Question about Yamaha RX-V657 Receiver
Do you have the volume at -5dB when listening to source 1? That would in most cases be far beyond the receivers capabilities when listening on an average loud recording from a standard source. I would guess that your source has a way to low signal.
However, i assume the answer to the question is this:
There is a way to trim the levels of each source (Input). It can be adjusted -6dB to +6dB.
Select the input you want to adjust. Hit Set Menu on the remote. Then Manual Setup -> Input Menu - > Volume Trim. Adjust up or down. In your case adjust your source 1 to + 6dB and all other inputs to -6dB.

If it's only an analog source doing it I would suspect a bad switch contact somewhere in the signal path. Typically, it might be a switch you rarely use, like a Tape Monitor or Mute. It's wise to occasionally (with power OFF) manipulate all manual controls throughput their ranges a number of times to wipe oxides from their contacts.
