I Purchased an Onkyo A/V Receiver (TX-NR595) Its connected to TV Hdmi arc,dvd player and comcast box,no matter what im listening to,I have to turn volume to at least 38 to be able to hear It, i've tried every thing i can think of to hear something at lower volumes, its hooked to 5.1 speaker setup,any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!

Typically.you don't get much volume until about 80%

Best to use negative setting -20db not the 0-80

If using the relative scale then 38 isn't particularly loud. I'd suggest what you are hearing and the experience you are having are normal and there's nothing you've relarted that would raise concern.


As suggested, use the relative to reference db scale as opposed to the absolute master volume scale. This makes it easier to understand the exact level of audio you are or should be hearing:
