I just purchased a Durabrand CD player and every time I turn it on, the volume automatically is set at 17 which is quite loud. I turn it down to around 8 or 9 and then turn it off but when I turn it right back on, it is back at 17. How do I get my stereo to not do this? I would like the volume to stay where I previously set it when I turned it off. Please help. Thank you!

Re: Volume Issue with CD Player by Durabrand.
It just seems a setting problem.
go to AUDIO SETTINGS or MENU.it will have "ON VOLUME".
press volume control -ve to get desired volume.
press AUDIO or MENU to store volume level.Next time u turn it ON ,the volume will be what u SET. OK i hope this solves your problem.

You are describing one of the inherent problems in assembling various pieces of equipment into a complete system. Unless your Kenwood receiver has some provision for equalizing the various input levels, you will just have to adjust each one manually.
"You can purchase a generic power cord at Radio Shack. I had the same exact model and found that their catalog number 61-2875 was a perfect fit. It lists for $7.99. To be sure, take your radio in for an exact match. Good luck! :o)"
You could try plugging into this socket if it is a phono socket.
If it is a little square black hole its probably a digital only sock and it wom't be compatable with your CD player, etc.
If the sockets and plugs match turn the volume to ZERO - turn off the amp, plug in the CD, etc. and with a disc in it press play.
Turn the volume up VERY slightly and listen for any sound.
Try the different input buttons to make certain the circuit is complete.
Keep the volume low as you don't want to damage the speakers.
Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.
Again, onkyo has downloadable cd software (its free) that you run threw cd player via fiber optics that will fix the issue. onkyo.com,choose region,click support at the bottom of page find Download Center or Software Downloads/Updates: for info. With onkyo its usually a simple chip issue. If that fails , find contact support , e-mail them your issue and simply ask for a downloadable repair disc- I did.
The source volume is too high or output from source is too powerful or the receiver is damaged. Try turning the volume down on the source device (cd player/dvd/satellite receiver etc) and recover the overall volume by turning the amp up. Also if the source device has any tone controls, return them to a flat setting, again using the amp to recover the sound richness.
