    I already tried unplugging and that did not help. Have not yet discovered where the reset button might be.

Sounds to me as if someone may have gotten into the menu to adjust the individual levels of each loudspeaker and cranked some of them way up. As to why the "main" volume level goes from1-20 now as apposed to 1-50, you got me there...

Is there a reset button or equivalent on the remote or the unit? Try that. Try unplugging the unit for 15 minutes...

The sound output is very low even using earphones can the audio output be upgraded to give a normal listening level.


Probably not without using separate amplified speakers. Check the mixer levels are set correctly.

How do I increase the overall loudness of a CD once it has been burned


What you need to do is find an option called "normalise" this makes the sound at the same level for all tracks on the CD. However I should point out that even some commercial discs are recorded at much greater levels then are needed. In otherwords they are loud!

How can I increase the loudness of the CDs burned on the internal CD-RW drive?


You can use a free software audio editing and recording program called Audacity. Using this program load your stereo track(s) into Audacity, then look in the effects menu and select normalize. Make sure to set highest loudness level to 0 db, which is the maximum digital volume level. You can hear the difference in volume when you use the test button. If you can't still get enough over all volume level with the normalize feature then you will need to compress and limit the stereo track, but I don't suggest getting your over all loudness levels that high because it ruins and lowers the dynamics of your music. Another words when you compress and boost the over all loudness of your album then all your music is at the same highest audio level which is very ear fatiguing. It may sound better to you at first at louder volume levels but you will quickly learn to hate it over time because it does not sound natural. That is why most music today is all about loudness and ear fatigue. And because of the loudness wars going on today every Record company is trying to have the loudest album out there thinking it will sell more copies. It is all false baloney, it really should be about the quality and dynamics of your sound instead of how loud it is.

The best Rec. levels


As with all recording levels it's best to keep them to a max of 0 VU on the level meter. Some say an odd peak into the red or above 0 VU is acceptable, but it should not go to high. Sett it on the loudest part of what you are going to record, then the rest of the time should be OK. Try some loud music first if it's all speech. That should set the right level for the speech. It is possible to increase the audio level on Audacity afterwards anyway.

My surround speakers are too loud. I have adjusted the speaker level, speaker distance and surround level but none of these seem to change. When i go back into menu it does reflect the changes but doesn't...


Did you try changing the front & center speakers to a higher level as well as setting the surrounds to a lower level? Are all speakers using the same wire gage?

Distorted recording and loud


If you're using the RCA cables, how is the switch set on the TT?

From the manual....

2. RCA Audio Output Cables: These cables should be plugged into a CD or Auxiliary input on your computer. IMPORTANT:
There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input.
