pluged in the microphone and done another 'auto setup' of the volume levels and distances, and this allowed the volume to exceed 65 again!
Also if you have an external source such as a DVD player - i would assume you have already checked its output volume setting?
Set your SAT receiver to full volume and use your Sony TV volume control as the master volume control. If you use an external surround sound amplifier do the same thing using the amplifiers volume control as the master volume control.
Consider that all source devices that have the ability to control their output volume will output what they call line level 0dB when the source device is set for maximum volume. If you set the source device to 1/4 volume your output to the amplifier may be around -25dB or lower. Introduce that low of an audio level to the amp and you will have to turn the amp up to half way or better causing the amp to amplify noise too.
